Hollidays in Sout Africa...

I 've just come back from my hollidays...and I discover a wonderful country so I wanted to share my feelings with you... This country is Sout Africa..I was gone to improve my english with others teens but it was more touristic than schooling I lived in the Mpumalanga Province next to Kruger Park, I've seen so many beautiful animals and landscape, so friendly people there and our guide, Grant, was extraordinary, a philosopher former ranger, with a special laugh He did teach us a lot of thing about wildlife and life in general THANK YOU GRANT we are missing you so much
Here is a poem he wrote in the " Livre d'Or" of our trip :

A dream is life
Life is a dream
Life without a dream is nothing
Learn one new thing a day
and it will pave the path
to one of your dreams
the motto of life is thus
Never stop dreaming


This guy was really amazing and a little bit crazy I thing
Here are some pix

part I

Animals from Cheetah Breeding Project and Wilife Rehabilitation Project in Moholoholo



Awesome animal..cheetah


So cute


These animals ( wild dogs ) just eat their prey alive, when they are hunting them


A hyena, from so far it looks like a big teddy bear, but it will eat you as soon as you open the door

We saw this leopard when he was eating, it's very rare...


This rhino is another animal of " the Big 5" who are the 5 most dangerous animals to hunt in S.A, buffalos, rhinos, elephants, lions and leopards


Beautiful giraffe


Zebras, they crossed the road in front of the bus


Look these big horns, it was a very old and lucky animal..an elant


Babar !


Little antelope called Impalas ( lions fast food ) in Skukuza Camp where we slept

e...Shangana ( African village)


In the center : crocodile very good ! , grey thing it's impalas and on the left that's tree worms and oy's simply disgusting


African dance

Re: Hollidays in Sout Africa...

Yes Kruger Park is huge ! you should go there..maybe you will be lucky enough to see the Big 5 in one day( I almost did it, cause I'm not sure I saw the lion it was more a little little brown thing far away behind a herd of impalas...we were told there were lions but... )
S.A. is a beautiful country I was said Cape Town was a nice place too Mpumalanga is very wild...
