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 :p I lived in the Mpumalanga Province next to Kruger Park, I've seen so many beautiful animals and landscape, so friendly people there :wavey: and our guide, Grant, was extraordinary, a philosopher former ranger, with a special laugh :lol: He did teach us a lot of thing about wildlife and life in general THANK YOU GRANT we are missing you so much :sad:
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 :confused: :lol:
Here are some pix

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

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

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... :confused: )
S.A. is a beautiful country I was said Cape Town was a nice place too :) Mpumalanga is very wild...

SA! Magnificent country! I spent a good half year over there. Was based at a university in Cape Town and spent a few months doing research in the Eastern Cape. I'd go back there any day! :)
