Hollidays in Sout Africa...

08-18-2005, 10:05 PM
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

part I

Animals from Cheetah Breeding Project and Wilife Rehabilitation Project in Moholoholo

Awesome animal..cheetah

So cute :D

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

Kruger National Park

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 ! :lol:

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

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! :)
