Game Park




Monday was a transition day. We moved out of our awesome Inkwazi (sp?) hotel and went to the mall to meet up with Dawid. Kevin, Jp and Coleman all headed back to the States today so now there are 4 of us. We headed north on the N4 through Pretoria headed for Rustenburg and the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Here we were treated to a Tom Cole special. Up at 5:30 am to make it to the gates of the reserve by 6:30. We spotted some baboons playing on a dam immediately upon entering the park and it only got better from there. We had multiple encounters with white Rhinos with some getting a close as 5 feet to our car. We saw 2 different giraffes, Hippos, Vervet Monkeys, jackals,Warthogs and everthing in the antelope family like Hartabeest,Kudu, Tssebe, Waterbuck, Wildebeest and Zebra. On the way out after 12 hrs of game watching we finally saw some Elephants as well off in the distance. It was a most excellent day. Got to see 2 0f the big 5 ( Big 5 = 5 most dangerous animals in Africa, Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhino, Cape buffalo).
I couldnt get Toms pictures before he balled out to Botswana at 5am the next morning but I will load up some of Adams pictures later on today. Not having a laptop or camera is proving to be a little more difficult than I thought so I am very sorry for not updating this faster. Internet access has been a little difficult to find, and honestly everytime I find a computer someone is yelling at me to go somewhere else or I have been in the paintball store.
