Two days……. It’s been a ridiculously heart breaking year.. We worked our buts off, we partied like nobody’s business, I got scared when I heard Leandra was in a car accident, when Oom Nico was rushed to hospital, when my mom phoned to tell me about my dad, but its coming to an end and I’m going to enjoy that end with my family (at least the ones that are around and in Cape Town) I CAN NOT WAIT!

Lion and Rhino Park

Last weekend we took a day trip to the Lion and Rhino Park in the Cradle of Mankind. What an amazing experience! Please visit their website by clicking on the link, they do amazing work there. It was a perfect day-trip from Johannesburg. There’s a restaurant, braai facilities, etc.

The main attraction though was the cubs.. We could go into several camps to “play with the tiger and lion cubs, truly an amazing experience even at my advanced age lol!!!

My other personal highlight (difficult to choose..) was the mother rhino and her calf. I could sit and watch the for ages, they are such gentle animals, and I really wish the poaching of these magnificent creatures could stop.

Have a look at some of my favorites for the day.
