Nan Hua Temple Chinese New Year 2014

Today we went to visit the Budist Temple in a small town, Bronkhorstspruit, not too far from us. Nan Hua Temple opened their doors to the public to celebrate the Chinese New Year, the year of the Horse.

What an amazing experience, we will defenitly do it again. I believe you can also join them for lunch on Sundays.

Here are a couple of my favourites from today:

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.
