Day 7

A travel blog entry by scubanut


After spending a night just outside Dundee in a lovely colonial house with an excellent host, we travelled to the battle fields. Our first stop was at Rorkes Drift, to see the lay of the land and imaging 4,000 Zulu bearing down on your position was truly thought provoking.

We ended up with three mice in total. None of which were in my two rows... Awkward.

A travel blog entry by tunnockscaramel


... two groups, half of us went to the cheetahs first, and half the servals first.

We were cheetahs first, which was pretty cool. We went straight into a large enclosure with five cheetah inside. Three had not been bottle reared, so although used to humans and relatively tame they were not approachable. Two of them, Sky and Storm, were fantastic though.
