Robben Island

A travel blog entry by kvstark


A few notes from my notebook that I didn't write earlier. We saw wild ostriches at the Cape of Good Hope! It was incredible. We were just driving down to the actual cape when there was just one walking on the side of the road, and then we saw another too. It was crazy and awesome. There were also lots of signs about not feeding the baboons, although we didn't see any.

At the wineries in Constantia there are signs in the bathrooms in English and ...

... and as we expected Brock and I got along great with them, and the four of us along with the two bar tenders had a fun night together.

We went for a walk around the harbour area today and some of us did a spot of shopping. Had PDD's in our room as we missed out on lunch polished off another bottle of bubbles. Then went to dinner in the ***********tails only $5, so we took advantage of ...

Lions and Cheetahs and rhinos!!

A travel blog entry by ahollingsworth

... as well as with other animals. The springboks are herd animals with brown and white coats. When they are all together, they have a defense mechanism where they all hop up and down, making it hard for predators to track them. Although we didn't see them being hunted, they also do this when they are just playing. They were so cute all hopping around together. After we saw the herbivores and our guide passed around rhino poop, we went into the ...
