We headed to the beach instead of doing a game safari this morning, so we were able to sleep in an extra hour. Although it gets bright so early, that we really did not sleep in.
We boarded the boat and cast off around 7:15. The wind was at our backs on the way there, so it was not too cold. The sun is out and the wind is fairly calm right …
So finally at the game reserve after a few hours drive. There are ten volunteers with one member of staff! Let's see what will happen in the next four weeks. Feeling slightly apprehensive to the amount I am going to see as appear to have already seen more than this reserve happens to have.

... the Easternmost part of the game reserve. It was very refreshing! Photos from those drives are posted below.
We shared our experiences with Brenda and Lawrie Dilks, from England. Félix and Sébastien described them as "very, very kind people". We had many discussions, shared many laughs and our meals together. We are grateful for their presence and their camaraderie.
... was a nice fitting to a fairly tiring morning from a restless sleep the night before! we headed back through the main reserve stopping to take in some of the animals on the way, some 'too close for comfort' Buffalo and some Giraffes with babies cruising on by...I just don't get bored seeing these animals day in day out...perhaps you have to be here to know what I am saying? I am now in PE again for the weekend so until next time... :)
much love JT x
