    ... away but we could see them clearly in the binoculars. A sad story on the Rhino's is that they are becoming very protected and endangered right now in Africa. Poachers are tranquilizing them and cutting off their horns and in a very evil way. They are cutting so deep, that they are taking away literally part of their face and leaving them to die.

    ... the rhino from extinction. The Reserve is monitored and guarded to protect against poachers. The animals are tagged and tracked for scientific and medical purposes, as well as for future identification. We didn’t know we were to actually be part of a tagging adventure.

Missed our pizza night and the chance to do some shopping because of the pesky deers but alls good again in the world. Off to the restaurant in the game reserve tonight for a free meal and discounted drinks, life is ...
