Not just another game drive

A travel blog entry by geosan.479


... to wake up the other guests. Terry and David are leaving after breakfast today, so there will be just six of us on the evening drive. Today is our walking tour, we are on our way around 5:00. Sue isn’t feeling well, so she doesn’t join us. We are joined by Andre, another guide who also carries a big rifle. The rifles are not covered up this time. Andre is more of the botanist, so between him and Johan, we learn a lot about the wild flowers and grasses. ...

... of months.

The sun came out! It's been about 35 degrees most days. We got to go to a local bush pub on Saturday night which was fun, and slightly weird having a pub in the middle of the bush!

This week we're off up Mariepskop Mountains which is a very biodiverse area where we do small mammal research (and swim in the river). Can't wait. Sorry no pictures as yet. Will try next week.
