Derek and Francis took me up to the pilanesberg for a few days we went to sun city the first day which is a huge casino and hotel, internationally known, its also one of the few things i remember about south africa from when i was 6. the next day we went to the game park and drove around the majority of the day, i saw: lots of elephants, springbok,rhino,eland, zebra, wildebeest, and many other kinds of buck. the next day I was able to sleep in and relax in the morning Francis and i walked around the resort and had lunch while derek was at a meeting in sandton city. when he got back we went for a drive over the Hartebeespoort dam. At the resort while we were having dinner different cats and kittens came in to the house begging for food and fighting over the scraps i fed them (even though i wasn't supposed to....I couldnt help it) On the last day we packed up and left for the lion and rhino park. i soon learned that rhino make me very nervous especially when they are close to the car and walking towards us...they are incredible animals. I was also able to pet more lion cubs!!!!two of them one was 4 weeks and the other was 6 weeks. They were playing on my lap, thats how i got bit by one on my hip it left a bruise but i didnt mind. after driving trhough the park and seeing more buck!( i think ive seen almost every kind now) we walked across the road to where they keep some more animals. I saw hippos and a white tiger!! and more zebra i stopped to take a good picture of one of the zebra and he started walking straight towards me and stopped right in front of me so i reached out slowly to see if he would let me pet him, and he moved up his nose to my hand!! it was so cool! i pet a zebra!!!!!!
