We arrived to their beautiful home in the evening and had a wonderful Roast Chicken dinner and enjoyed some drinks before heading to the most comfortable bed in the world. The next morning, we were spoiled with an amazing breakfast before we headed out to the Lion Park.
The Lion Park gives you the opportunity to pet lion cubs as well as seeing some of the other animals nearby
By 11:30, it was time for our final game drive. With fingers crossed and huge smiles, we hopped into the the metal caged truck and were on our way through the park to view the animals. At first, it was quite familar, we saw more zebras, more antelope and some hyenas. We were sure that THIS time we would be able to see lions though too. We wre NOT disappointed!!! The guide turned the truck down a new path and suddenly we were driving past a female white lion lounging in the sunlight a bit of a distance away. We did not spend much time here as apparently we would be seeing way more lions much closer to the truck.
Again we weren't disappointed. Our next stop, we encountered an entire pride of lions, including one beautiful male who even gave us a loud roar as we were sitting there watching them
Not only did the lions get up and walk around for us, the male lion 'got it up' and showed us all why he is called "King Of The Jungle". When he finished she rolled on the ground and he let out a mighty roar. It was a proud day for all of male-kind.
We somehow pulled ourselves away from the lion park and that afternoon Dawn took us out for lunch, then to a bird show and then out for supper at a fabulous restaurant. Like I said, we were treated like royalty. It will be sad to leave them tomorrow, but we want to spend as much time through the Garden Route as possible. Only two and a half weeks left to see it all! We have bought our Baz Bus tickets and are ready to start the last portion of our trip. It should be great!
Hugs and Love,
Dana and Trevor
