It's Monday and I'm feeling wild!

As I mentioned yesterday, we spent the weekend at Lindani game farm in the Limpopo province. The farm is well stocked with a large variety of animals and many of them are not shy at all! We took a daily walk around the farm, while the children tore down the dirt roads on their bicycles. Even though I have lived in Africa all my life and have had countless opportunities to view game, I still find it awe inspiring to be able to actually walk in the veld together with these wild animals. It really is such a privilege.

These little warthogs were very curious and could not stop themselves from coming closer for a look at the new guests. They were slightly nervous at first, but by the second day I was the nervous one as they were coming so close!

These giraffes also watched us with great interest as we walked by, but quickly moved farther away when we came too close.

Anyone we know?

I used to be a tourist guide and got to visit many game reserves countless times over the years and never got tired of it. I always look forward to see animals and get as excited as a first time visitor when I see animals.
