South Africa-Yeah!

Photo by Opus & Roscoe

The safari trip is now officially on the way! We met up with the Italians at the airport in Rome and boarded our private jet, could not use the MFV as it still is missing, and headed for South Africa. The trip was a long and tiring one. Lucky for us we had plenty of reading material to keep us busy and a lot of time to catch up on some rest for those that needed it.

We arrived in South Africa as the sun was peeking up over the horizon of the earth. Notice the buzzards in the trees, just part of the beautiful African scene.

With our map in hand we rented our vehicle that would get us to the Amakhala Game Reserve. Opus navigated us toward our destination and we encountered an African habitat along the way. I am not sure if he was more curious about us or us about him.

Posing for photo outside our hotel.

Momo and me unpacking in our room.

The Italians settling in.

As you can see by the palm pilot we have a full schedule and also are still setting day trips up. Now we must all get a good nights sleep as tomorrow we will venture our and meet some of our distant relatives, the lions.
