Safari! Part 1 – posted Sept 15, 2016

South Africa is famous for its wildlife and for its safaris. From earlier times, these were for hunters. Now they are places for people like me who love the wildlife, want to protect them and capture only their images as our trophies. Although it probably originated from hunting days, there are five animals that constitute “The Big Five” and apparently, it is every safari-goers ambition to see all five. Did I do it? Find out as I post each of my six game drives.

The big five are, in alphabetical order: cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino.

It was March 27, and I was headed for the Arathusa Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sands near Kruger Park. Now, that’s a welcome with a warning.
