Elephants, Rhinos, Lammergeiers, Cheetah - but not in Penkridge

Just returned from a trip of a lifetime. We joined "C" who has worked at a Research Station in the middle of an African Game Reserve for 3 years. We lived in a wooden bungalow in the middle of the Reserve for 2 weeks, driving around the Reserve each day. This is a White Rhino with a baby only a few days old. My first visit to Africa and my wife and I can't stop talking about the country, the animals, the birds, the snakes, the trees, the people, the problems, the opportunities, the poverty, the diversity, etc. etc. If you get a chance to visit then take it - you won't regret it. You may come back very concerned at some of the things you see but it is an experience you will always remember - and you will always remember Rhinos and Elephants, Cheetahs and Giraffes, Vultures and Eagles, Snakes and ghekkos, whales and pelicans, zebras and buffalo, Leopard and monkeys, Trogons, etc. etc.
