Jessie’s Safari

She passed her matric, so got to choose her holiday! A Safari, Dad!

At Nambiti outside Ladysmith. Springbok Lodge. Jess loved the accommodation and the food and the big beasts.

There were also wonderful little beasts.

Here’s the best one. Tascha got a better pic than me: A Harlequin Quail!

The food was really special, the chef took great pride in his work. Jess took to our Ranger Tascha the Pom and loved the drives.

Here she watches three male lions try to attack hippos in a dam. The hippos were having none of it, so there was a standoff. Threats and splashes.

On the other end of the scale I watched a tiny green mantid nymph (half the size of a matchstick) rock and sway, trying to look like a leaf, then dart forward on his four legs – no wings yet – then sway and mimic a leaf in a breeze. Amazing feisty little fella was stalking ants, it seemed. I clean forgot to take a picture!
