Heres the first of many instalments. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Timbo Trip North then South.

Day 1. 20th August 2007

Today was the day I had been waiting for, for so long. I had been counting down the days from the like 55, so you must know it was a big day. Woke up at 4h00 and guess where I was at 4h30, on the forum saying goodbye again. We packed and we were off. Arrived at Bela Bela at 6 something, to have some breakfast, at the wimpy. We were off again by 7h00. Then the exciting bit happened, we started going past game fences after game fence. I peered in to each of these game fences with excitement, I think you could only feel if you were representing your country in something. Saw quiet a bit. We went through Davids kloof and that other kloof. Forget its name. We arrived at Tshipise by lunch. Tshipise is a must visit. It is stunning, with its flowers everywhere and its birdlife, the little bokkies we saw running down the fence and the monkeys which can be a nuisance. Saw lots of different birds and relaxed the rest of the afternoon.

Sightings of the day.

Buffalo
Blesbok
Wildebeast
Baboon
Vervets
Duikers.

Ps. I will provide a link to the photos and video, when I have finally gone through it.
