A few months back i had the prevelage of taking first time visitors to a special place in the south somewhere. A beautifull place set on a almost koppie like scene. It overlooks a dry river bed on the one side, with big boulders in the one corner and almost a flat open area on the other side. I can imagine that if God would have a off day, He would spend it there.
Had a beautifull braai the evening and an ellie walked up to us on the other side of the fence. Imagine the most stars you have seen, and then multiply that with a hundred. Thats how clean the night sky was.
At about 4 we were waken by the sounds of the kings of jungle, but too dark to spot. They spoke their mind untill after sunrise, when the city people thought it was save to emerge from their tent. I walked with my mate to look for the lions, which by now was probably busy getting ready for a early morning nap. On the way to the one end we saw two rhinos grazing and that was it. Nothing else. So it was an almost disapointing weekend as i wanted to show them more. But thats life.
So we started driving to pk to fetch their car. .....(rest to follow)
we drove in our combi, which lost part of the exhaust the previous day. If you drive a combi you will understand that it makes a hell of a sound- and thats with the exhaust attached.
When we hit the tar road, we saw some cars and something lying in the road. Leopard! I dared to go closer. About hundred metres from there i was reminded who pays my wifes salary, so i switched off the engine. The combi stopped too far from the animals, so i switced on again and drove closer again. By now the people were looking at me with that stare. So i switched off again. But by now the leopard got up and left. So my crap was only starting now... So after greeting everyone and sinking into my chair i drove off, but l decided he wants to show off more and after passing many many angry faces, i stopped again. A few tried to talk to me, but i could not hear them as my combi v8 sound was too loud. Next minute l came out from nowhere and sat next to us[ Post made via Mobile Device ]
