This afternoon we were going to TR as we were supposed to move to Nossob tomorrow. We have four cats at home and the catsitter was a bit nervous about not being able to keep in touch for such a long time. Thus, we wanted to give her a call before moving further away.

We saw a hyena where we had met the four of them before, an ostrich family taking a dust bath

and more cheetahs at Samevloeiing – Lisette’s cubs from 2011 Monica and Hanri. We actually saw them here in 2012 with their sister Corinne as well.
