Wow what wonderful sightings, surpriseh!

The Biyamiti road always offers something exciting, the last time I traveled on the road, I got stopped in a roadblock that was manned by a herd of around 70 elephant. My mother, well, she suffers from elephantscanbescaryanimals phobia and bribed me with a venison-pie and gravy at Tshokwane to turn around :lol:
