Sharing moments in time…

Bontebok by the seashore

We took a quick day trip out to cape point and the cape of good hope with our new friend and guide, Faizel.  He showed us many things and explained much about the history and nature of South Africa.  I thought I’d start out the wildlife part of this trip with a picture of a Bontebok taken just a few hundred yards from the point itself.  As you can see, he was grazing along a pretty spectacular piece of land.

Horns over the Cape

We’re off tomorrow to Kruger Park and the real safari part of the trip.  Hope you enjoy this taste of things to come.  Thanks for a great day Faizel!!
