We are heading off to Kruger National Park today to warm up after the cold Jo’burg weather started to set in last week.  To get back into the safari spirit (warm up – ha ha), we decided to head to the local Rhino & Lion Park for some wildlife spotting on a smaller scale.  We packed the car with snacks and invited Waldu’s nephew, Henric, along for the day.

We were not disappointed…rhinos right next to the car as soon as we drove in the gate, lions and lioness, cheetahs surrounding the car (not to eat us of course), wild dogs napping next to us, a snake show, vultures, lots of boks, zebra and then there was adorable animal crèche with South African baby animals as well as jaguars and tigers (Simon, tigers in Africa!).
