And everyone huddles in the shade!

These Cheetah have rather full tummies…I hate a heavy meal on hot days…

KadigadiIf you go to Kaligadi take an air conditioned car! It’s really hot there!

Lovely set of pictures. The poor Secretary Bird under the tree with his beak open. Shade such a premium.

I didn’t go . Our daughter, philipa took our car and my camera and went with her friends leaving me with her little car. So no. The only fun I had was driving her little audi A3 around

How lovely for them. What an experience. Inherited your camera and takes lovely pictures. Bless her. An Audi 🙂 you go girl xx

I thought she would need to pray fingers off the steering wheel, but actually not having to worry about the pot holes in and around jhb was much more relaxing. But sure, you can zip around in that little car

True – but she’s gotta pay! I have a Zim registered car, so I won’t have a problem with any she got!

Thanks – my camera though! Pity she didn’t have the new one – imagine the photos! I got a Panasonic FZ1000 and very happy with it
