  • WHY I VISITED BARKLY EAST[center]A noteworthy grandfather[/center] There used to be a mountain railway (with switch-backs zig-zagging up and down mountain sides) connecting Barkly East with its neighbour Lady Grey, but now it no longer functions.

  • May the memory of Africa be with you, alwaysSunday, 30 October My last full day in Africa… This was a difficult day to get through, far more difficult than I thought it would be. Max and I were up early; it had been a cool night and we Posted by Glichez in World Tour 2016 | Nov 4, 2016
  • RHINOS... Skydiving, and the Namib DesertWednesday, 19 October Today… today the trip changed. Today the glorious group of nine was invaded by nine more people who joined the tour.

  • Back in the SouthAfter my quick stop in London, and another 10 hour flight, I arrived back in the beautiful nation of South Africa for the AIDS 2016 conference. During my 2010 journey, I had barely made my plane to Mozambique after some Posted by mbeymer in The Whole Story | Aug 7, 2016

  • Hazyview to Joburg, 7.7.2016Pozor na to, dnes jsme si přispali! Snídaně je totiž až v 7:30, no nemůžeme ani dospat. Snídaně je tentokrát "na vidličku", vajíčka na dva způsoby, slanina, houby, rajčata, wafle, jogurty, ovoce, tousty, palačinky, no hodně dobré. Počasí je mlhavé a Posted by McCaffreyD in RSA, Zanzibar 2016 | Aug 2, 2016
  • Cintsa, Eastern CapeNot having done a weekend away along the coast for a while we decided on a couple of days in Cintsa before winter arrived (now Chintsa with the new official spelling, but we won't be getting into the politics Posted by Larry's Route in Larry's Route (South Africa) | Aug 1, 2016
  • Day 22The last day is always so hard!!! We started the day with animal checks and the intention to fix a box in Duke & Khan's enclosure, but got sidelined picking up a 200ft hose the elephants managed to drag Posted by grendak in South Africa | Aug 1, 2016
  • Day 21Day 21... my last full day :(. We had today off so we did animal checks then headed off to Mongena. We lounged on chairs by the pool (fully clad in 5 layers of clothing) then had a leisurely lunch Posted by grendak in South Africa | Jul 31, 2016
  • Day 20Somehow Day 20 managed to be my first full feeding and cleaning day while being here. We spent the entire day feeding all of the lions in the night pens, cleaning their enclosure of poop and bones while they were Posted by grendak in South Africa | Jul 30, 2016
  • Day 19We had a ton of stuff to get accomplished in the morning, so we split into three groups. Catherine and I went with Jade to collect rocks to clad the water hole in the cubs new enclosure. On our way Posted by grendak in South Africa | Jul 29, 2016
  • Kruger Park Day, 6.7.2016Budíček je skutečně na 4:30 a přesto, že jsme v Africe, vše běží v rámci naší expedice jako na drátkách a vesměs na čas. Snídaně je spíše rychlovka a vyrážíme k branám Kruger Park, který otevírá snad v 5:30 nebo Posted by McCaffreyD in RSA, Zanzibar 2016 | Jul 29, 2016
  • Day 18Day 18 was a bit odd because bush camp needed our game viewer, so the only vehicle we had was the lion transport vehicle. Three of us would have been okay riding in the cage, but there is a 45 Posted by grendak in South Africa | Jul 28, 2016
  • Day 17Day 17 started with animal and fence checks as usual. It was supposed to be a full feeding day, but Kevin wanted to spend some time with his animals and move the cubs into the new enclosure he had built Posted by grendak in South Africa | Jul 27, 2016
  • Day 16Day 16 began with animal and fence checks as usual, which somehow I wound up shocking myself with 7,000 volts for the first time in 3 years... I suppose it was bound to happen. We then met Kevin in Posted by grendak in South Africa | Jul 26, 2016
  • Panorama route to Hazyview, 5.7.2016Vstáváme jak jinak než brzy, toto opravdu není odpočinková dovolená, hihi. A nebo je to proto, abychom si užili ty krásné východy slunce? Snídaně je vydatná, Kevinovi na cestu ještě zabalím tousty a naberu ovoce. Dnes budeme hodně času trávit Posted by McCaffreyD in RSA, Zanzibar 2016 | Jul 26, 2016
  • Balule Reserve, 4.7.2016Vstáváme v 6:30, jupí. K snídani nám svítí východ slunce, u našeho stanu je zatoulaná nějaká malá antilopa, dobré ráno :) Po rychlé snídani se vypravujeme do "buše" stopovat pěšky zvěř. Jako první analyzujeme sloní trus, stopaři poznají jak je trus Posted by McCaffreyD in RSA, Zanzibar 2016 | Jul 25, 2016
  • Day 15Today began with animal and fence checks as usual, but we spent a bit more time watching the animals because we weren't in any huge hurry. We then worked on the poplar fence. Kevin came and gave us a bit Posted by grendak in South Africa | Jul 25, 2016
  • Day 14Day 14... crazy to think I've already got two weeks down and only one left! Today was our day off at Cullinan. I've already been to Cullinan so I chose to stay home and work on Kevin's bracelet (and Posted by grendak in South Africa | Jul 24, 2016
  • Day 13Day 13 began bright and early for feeding and cleaning. Oddly they decided to scatter feed (throw meat over) most of the animals so I'm not sure why we woke up so early, but whatever. While we were waiting for Posted by grendak in South Africa | Jul 23, 2016
