The Eastern Cape

After our week in Tshabo we spent three days at a backpackers lodge on the coast of the Indian Ocean. We spent the whole weekend under the sun- unwinding and preparing to switch gears for the homestay ahead. The beach was extremely peaceful as we were the only people in sight. We walked the white sandy dunes and saw a spectacular view of the land.

On Saturday we went on a safari game drive! We loaded into open air trucks and headed down the road to the park. We met three elephants who were rescued and fed them. We then met three cheetahs and were able to play with the big cats. It was an unbelievable experience. To be up close to such a fierce and mighty animal was incredible.

We then went on a drive and saw impala, giraffes, warthogs, wildebeests, ostriches and lions. This park is home to 5 white lions, of which there are only 250 in the world.

    I like your new camera. You seem to have mastered it already. I hope the rest of the semester is as exciting as the first half has been. Great experiences and I’m so glad you are writing all about it. Keep up the good work!!

    Here I am in the US going to see The Last Lions (a documentary about lions is Botswana) and you’re seeing with your own two eyes WHITE LIONS. Hope you know it is one of my dreams in life to see white lions. Hope you got to touch the fur behind cheetah’s ears- its the softest in the whole world. Elephants never forget, so they’ll remember my beautiful best friend forever.

    You’re incredible, I miss you, and I LOVE YOU.
