South Africa is still on my mind… and in my photo albums! Today, I wanted to share with you the most amazing experience of the trip: our safari! Safari means long journey in Swahili and even though we were there for two days only, it felt very long… In a good way! We did two trips with the safari jeep and a guide and we also went quad biking twice! Amazing is probably the word I’d use to describe what we’ve seen…

The title is a little inside joke we had in the Aquila Game Reserve on our first day. I’ll never forget that, like I’ll never forget all the good things and memories we had there! Speaking of rhinos, have you heard? Cruel people all over the world are killing the poor things for their horns because it’s worth lots of money. The thing is, they actually don’t really kill them… They cut off the horn and leave them dying out there. Our game reserve has them on watch 24/7 because two of them got killed recently. Very shocking to hear and touching to see how those people actually care about their animals. As you can see, I’ve seen a lot of beautiful creatures and I definitely want to go back to Africa to explore some more!

    Ouhh! Gij doet echt leuke dingen e!
    Da moet zo leuk zijn om zo’n wilde dieren in’t echt te zien , behalve als ze aanvallen :P
    & ja.. dierenmishandeling is wel een enorm minder punt :s ‘k zeg altijd dat ze zo’n dingen bij die mensen zelf ook is moeten doen dan (maja da zal wel nooit gebeuren)
    Anyways ‘k zou ook wel is safari willen doen! ooit :P
