Elephants.

Posted on Jun 21, 2011 in Bing, Nature, South Africa

Did you know that elephants are very soft in nature? Yeap, those giants are actually like women. They go everywhere together and with family. They have really strong family values. They are very soft hearted and emotional. Our guide tells us that elephants mourn the dead. When their mates die, they would use their feet and rub them. Elephants are also very protective and defensive. They look out for their young. So if you ever see a baby elephant, watch out for the mother! And when you are in a situation like this -where you are crossing the road, but you have half the herd of elephants on one side and the other half on the other side, do NOT drive through. The elephants panic when you put something between them. Wait till they’ve completed crossing the road. We...

Impalas.

The nicest part about going on a real safari trip is that you don’t see just one animal.. or two animals.. or even three of them. You see the whole ging gang! Trust me, every morning they have to gather for morning briefing. Why else would you find like, hundreds of them huddled together? Seriously, it’s like what I used to do in my department when I was working in a bank. Morning huddle at 9am, talking about client values. Like the impalas, for example. They have to be briefed on ways to entertain visitors who are going to come through every day on giant trucks to see them. Must be trained on poses and best moves. Hah. Did you know that impalas tend to move in a group because they will be very vulnerable to predators if they...

Night Safari Picnic.

Posted on Jun 19, 2011 in Bing, Nature, South Africa

We arrived at the Klaserie Nature Reserve in the Kruger National Park in the evening after a long day’s drive. I was eager to go out and not stay in our room, so our guide Jacob took us out for a night safari ride. Sure we saw some nocturnal animals, but more on that later. The highlight was a picnic that Jacob had brought along for us. Woohoo! He stopped the safari truck while we were in the middle of nowhere. We saw impalas hopping around in the dark, and I bet lions and cheetahs were lurking nearby. I freaked out for a moment as Jacob hopped off the vehicle, and proceeded to set up a table with a table cloth, candles, glasses, snacks and drinks. I couldn’t believe it. We were popping beers and snacking on Pringles chips,...
