The adventure continues. Here are a few pics from the Lion and Cheetah Park.
Within touching distance of these great creatures, we held our breath when one of the females decided to move to a cooler spot, closer to our car! Everyone was hissing at me to close my window, but I had to capture her relaxing, curled like a kitten.
Meet Tommy. He’s over 300 years old and has be the longest resident at the park.
We were driving around the game park, hoping to catch a glimpse of just one giraffe and instead we’re blessed with a view of four giraffe, zebras, Impala, wild boar and an ostrich.
Hidden in the bush next to the car were two zebra. I screeched, “Stop! Stop the car!”
Meanwhile, just ahead on the dirt road was a herd of buffalo. Everyone else could see the buffalo but no-one had noticed the zebra by my window!
We were always told to be wary of the buffalo. I don’t know how true this is but, if you see one separating from the herd, move away. It’s usually the alpha telling the rest to stampede or attack!
I hope you liked our trip to the Lion and Cheetah Park. Unfortunately the four resident cheetah were poisoned a few years ago and some of the other animals had died from old age. I hope they do get a chance to replace them as the animals are very well looked after in their own large enclosures where there is less of a chance of them being hunted and killed. Freedom is always the best option, but in a world where few things are preserved and respected, maybe it’s better for them to be in a game park.
