Lions and tigers &etc oh my!

My somewhat adventurous weekend ended with a truly African interlude: a nature reserve by the Cradle of Humankkind. It was ridicuawesome. Basically for $10 you can just drive around all these different areas where there are various wild animals. Importantly, there are no fences, so it’s just you (in the car) and them (lazily sleeping 50 feet away because they’re used to visitors and its the height of the day but STILL). Lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, ostriches, wild boar, kudu, other bizarre antelope like things. There were some rhinos somewhere but I couldn’t find them. This has gotten me super excited for Kruger, which I’m supposed to go to in a week and a half with some people from work.
