Out of Africa

These pictures were taken in a game reserve in South Africa. The first one was taken on the first Tuesday in February, exactly 3 months ago today. Our car had gotten stuck in the mud and if I remember correctly, my mom took this picture while we were trying to get it out. 🙂

This one was taken the day before. Jenna sat on my lap and bottle fed the 2 month old tigers. This is Eva. Her brother, Juno, was fed by my son.

Jenna was not allowed into the 4 month old lion cubs’ enclosure. They were too rough. They were fascinated with her and followed her intently as she skipped along the outside of the fence. My son went inside and promptly got ‘almost-scalped’. The lion cub thought his hair tasted delicious! The ranger realised the cubs needed a distraction so that they wouldn’t playfully attack the boy all the time, so she gave him a pull toy to have a tug-of-war with the cubs.

I just love the following picture. The kids are heaping sand on some ant nests. 🙂

My sister, the boy, and I went on a horse-riding safari, and the little miss muffin stayed behind with her grandparents and had her own pony ride. She was not too impressed – she wanted to go with us. Here is Jenna on Cappuchino:
