Mokolodi Nature Reserve

Mokolodi Nature Reserve

I love wildlife and I often miss it while living in Cape Town. When holidaying in Botswana, we took a trip out to Mokolodi Nature Reserve, just outside Gaborone. We went for a game drive but also to see their sanctuary, which looks after injured animals, and reptile section. The bush was very thick, so saw very little on the drive but managed a few impala, warthog, a mother and young Giraffe as well as many butterflies which were in the thousands all over the city. The reptile and sanctuary was pretty exciting. On the bird side, there was a very large Lappet-faced vulture, a couple of white-backed vultures (I think), a yellow-billed kite, an eagle owl, a Martial Eagle and I think a Barn Owl. Repiles were: a few spitting cobras, an African Rock Python, some fat Puff Adders and a...
Montagu

Montagu

A recent trip to Prince Albert to us through Montagu.  Nice and small little town with a couple of interesting restaurants and sights, including a small open water bird area.  We stayed at Airlies Guesthouse which is a great little place with two very friendly hosts. It also has a homemade beer brewery next door with delicious beer. It was just after heavy rains and some of the road had washed away.  Emergency crew were looking for a woman who was washed away in her car but I believe the results weren’t...

2 Oceans Aquarium

Franschhoek Gemsbok and an Impala

Franschhoek Gemsbok and an Impala

My first trip to Franschhoek was spent at Franschhoek Country Cottages.  They have this small plot of land with a watering hole and these animals.  It was really special having wild animals so close.  The zebras were very calm and even calm within centimetres of me. The wildebeest and impala were very aware of me and often moving away even when they could only just see me. The gemsbok were indifferent and were happy as long as they were eating. All in all, it was pretty awesome. Check out the rest: Franschhoek Wine Tasting Zebras...
