Overland Safari 2 – Botswana

5.30am and this lovely creature crossed the road on our way to Chobe NP

The Botswana Diary …

Day 15: Waking at 5.30am, we jumped on a safari 4×4 and drove into Chobe National Park. The game drive however had started well before we entered the gates. Just as the sun was coming up we were lucky to see some beautiful elephants on the side of the main road. By 6am we had entered the gates and spent the next 3.5 hours in hope of seeing more cats. However it wasn’t to be. Not that we are complaining as there were plenty of hippos in Chobe River, so many impala and warthog, banded mongoose, chapma baboons, ground squirrels, giraffe, crocodiles, buffalo and plenty of different bird species. At this point everyone was probably too spoilt because although this is a huge amount of wildlife in one morning, we had really hoped to see Lions or Leopards (N.B there are no rhinos in Chobe NP).

Overland Safari 1 – Tanzania

These gorgeous kids greeted us as we arrived at our first campsite in Tanzania...

THE TANZANIAN DIARY….

Day 20: Early start this morning, we departed at 4.30am en route back to Kigale where we said goodbye to some of the crew who had only joined us for the Gorilla Trek. We then had a full day driving and crossed the border and by late afternoon we were in Tanzania. Overnight was spent in Sayari Guest House. We have no idea where we got the energy from but even after such an early start, the crew were up for a few drinks and then someone started us off with Karaoke… Singing The Gambler. Many others were keen to take the microphone after that…

RV Trip USA – San Diego Zoo

Javan Rhinos are rare. Pete was really excited to see them in the flesh

San Diego Zoo is renowned as one of the best zoos in the world. Pete had always wanted to visit this place so we got back on the road and headed down from LA to San Diego. San Diego is extremely close to the Mexican border and is about two hours from LA.
This zoo really is an incredible place and deserves it first class status. It has a terrific range of animals (4000 or s0), like giant pandas, Indian rhinos and polar bears to name a few and most of the exhibits in which the animals are displayed are fantastic. Both enriching/stimulating for the animals and pleasant to look at for the visitor.
