Game drives..

                                             Addo Elephant National Park was fantastic!.It was the most awesome experience just sitting on our "stoep"with a glass of wine ,while watching Zebra and elephants wander about the bush infront of our chalet.The kids had a swim in the pool...yes,a POOL in the middle of the African bush!Then later ,we enjoyed a beautiful meal ,watching the sun go down .The waiter was funny and chatty and he asked us lots of questions,where we came from etc.Wonderful!.Just before dinner we found a waterhole and watched as Kudu and Zebra came to drink...all while we watched.I was so proud of the kids in this moment as they understood the need for silence+ appreciation at such a moment,and they showed respect in that way to both the animals AND the others gathered there to watch.They are natural born explorers,our children .We also went on a game drive though a smaller game reserve in Port Elizabeth called Kragga Kama.A good place with children as the animals are abundant.
