I have been watching a few live cams for the past year and I had yet to see a cheetah. Tonight my friends was a gooooooooooood drive for me! Not only did Jan and Alex find ONE cheetah.....TWO!!! How exciting!!!
Not only did I see the cheetah, I got to share that experience with some of the forum rats whom I have been getting to know over the past week! I have quickly become one myself! lol
Anyhow...thank you so very much to Jan, Alex and Marco for the incredible drive!

Well I think that Pieter's love of elephants has inherently rubbed off on me. I had been fascinated before but since watching the drives over the past few months, I seem to have elephantitus LOL *ba dum dum chhhh* Yes always the comedian.
I think it all started in grade 5. My teacher had gone to Africa on vacation and brought us all back a hand carved figure of an African animal. Mine happened to be an elephant. Over the years I have… Continue

So the glorious sun rises... its glowing radiance creeps over the land like a golden mist, touching everything and illuminating it. The sounds of the morning are quiet at first. As the sun marks a path into the sky, all the birds burst forth with a sound that rings through the savanah. Each one calling and singing as if the sun were its mate and they the true love. Clouds hanging low and misty are pushed aside by the suns rays like the parting of the… Continue
