Ingozi on the High Veldt
I’m on safari in South Africa with my Mom!
It’s a good chance to talk and bond and try and sort ourselves out.
We’ve been here for two days so far at the Legend Golf and Safari Park in South Africa. It’s effing cold here, reminds me a bit of being back at school but I’ve had a pretty good time so far.
It’s been wildlife sightings every day. We went to see lions, cheetah, giraffe, impalas, and lots of other really cool animals and I was able to get some great shots of the animals.
It was really scary though because the animals roam free and we got REALLY close to this massive lion. The lion was TEN FEET away, just sitting there!!!. I was scared out of my mind but the safari guide told us to stay very still and not make any noise or any sudden movements so I steeled myself and just avoided looking the lion in the eye.
When the lion got up I think everyone in the safari truck almost collapsed with fright but all the lion did was stretch and then walk off to go drink some water.
I was pretty relieved when we got out of there.
Today is the first day I’ve had internet because the resort where we’re staying is DEEP IN THE BUSH.
As in, you open your door and it’s just bush and lions and elephants and all sorts of alarming creatures and trees and grass and mountains and nothing else.
For someone who really dislikes being outdoors I keep asking myself ‘What am I doing here?’ but it’s a lot of fun too.
Haven’t had any contact with the outside world for almost three days. The phone situation in South Africa sucks big time. You have to register a SIM before you can use it. I am sure this is where Nigeria copied the idea from. Nigeria copy-copy!! Woooooo!! Shame!!!
More updates later and more pictures and video once I’ve edited them. The internet here is a little slow 🙁
All pictures were taken by me because my Mom was too frightened (and cold) to take them herself. ^_^ Heh heh!
*Ingozi means “Danger” in one of the languages here. Not sure if it’s Zulu or Xhosa or something else. I just thought it was funny because it’s so similar to Ngozi. ^_^
