Impala

We are extremely lucky to have access to some of Africa’s most beautiful wildlife right on our doorstep. The Kragga Kamma Game Farm lies on the outskirts of the city, in a semi built up area of smallholdings and smaller farms. So we just have to drive 15 mins from the centre of town to be amongst these lovlies… as well as rhino, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, cheetah, and numerous other species. As environmental purists, we find it a little disconcerting seeing them gazing on Kikuyu grass (commonly used for lawns around here) and alien tree species, but it is still great to be able to see them so easily…… and if we want to see them in their natural habitat, the amazing Addo Elephant Park is only an hour away.

    At first I thought there were three, then saw four, but there are five! Beautiful.

    They look as interested in you, as you are in them. What a nice view to be able to see from your doorstep. Hope all is going well for you and your husband.
