Safari!!!

Dumelang Ditsala! (Hello Friends!)

It’s been a fun week of safari adventures in Kasane with my dad. I haven’t had time to write up a proper post, but wanted to share some of my pictures for those of you not on Facebook. I will do my best to write something up in the near future, but don’t want to take the time while I am on vacation with my dad.

Hugs!

    These photos are fantastic! That tree is amazing and all I can think about is what the insects look like there. Do you have any photos of them as well? Also, your dad reminds me Mel Brooks and it’s making me smile because I can see the similar features in you! Both of you look great. Glad you’re having fun 🙂

    • Hey Dan! You crack me up! The bugs really aren’t as crazy as they could be. During the summer rainy season there are mosquitoes. There are also quite a few beetles, including dung beetles, which I think I have shared some pictures of. There are also these insects that look like little robots that eat the crops. There are several types of spiders, but most are harmless. So for the most part it is not as bad as I had expected.
