I thought I’d take you behind the scenes to give you feel for what it’s like on safari with Taraji Blue. The photos supplied here have not been modified. Instead, they aim to give you a feel for what it is like on safari.
Well, naturally we try and get up close and personal with the animals…but we also need to respect boundaries and consider the safety and comfort of the wildlife – and ourselves!
After a hard day’s wildlife spotting we find a nice spot for a picnic…
When the heat of the day hits there is only one thing for it – a nice relax in a shady spot
In the late afternoon we will head out there again and see what we can see. We’re lucky to find these wee hyenas, which had taken quite a fancy to munching on the tyres of (thankfully) other cars. (not sure how I would explain that to our car rental company otherwise!)
And, of course, there is the obligatory sundowner at the end of the day, celebrating the sights we’ve seen in the shadow of the braai.
