Day 7


We came upon an ostrich nest today and Mike found out for himself just how strong these things really are: he stood on top of them. It has been a fascinating journey in Africa and everyone is having a wonderful time. We are enjoying the experience of pepper ticks, but that is another story all together.

We are seeing lots of animals and have viewed the Big 5, except for the leopard. (The Big 5 is a trophy group of the most magnificent of Africa's dangerous game. It is very prestigious to hunt this grouping, which includes: lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and cape buffalo.)

Late in the day, Kurt the cameraman got the privilege of taking a guinea fowl for the cooking pot. It was a beautiful bird and very nice to see up close.
