So we’re just getting ready. We’re going to go out on our first game drive? Is that what it’s called? And you see they do have a good eyesight because she’s just looking around, checking if there is any giraffe or anything around It’s not a white rhino. They are gray in color. And their horns are composed of keratin like our fingernails. There is no bone there. So this is two young males. They’re not full grown. They’re still too young. They keep on feeding. In the morning, they keep on feeding, but they go and drink water in the day. Then imagine this size, tells size of this paw So I’m at the back. if you look is like ‘3’ ‘m’ it’s like ‘M’ or ‘W’ as you see here. So, and here just little bit and also the toes it was four. But they are five. So they are five of them in their higher point If he’s grabbing something So that’s why on the floor it shows four So see four, and then one you’re not going to see on the ground. So that’s the front one, and that’s the back leg. So it’s a male leopard. It was going that way. So, any questions?[all together] Where is he now?Now he is going that way Pardon?Obviously last night?No, early this one. Nothing evidence that it was walked on top here And it’s still fresh And if you take a look, there is a nocturnal bird. They walked. And even us, we did drive yesterday here last night. But if you look at these tracks, they’re still fresh. Ok, and no nails on the leopards. Nothing. Just like this. They are broken spots. So the animals that got spots are cheetahs. Cheeaths, they do have spots. So, they’re active during the day and during the night. But they are most successful during the night. During the day sometimes. But during the night, they’re most successful. And she gives birth to one baby – one to three babies at a time, but normally we just see leopards with two cubs all the time. So when they babies are born they are pink in color, or grayish in color. So we have a few elephants, but some of them are pink in color. Is anybody scared? NoHeyLook, at the ones back there. How cute! See, they’re everywhere. Good morning! Today is our first official day here in the camp. John is laying down there, relaxing. It’s already 10 am. I know I didn’t actually check in today. But we leave really early in the mornings to just drive out. They leave at like 6 in the morning or something. We have like a really tiny, quick breakfast with coffee or something, with some scones. And then we go out and see the sunrise and see all the animals from there. And then we were out there for a couple of hours. And we come back and have breakfast, have lunch, and then we go out again, around 3:30? And then, we see the sunset there and we come back when it’s pretty much after sunset. And we’re out there for a little bit at night, like you saw yesterday. But it’s really hard to see anything at night. But I just wanted to check in because I probably won’t check in too much. It’s really, really relaxing here and I really like it. And I tell John, I feel very very like grateful for being here. Like it doesn’t seem real like there are so many beautiful things to see And so many animals we’ve seen. as you’ve probably seen. I actually just – I’m going to go ahead There’s a little shop, and I’m going to put my camera there now to charge. So that’s why I wanted to check in before I put it away. And use the Wifi because there’s no Wifi here unless it’s on the little hut. Oh, and John wanted me to also mention that tonight we’re going to spend the night in the treehouse. Which is an actual treehouse that they have here. And if you want to stay in it for the night, you just have to tell them. And if it’s available, then you can go and stay. And apparently he had already organized it with like the travel- (listens) It’s a way from the main camp it’s not on this camp We actually passed by it today or yesterday.. I can’t remember. It’s just up in a tree and you stay there overnight, and they pick you up in the morning before the morning drive. And yeah! So that’s what we’re going to do today. Tonight, we’ll just get a couple of our things and then stay there. We just had lunch and I just wanted to go and see if I can record. Some monkeys are jumping on the hammock by the pool. So let me show you guys, if I can get a video for you. ‘Cause I think it’s hilarious. Go back, monkey. Hi there! This one is literally right behind me. The other one was a distraction. It actually wants to take my stuff. Hi! The monkeys are chasing us. We just came to the bar, And now they’re here. John called me over Are you scratching yourself? Omg! They’re going crazy! Oh, there’s a ton of them right in my shot right now. Hey! Aw, they’re scratching the little one. There’s a kudu! Where? There it goes. Definitely bumpier back here Duck your heads! Especially in the back. We’re in the back. A little bit bumpier back – Don’t! – I’m not falling for that. It’s very nice. Amarula cream. Yeah, very much nice. So to be together like this is just for more eyes and ears. Just helping each other. The giraffe, they do have a long tongue. It is 45 cm long. So you see that white letter “M” behind their bum? That one stands for “McDonald”. The only time an impala is upside down that M becomes the “Whimpy”. Stands for “Whimpy”. Look how fast they are. They’re all taking turns going too. It’s like doing hurdles. On the tree, this mark. The elephants, they were just rubbing themselves there. So sometimes when you look very carefully there you can just spot some ticks. stuck on that mark. Elephants trying to take off the parasites on their body. This is where the lions were. No lions this time? Look! There’s the treehouse! Oh, yeah! That’s where you guys are spending the night? I guess.. In there?! Yeah You’re going to freeze![while reading info card bought at shop]
Ask “how many liters does it hold in it’s trunk?”How many liters does it hold? in it’s trunk? Yeah, maybe.. It’s 4. So you see when they take the grass, they just shake the sand. They take the sand away. Trying to take it off If they eat that sand they’ll regret that badly. She has been in the water. She has been in the water. Got her socks on. John, that was close. Elephants, they don’t see. So they keep on coming because they don’t see anything. They keep on coming. They don’t see you. They don’t see you that you’re close. Are you ok in the back? Yeah! It’s a rattlesnake. It looks like a snake, but it’s not. What is it? It’s snakeskin. Snakeskin. What snake is it? It’s a boomslang. A tree snake, in other words. It’s a “Wilson”. The hyenas, they do have a stronger smell than other animals. they just grind the bones because they’re scavengers.
They normally follow the leopards and lions behind to scavenge from them. We just stopped for the break. Just wanna show you. Find anything? I found a – some animal with a Nike shoe on. That’s about it. You. For you, ma’am? (with my mouth full)
Gin and tonic. Oh, yeah! Just saw it run. There you go, You saw your animal. Too bad my camera is too dark right now. Thank you! Not bad. Hey! (in Spanish) Tomé.
(translation) I drank.Oh, thank you! Cheers! Cheers! hyena. No. Which one? This one here? Yeah. It’s a bird. No. This one. That one. That’s a lion. This one. It’s a small zebra. A lion, they’ve got a tusk. It looks like a horse one. Yeah, it’s domestic. I reckon it’s the same one. It’s just on a big loop. Still on a mission. Is that the same one? Yeah! One is laying down there.
