We’re racing down this path right now because down there, the elephants are swimming and we don’t want to miss seeing them! Hello and welcome today from the Kariega Game Reserve. We are doing a game drive here. Melli and Jürgen of the Lifetravellerz-Blog are traveling with me through South Africa. And Joné shows us everything here because she really knows her way around. Although giraffes are not among the “Big Five”, I think they are absolutely amazing animals! We are just looking for the elephants and thought we would take a break. And lo and behold: Taraa… oh dear, it is not over there anymore, now it is in the bush. I was too slow with the camera. But I will show it to you soon, it is surely coming out again. There’s a rustle in the bush! Of course there is the question: When the two lions are lying so close to each other, could one possibly try to steal away the food from the other? This might not be the case here because
the lion that is lying lazily in the shade, is well fed and is just not hungry right now. OK, I was wrong. The lion lives by the motto: there is always room for a little more. Jürgen: Cheers!
Joné: You want some?
Gerhard: Do you have some beer? Joné: I’ve got some Castle, Castle Light and Windhoek. And some wine if you want. Gerhard: I would take Windhoek please.
Jürgen: Melanie goes for the “Savannah”. Gerhard: Now of all times it has to start raining, right when we are getting the bar set up. That is a little unfair, right? When the elephants are swimming, you have to be quick. So now, we are on our way to a dam where the elephants are having their fun. We have to go there quickly and we have to go down steeply. During a game drive you always want to see the big animals, the “Big Five”. But there are also very small, other exciting things to see. Joné: Something very small and yummy! Gerhard: Termites! Joné: I’m just gonna knock and say “hello”. See? – Hellooo! See, there are the termites coming out. These are the soldiers. Gerhard: I take this…? Joné: Yeah! I have just eaten a termite! That is a huge termite hill here and these termites taste like what they find all around and eat themselves. This termite tastes very much like herbs and has an incredible amount of proteins. It doesn’t taste disgusting at all and it doesn’t taste what it looks like at all. We have already found three of the “Big Five”. We have seen the lions, the elephants and the rhinos. However, the buffalos and the leopards are still missing. I have been told that leopards are hard to see and are very well hidden. Even the guides hardly see them. And the buffalos are actually kind of easy to find, usually they are there first. We have been driving around for one and a half hours and there is no buffalo in sight. One should not judge the day before nightfall, because here they are: buffalos! My last tip is not to just look out for the animals during such a safari, but also to have a good time. In a game reserve there are many possibilities to have good time. For example there is a swimming pool and also various leisure activities. If you feel like it, stay with me. I would be happy to see you again. Please leave a “like” and subscribe to my channel to never miss an episode! Tschüs, servus, baba and goodbye!
