I wonder if it’s enjoying the peace and beauty of the setting sun.  Is it full from a busy day?  Has it had its evening meal?  Is it in its home bush or still on its way?  Such questions to be contemplated.  I think I’ll just enjoy the scene for a bit.

Yes, it’s foggy and quite cool in South Africa.  Not quite my imagination of what Africa is, but now that I’ve seen it, I see it as a lucky break.  What an incredible setting.  We drove up a very rustic road to around 4000 feet to get to the Leshiba Wilderness, set in a valley in the middle of a ominous mountain range.  The place is home to many wild animals and you don’t have to drive on safari to be in and amongst them.  On this cool and blustery afternoon we simply walked down the road and ran into whatever was there.  Coming around a bend in the road, the view opened up to this field of African bush and there they were.  Of course, as soon as they spotted us, they took off running.  They sure are beautiful in the wild.

In the mornings, just after sunrise, we’d quietly dress and get ourselves onto the open air jeep.  Then off into the African bush to track the white lions of Timbavati.  The preserve we were staying at was deep into helping these rare animals survive on their own in the wild so we would roam the bush with our radio tracking devices tuned to their collars, making sure they were still safe.  There are currently only 9 white lions roaming in the wild and at camp unicorn we were able to track 7 of them.  It was winter there, just coming into spring.  Spacious. Quiet.  Beautiful.  They’re out there.
