In 2014 my sister, Karin, brother, Hawie, sister in law, Lindsay and I went to Pilanesberg  Game Reserve. It is close to Sun City in the North West Province.

Lindsay is American and we wanted to introduce her to South Africa.

We stayed in Safari Tents at the Manyane Camp.

Rooibokke was in the camp with us. We tried to photograph them at night.

The first evening we arrived there there was a storm. We had to braai indoors and eat our potato salad and meat in the tent. 

The next morning Karin and I went for a drive and we saw wildebeest and a jackal.

During our morning drive an elephant came to say hello.

If an elephant lifts his trunk it’s time to make a plan to get out of his way.

After that visit from the elephant we were ready for breakfast at our tents. We were busy preparing when other visitors came along. Pumba’s family. In Afrikaans we call them Vlakvarke (Warthog in English)
