I know I completely missed Monday, my bad! But I did not forget about you! Today I will be doing a little recap of our weekend. What a fun weekend! We did one thing both days! Yes ONE thing! You must be thinking how boring that is! Indeed NOT....
Saturday morning we slept in a bit, and after a whole week of only going to bed after 11:30pm I think I deserved that 10 am sleep! So please don't judge me! :)
We got dressed, hopped in the Mo-Landy (yes we named our Defender) and off we went to the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve. I always love going there! It's close by and you know you will at least always see 1 of the Big 5!
I must admit the Entrance Fee is a bit steep, but they have to pay the bills some how. While driving we saw multiple antelopes, from Impala, Springbok, Oryx, Black Wildebeest, Ostriches, Elands, Buffalo (Big 5 = tick), Wild dogs, White Lions (they just fed them as we arrived), Zebra and the list goes on and on.
But the thing I was most excited about was the fact that I was FINALLY going to play with the Lion Cubs!
You pay R30 pp and you can play with them for 5 min. Dream come true! They are so cute. They had 2 camps, one camp had White Lion Cubs that was 4 months old and the other camp had 3 Brown Lion Cubs and 1 White Lion Cub that was 7 months old. We decided to go into the bigger cubs camp.
They are so cute, although they were very lazy when we got there. I just wanted to stay there and never leave. Those 5 min flew by and I was not very happy when the guy told us time up. Boooo!
Anyway, while driving taking photo's of the animals, all Cedric could hear was me moaning "Baby I need a better camera, I can hardly zoom with my "mik en druk"! So he took the camera from me thinking I was exaggerating. Surprise!!! I was not! So off we went to Dion Wired and I GOT MY CAMERA! What a great deal! We bought the Nikon D3100 which was on special. It included the camera, a 18-50mm lens, 55-200mm lens, Binoculars, Adobe Photoshop Kit and a Bird Book.

I must say, while I'm still busy trying to figure out what Aperture and Shutter speed means, I'm slowly getting the hang of my new beauty!
