Everybody needs a holiday!

Hippo, Moremi, Botswana

My response to Sadje’s What do you see? picture prompt on Monday, suggested to me that it might be nice for us all to hop on the tour bus and take a little virtual safari together to recharge our batteries. Also, my right shoulder is in particular need of a little rest from too much typing, so let’s just feast our eyes and listen to the sounds of nature….

Now you see me… Giraffes can disappear into the bush in a wink of an eye – this one was just outside Moremi Wildlife Park in Botswana – not all game is inside the Park!
Addo Elephant Park, Eastern Cape, South Africa – yes, he was that close!
A rather splendid stork from a boat trip on the edge of the Okavango Delta, Botswana
Vervet Monkey ‘traffic warden’ outside our accommodation at the Island Safari Lodge, Maun, Botswana – is this why little monkey characters, Fingers and Toti appear in my novels?

Have a lovely peaceful weekend, my friends!

  1. So cool! I liked being able to listen to the sounds while reading through the post. It made it seem like I was there! The elephant is so pretty! I’ve always wanted an elephant as a pet. lol
