Today we had a ladies day – Africa style. Myself and four other lady researchers at Lajuma went to the nearby Blouberg Nature Reserve. Sam opted out due to the dangerously high levels of oestrogen in the land rover.
We saw giraffe, blesbok, impala, warthog, baboons, vervet monkeys, squirrels, nyala, sable, gemsbok, zebra, kudu and a giant tortoise. In order to see everything we employed some unusual game viewing measures.
The giraffe and hornbills were very outgoing and I took a lot of nice photos.
We stopped at a big baobab tree which Erin climbed up like a monkey.
And of course on the way home we stopped for ice cream. It wouldn’t be a ladies day without dessert, would it?
