And in August we saw….

This is long long overdue. Here come my excuses…1. busy 2. busy 3. still busy.

But things are quieting down a bit now.

So lets reflect back. In August (whoah this is overdue!) my dad came to visit us which was awesome! He took Sam and I to a game reserve outside of Kruger called Tshukudu. The name means rhino. We went on daily bush walks and game drives in a big 5 private reserve with our guide, Shadrack.

We also had a day in Kruger National Park and a day at Blyde River Canyon.

Here are some photos:

One of the semi-tame cheetahs made a kill and we watched her eat from 2 meters away.

  1. Wow. Those are some amazing pictures! I love the over educated water spigot! OMG! Petting a cheetah! What does semi-tame mean in reference to a cheetah? Does that mean petting but no snuggling?

  2. As usual all the Lucks enjoy your news. We remain immensely proud of you and all you are accomplishing! Love to you both

  3. Loved the pictures. You guys are real pros!
