We spent the last two days in a walking camp in the Karoo, about three hours East of Cape Town. There we took long walks in hot and sunny weather, sat around a camp fire at night and watched lots of animals. Now we are recovering in a luxury campsite with running water and an excellent kitchen. We have seen elephants, lions, giraffes, rhinoceros, cheetah, many different antelopes and a large assortment of other wildlife. When walking we “stumbled” across cheetahs and rhinos, but interestingly, it is easier to get close when in the jeep. The elephant in the picture was about 2m, the giraffe 3m from my seat.
