South Africa... wildlife and magic



This is just a list but one I've been meaning to put up for a year. We went to South Africa last year and over the course of 2 weeks here's a list of wildlife we saw (including flightless birds). What a truly extraordinary country... I can't imagine a better place for children to discover nature. Whether it's sitting 6 feet away from a lion or seeing whales in the ocean, there is magic every day and the miracle of this planet surrounds you every single moment.
