This game reserve is the biggest nature reserve in Africa and is in the north east of the country. Established at the end of the 1800's by the, then president, of the Transvaal, Paul Kruger, it was intended for the protection of the wild life in the area, well done Paul. It's big, about 20 000 square kilometers, and is home to a huge variety of plants and animals including the Big Five, the African Lion, the African Elephant, the African Leopard, the Cape Buffalo and the Rhinoceros, all very scary animals that will kill you at the drop of a hat. I'll be careful to keep my hat on :).
I will be taking lots of photographs of the preparation and presentation as well as everyone enjoying their time together to post here when I'm ready but for now I've had to get images from the net. Archibald and Minnie, my dogs, will be staying with my sister Toni for the weekend while Tiny, Olive and my fish will be looked after by one of my neighbors daughters, they will be fine I'm sure.
Shelley, Jason and I will leave here at about 5 am on Wednesday morning and take a leisurely drive of about 6 hours, stopping on the way for breakfast in one of the small towns and also to take photographs along the way. I must tell you that this has come at exactly the right time, I really need this. Thank you Lord, you always know what I need and when to bring it about.
Writing this post has been a tremendous blessing for me and I look forward to telling you all about what it's been llike when I eventually do get back.
Blessings in the name of Jesus to all of you, Geoff.
