Mark and Lisa's picture archive Part VI -Southern Africa

We just spent a month in Southern Africa visiting South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Here are a few of the pictures.

 

Lisa and Mark on a Harbour tour in Mossel Bay, South Africa.


 

 

A Crocodile farm in George.


 

 

Lisa with an elephant at an elephant sanctuary outside Kynsna, South Africa. The 3 elephants who live in the sanctuary- Harry, Sally and Duma - were saved from being culled by game authorities at Kruger National Park. They were rescued and brought to an area outside of Knysna to live. The elephants earn they keep by allowing people to visit them.

 

 

This is how close we got to the elephants.

 

 

Cabin at Tsitsikama National Park on the Garden Route.

Our favourite fruit juice is Ceres Fruit Juices from South Africa. We took an amazing factory tour of the Ceres Fruit Growers and Ceres Fruit Juices Factory. We got to drink all sorts of wonderful flavours and see the incredible production line.
