With Friday (27th April) and today (Tuesday 1st May) being holidays here in South Africa – Freedom Day and Workers’ Day respectively – it was only fitting that we (my family) ventured out of the city and into the great wilderness.
Between us working, studying, going to school, trying to start businesses, praising and worshipping, etc. we rarely get to spend good quality time together as a family. At the end of each normal day we enjoy a meal (dinner) together and, soon after, everyone retires to their own rooms to complete that presentation, read that last chapter, wrap-up that homework, meditate on that verse, etc. before bed – and the cycle begins the next morning. As such, trips like this are always good for bonding as we’re stuck in the car together for hours and then in the bush for days.
Our destination on this occassion was Legend Gold and Safari Resort in the Waterberg region of the Limpopo province… wow! Spectular views, fresh air, beautiful sunsets, and the opportunity to get real up-close and personal with nature, and family, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Which brings me to my picture for the Weekly Photo Challenge… 3 zebras together. On the second day of our break we played golf on the resort’s ‘Signature’ course and were graced with warthogs and zebras grazing in the fairway. On the other days we also encountered the majestic springboks and antelopes, often in herds grazing together.
