Boy Bands, Internet and 42 Elephants...

Hey guys,

Right, it seems the internet over here is fairly crap, and hard to come by. We haven't had access until yesterday, and we wrote the biggest post ever, and it didn't publish it...so sorry about the delay in getting news to you but I am sure you can all understand thats its not so westernised in some areas over here.

Now to catch you up on our news...

Way too much to type but will give you some highlights.

We travelled down through Botswana which was fantastic. Did a river cruise where we saw 42 elephants drinking from the river all at once - most of which were babies!

Did a game drive through Chobe National Park where we got our first taste of the wildlife over here. Buffalo, Elephants etc. It was great!

We went to Blyde river canyon which was beautiful! On the way back to the truck we asked some nicely dressed African men if I could have my photo taken with them...turns out they are a prominant African Boy Band and they made Stu and I dance with them as part of their Music Video...Stu drew the line at playing leg guitar. Will let you know their name when we write it down so you can google them :o)

Passed over the South African Boarder and have spent the last 3 nights in Kruger National Park. It was the highlight of the tour so far! We managed to see the big 5!!! A rare thing! Which is Rhino, Elephant, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard! We saw the Leopard last night and it was amazing! It came about 10 metres away from our truck and we managed to get heaps of photos and film footage of it.

We are now on our way to Swaziland, where we will spend 2 nights before heading back up to Pretoria.

Hope all is well with everyone. Thanks heaps and heaps for checking the house Pam.

Love to all.

Marcelle and Stu
