My favourite species was the cheetah. It is a beautiful and elegant creature.
Are you enjoying your camp accommodation?
There are a few holes in the tent, so lizars came visit us a few times. But all in all it is reallz ok. We would live in the nature and it is nature.
How does South Africa differ from your home country?
South Africa differ a lot to Germany. It is much warmer, there is more life in the nature and the people are sometimes more friendly, but also sometimes more intrusive. Nevertheless it is a great country.
