I am starting to realize that the incredible sights of each day are very regular. In terms of the amount of animals seen, this was one of our worst trips, but there was some moments. At one point, after a dry spell for 45 minutes or so, a whole herd of elephants, both big and small, crossed the road all around us; many of them were within reaching distance as we passed. Once the crossed, they began to throw dust all over themselves, in order to protect from parasites. After the morning drive, we visited the hoedspruit endangered species center. The main focus of this place was to breed both regular and king cheetahs, and release them back into the wild. I had never seen a cheetah before, and, let's me tell you, they are magnificent creatures. We learned a lot about their behaviors and actions as well. In the center they also housed many rescued animals, such as rhinos who's horns were cut off by poachers, exposing the inside of their nasal cavity. There were also some lions who had been abandoned a circus in Portugal. Although the backstories of these animals were extremely saddening, it was very touching to see them rehabilitated and healthy again. It really gives an appreciation for how delicate living beings really are, and how every single person is responsible for the lives of others. To think that these incredible creatures could be gone so soon is insane. Whether it is recycling, or even planting trees, we all need to do our part. We leave tomorrow afternoon, but there is still one more drive before then. I will write from Dubai.
