Today was totally bakgat (pronounced buck-ghut) that means cool or awesome in Afrikaans. We started with a ferry ride across the Knsyna Lagoon to Featherbed Nature Reserve. We rode Unimogs up to the top of the cliff and then hiked back down, stopping for some breathtaking views! Once back at the Pezula resort I was able to squeeze in a quick horseback ride around the parts of the resort. This was not part of the adventure but it was one of many activities the resort offered and i just had to do it.
Then it was finally time to meet one of the big 5. Not only did we get to see elephants we got to feed them and then walk in a field with them and touch them.
It really was just amazing to be walking around freely with these big animals. We then walked just a few steps to enjoy our wonderful dinner.
Tomorrow we say good bye to Knysna and head to the main event â€“ Kapama Game Reserve. The game drive begins the moment we drive out of the airport. I cannot wait to see what animals we will catch a glimpse of!
