Overnight Safari

To bring our trip to a close, the students went on an overnight safari during their last weekend in South Africa. After we arrived at Fairy Glen Private Game Reserve, we sandwiched a nature walk between lunch and dinner. The following morning, we went on a safari and saw most of the animals in The Big 5. The following pictures captured by Owen Hey chronicle our experience traveling around the game reserve. Thumb_IMG_0650_1024

Caption: Unfortunately, this rhinoceros was poached a few years ago. The poacher(s) sought the animal's horn and cut too deeply into the horn's growth plate for it to ever grow back. The horn is very valuable overseas. Both rhinos survived their poaching, though they experience negative emotional reactions to their poaching. Thumb_IMG_0696_1024
