Bushbuck up close and personal, they come close enough to be fed but not close enough to be touched, they had a little one with them which was still suckling, was awesome to be part of nature.

One of the Nyala's that came to visit, they come daily for feeding as well as feeding wild, they are still reasonably skittish so you have to approach them with caution and be wary as they are still wild.

Sun City, South Africa Large casino complex in the middle of no where. Expensive, have to pay to park, pay entrance to get into each section of the resort, pay for a map to the resort, not much fun unless you have a lot of money.
