Travel Photo Thursday June 9th:

It's Travel Photo Thursday and here's a great photo from my recent trip to Namibia and Botswana.

" Wow! "  Ozzy  is screeching! "You've come back. Great to see you again mate ! Wait 'til I I go tell the chicks!"
The male ostrich at Airport Game Lodge, Johannesburg, South Africa greets me on my first night back there after a long flight from New Zealand. A very convenient, reasonably priced, clean and very quiet motel type lodge 10 minutes complimentary shuttle drive from Oliver Tambo Airport. Great accommodation for your first introduction to South Africa as there is a herd of springbok, a pair of ostriches, and other small game quietly grazing the large grounds.


 

The other guys posting for Travel Photo Thursday have great pics up. Check them all out from here at Nancie's Budget Travellers Sandbox.

So that's where you've been. Hadn't heard from you in so long, I thought you fell off the face of the earth!
Sounds like a fantastic trip, chock full of wildlife. Wish I'd have been there. Thanks for sharing.

Cool one of the ostrich!

I really like that first shot. However, I have an unhealthy fear of ostriches...something about a bird that size just scares me.
