My Time Capsule: South Africa: a Stylish Baboon & My Dream Safari


South Africa: a Stylish Baboon & My Dream Safari

Palace of  the Lost City
Sun City is South Africa’s premier holiday resort,  known as Africa’s Kingdom of Pleasure. There are 4 hotels in the resort and Palace of the Lost City is the most luxurious of all. You can find many activities in this resort. Stayed there for 3 days was not enough for me to explore the whole area.

The Crystal Court restaurant serves heavenly breakfast
The room and bathroom is very spacious with exotic interior. What I found funny was the sign on the glass door to the patio. It says "Please keep door closed to prevent monkeys from entering". Apparently it's a common case in that hotel. The guest forgot to lock the patio sliding doors then some baboons broke in and stole their food and belonging. I even heard the story about a lady who lost her designer bag. Geesh ! I think the baboon has read too many fashion magazines, she became a stylish baboon.

I joined the game safari to Pilansberg National Park that depart at 6 o'clock in the morning. It's third largest game reserve in South Africa and has a dramatic landscape that supports a wide variety of plants, animals and birds.
I was lucky enough to see 3 from the famous Big 5 of south Africa (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino). Since I was a kid I had always dreamt about doing safari in Africa. So I was really happy to be able to meet those beautiful creatures.
