We arrived at Tala Game Reserve in the late afternoon. This private reserve was a little different than the Addo Park. The roads were dirt, and the reserve animals were much more concentrated. Even though it seemed a little like an animal park at times, we loved riding in the small covered 4x4s and searching for wildlife in the woods and on the plains.
We saw wart hogs, impalas, gnus (blue wildebeast), black boks, red boks, white rhinos, Egyptian geese, blue herons (and many other birds), hippos in the pond, giant kingfisher, giraffe, zebra, kudu, monkeys, nyala and other types of antelope/deer.
We returned to the ship, arriving at about 7:30 pm. Mom and I had a drink in the bar and ordered the Silver Wind's room service dinner. Very yummy!
