Huge Praying Mantis

By in Travel No Comments

Whooo hoo….. As we came around a bend on the road this afternoon, there it was! A Huge Praying Mantis, Scientific name: Mantodea) about 200 mm from head to tail!!

Been looking for one for quite some time. Leapt off the vehicle and hit the dirt, a dusty affair! Got to get a picture! What a beauty! When threatened, the mantis stands tall and spread their forelegs which make them seem larger and more threatening. Lovely!

February in South Africa!

It must be February in South Africa…. the Safari from Johannesburg, the ambiance, the smells, the sounds. Beautiful African sun, softly settling in for the night. A Black-backed Jackal’s call in a distance, camp fires being lit. Exquisite!

It was overcast and drizzling a bit today as we left for a tour of Pretoria. No wind though with the temperature in the early 20’s. We visited the Voortrekker Monument, downtown Pretoria, The Union Buildings (office of the president of South Africa) rounding off the tour with a lovely Cappuccino at Huckleberry’s garden restaurant before saying goodbye to our guests from Ireland after their three-week stay in South Africa. Thank you so much for visiting South Africa! Looking forward to seeing you next year.

Our day trip from Pretoria to the Cradle of Human Kind offered our guests from the USA a fantastic outing prior to departing for OR Tambo airport to catch an early evening flight on Lufthansa.
