Not everything on The Waterberg Trust Challenge Ride went quite as expected.
Taking photographs on horseback is not always as easy as it looks
What the wildlife thought was beyond us.
No one guessed we would be actually handling reptiles
or riding a spotted animal
It is difficult to take picture of horses cantering – but it felt we were flying
We faced unexpected challenges
along with a bit of precipitation
Although some admitted to getting a little tired
others graciously hid the fact they were exhausted.
Despite the thought of hidden danger
the intrepid wildlife photographers survived
the hippo remained safely in the water
We had time to relax
and read a bit
as did the animals.
Everyone enjoyed being in the African bush,
no one was eaten by a crocodile
and good fun was had by all.
We made it safely through to live another day.
