Suloisempia kuin luulisi nain 20 metrin paasta. Cuter than you'd think, when you're 20 meters away.  Posted by Hello


Pojat poseeraavat kylassa keskella ei mitaan eli Kalaharin aavikkoa. Iloisia ja terveita.. tosin keskimaarainen elinika Botswanan pojille on 30 vuotta:( Boys posing in a village in the middle of nowhere, I mean Kalahari desert. Happy and healthy.. however, the average life expectancy for these Botswana boys is 30 years:( Posted by Hello

Hyvin aikaiseen aamulla, n. klo 6, hiljaista ja kaunista. Very early in the morning, around 6, quiet and beautiful. Posted by Hello


Villielaimista virtahevot ovat ahkerimpia napsimaan ihmisia. Ne juoksee nopeampaa vedessa, kuin ihminen maalla! Of all wild animals, the hippos snack most on humans. It can run faster in water than you on land!  Posted by Hello


Leirinta-alue keskella suistoa, krokotiilit ja virtahevot vedessa ja toisella puolella leijonat, puhvelit jne... harmi vain, ettei nahty kuin virtahepoja - vai olikohan onni.. Our camp site, hippos and crocs on the other side in the water and lions, buffalos on the other side. Too bad we only saw hippos - or was it luck.. Posted by Hello


Virtahevot yllapitavat venereitteja, upeeta, ei mitaan massaturistihommaa. Hippos uphold the boat routes, so cool, not really mass tourist stuff:)  Posted by Hello


Johannes ja Matt, veneen ohjaus on helppoa kun sen osaa. Johannes and Matt make it look easy. Posted by Hello


Okavango Delta Botswanassa. Parin tunnin matka naissa makoro-veneissa ja "punakka rusketus" taattu. Okavango Delta in Botswana, two hour boat ride on Makoro boats and the "redish tan" is guaranteed.  Posted by Hello


Dear colleagues, a phone shop! Posted by Hello


Korkeanpaikan pelon hoitoa, laskeudun n. 70 metria. Treating my fear of hights, abseil of about 70 meters. Posted by Hello

Arvaa missa olen.. Guess where I am... Posted by Hello


Tassa muut porukka Botswana/Zambia kiertueella, Aussit ja Irkut ja yksi norjalainen Zambesin aarella. Here's rest of the group travelling on the same minivan around Botswana and Zambia with me chilling by the Zambesi.  Posted by Hello


Paikalliset kutsuvat Victorian putouksia myos nimella "Savu joka jyrisee". Siella kastuu lapimaraksi, mutta se on vain osa kokemusta:) Vic Falls are also called by "Smoke that thunders". You get totally soaked but it's part of the great experience:) Posted by Hello


Silta Zambian ja Zimbabwen valilla, suosittu benjihyppy paikka. The bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe, popular place for a bunjy jump. Posted by Hello


Victorian putoukset, pari kilometria leveat ja 100 metria korkeat. Kaunein paikka missa olen ollut. The Victoria Falls, couple kilometers wide and 100 meters high, the most beautiful place I've ever been.  Posted by Hello


Valtava Zambesi joki, taynna krokotiileja ja muita kivoja otuksia.  Posted by Hello

Ite kunkku, otin taman kuvan n. metrin paasta auton ikkunan raosta. Ovat sen verran tottuneet turisteihin, ettei jaksanut vilkaista, mutta parempi olla varovainen. Upea naky! The king himself, I put my car window down a bit and got him 1 meter away. They seem to very used to the tourist cars going by but you gotta be very careful. Beautiful! Posted by Hello


Sarvikuono- ja leijonapuisto Johannesburgin lahella on yksi monista puistoista, jotka suojelevat villielaimia, joilla on yha vahemman luonnollista elintilaa. Tassa harvinainen valkoleijonan 9kk vanha pentu. Rhino and lion park close to Johannesburg is one of the many parks in SA that protect wild animals that have less and less natural living area. Here's a rare white lion's 9 months old cub. Posted by Hello


Pikkutiikeri ja leijona ruokalevolla, ei silittaminen hairinnyt tai kiinnostanut. Bengal tiger and lion cubs having a siesta, petting didn't bother or interest them one bit. Posted by Hello


Ihka oikea mustaleopardin pentu sylissa:) Never thought I would hold a black leopard like a baby:) Posted by Hello
