Photos from Réserve Africaine de Sigean

When my brother came to stay we did some touristy things including a trip to

I’m fascinated by the amazing wildlife we share our world with, but usually find zoos too depressing to enjoy. This was brilliant by comparison. It’s not quite wild natural habitat, but it’s pretty vast and I’d highly recommend it. Also my brother’s knowledge of species and the natural world is scarily good, so he was our tour guide.

Two important lessons I learnt:

  • If you’re going to see some awesome animals, charge your camera. I was only just getting started when mine died.
  • For entertainment, pot belly pigs are on a par with lions, black bears, giraffes and rhinos. They are only beaten by play-fighting Asiatic black bear cubs.

Anyway, here are the few pics I managed to get…

Large and little, Vietnamese potbelly pigs

Watching. You.

    Such beautiful photos. You seem to be so blessed with the lifestyle you have chosen. I often take a peek and read from my desktop during lunch and I really can say I’m quite envious. May your happiness & blogging continue x

      Thank you for such a sweet message. Obviously not every day is full of sunshine and roses (we are human after all) but we are very lucky to be where we are, doing what we do. Shake is great with a camera which helps :) xoxo
