Explorer Duck goes wild

Explorer Duck was lucky enough to get an invite to travel in Jo’s backpack (WanderWithJo.com) to South Africa. After much reassurance that the lions had plenty to eat in the form of Impalas, and would not be interested in a small yellow duck that would be as tasty as dental floss in comparison, Explorer Duck hopped in.


Zebra Hills Safari Lodge is set within the 23,000ha Zululand Rhino Reserve and is literally heaving with Big Game and birds. The twice daily safari happened as the sun rose, and again as it went down. While Explorer Duck hid, Jo captured this close up with the King of Cats.

“No, they’re brown.”

After a few days on safari, they headed for Cape Town and Table Mountain, the V&A Water Front, Boulder Beach to see the penguins & finally World of Birds, where Explorer Duck was much more at home with his feathered friends.
