My 1st Mini African Safari at Lion Park here in Joburg

Hi Everyone, well its been about 5 weeks I am living here in South Africa and enjoying it very much.  I found out our furniture will arrive end of June so we will be able to move into our new home. I am so looking foward to setting up my new studio. 

On Sunday, we decided to take a drive out to the Lion Park north of Johannes burg. It was a lovely drive and sunny winter day here.  The weather has gotten somewhat colder. Even went down to 0 that night. 

The park was stunning. It was beautiful to see the rolling golden African plains, the beautiful different trees and the wonderful ainmals grazing.  The scenery is everything I thought it would be. Except for the elephants.  We also drove with our car thru the Lion Park and saw the beautiful lions and white lions. Very impressive.  I look foward to my visit to the park again and my next big safari at Kruger park.  

The visit truly inspired me and got my creative juices flowing. I am working on some sketches and hope to post some soon.  

Here are some beautiful pictures I took during our visit:
