Kathy’s Smilebox – Walking With Lions at Horseback, South Africa

Smilebox_1352515549Some of the SmarTours group took advantage of an optional walk with the lions tour on their last day in Johannesburg, at Horseback which is about one hour north, northeast of Pretoria.  There they joined the MacRae family who are raising lions on their farm, free of the feline variety of AIDs which is decimating wild lion populations.  Lions are raised in captivity to 18 months, then placed into reserves where they can breed naturally and whose disease free offspring will be released back into the wild.  For more information about this program, click here to visit the MacRae website.  While viewing Kathy’s Walking with Lions Part 1 and Walking with Lions Part 2, click on individual pictures to enlarge them on your screen, and on the right facing arrows which will start each video.  Have you ever seen a serval cat?  Thanks Kathy for sharing your experience with all of us!

    • Thank you for your comment. Is it the web log in its entirety that is loading slow for you, or the Smilebox slideshow of photos. If it’s the Smileboxes, then those can load slow through WiFi connections – they are much better on a direct wire connect in which case they should load in less than 30 sec. However, if it is the entire post that is loading slow, then I have not experienced that and have not received any other comments like this for the site. Jim

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance. I must say you’ve done
    a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads
    super fast for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!

    • Thank you. The template is a straight forward 2011 theme. We really enjoyed our South Africa to Victoria Falls and Chobe trip and it has ignited my interest in this part of the world. I recommend a (longer) trip there to everyone. Cheers from west coast Canada.
