  Turtle Race

A normal car will usually suffice for south african national parks; you probably won`t need a 4WD. It is not always easy to spot animals in the parks from the car as the vegetation is high and even an elephant can vanish completely from sight a few meters distance from the road. So be patient and drive slowly.

Keep in mind that even bug beetles have right of way! They are so big you can easily spot them from a car.

By the way I didn`t arrange the turtles on the photo to have a better shot. They just came along naturally. No animals were harmed while shooting this photo.
