I've stayed in a lot of hotel rooms - more than a thousand nights in the past ten years - but the guest house we're staying at in the suburbs of Pretoria is the first place where a cat comes with the room!
Not that I mind; I like cats but we travel too much to have one. Think of it as a type of outsourcing (catsourcing?)
Of course this is more like the type of cat South Africa is famous for.
What's that? Not that much bigger than the first one you say? OK, what about this one?
We took these at a Lion Park we visited last weekend. They had a surprisingly good range of lions and other wildlife considering it was only a 30 minute drive from the city. But tomorrow we're off to the real South African safari experience at the famous Kruger National Park!
