A Strange Sighting on the Afternoon Drive

Posted on July 27, 2010

As Gary left on the afternoon drive, a strange “apparition” appeared out of the bushes!!

Always good to have such good friends staying with us again.

This time Trevor and Theresa brought Alan and Abby with them, their first safari, and it was inevitable that the Gorilla Suit had to come out.

We started the plot by telling Alan and Abby that we had a rouge Gorilla hanging around the Camp and terrorizing everyone, indeed it had been seen near the Camp in the morning. We then strapped Evert into the Gorilla Suit and had him hide behind the rocks just outside of the Lodge, awaiting Gary to depart on drive. Obviously we had to brief Gary on the plans as we were worried he might shoot Evert as he came screaming out of the bush.

Gary stopped just outside the entrance to the Lodge and pointed to the right to get Alan and Abby’s attention, and at that precise moment, Evert could have won an Oscar for the way he jumped off the rocks and screaming at the top of his lungs, and charged the vehicle!!

Well if you could have heard the screams………………………..Abby got airborne and landed on Alan’s lap, preventing him jumping off the vehicle and disappearing into the bush.

Thanks for being such good sports, I know one of these days you will forgive us!!!!

  1. hahahaha i heard the laughs about 400m away,good job Evert you certainly look great in that Suite,should wear it as your Uniform. No Leopard Will snarl at you outside of the Suites!lol.

  2. Are you sure that was Evert ?????

    Someone said there is a strucking resemblance to Duncan before the first coffee of the morning !

    Great one guys.

  3. oh my god this is so funny!! i bet Abby wet herself!!
    you got us kids with this 3 years ago and still it comes back to haunt people!!

  4. Ceri you have no idea how loud Abby screamed, although personally think Alan got more of a fright.

    And Tim you have a point, in retrospect Evert would have been even more scary without the Gorilla suit!!!!!

  5. Ha ,ha Dunx- We definitely need that Gorilla at Hillside!!!
    Me thinks you need to bring the "suit" back to Hillside, when you next come home-
    I’m sure Alwyn will look great in the suit!!
    And he might be able to catch the wild dog too!
