Nice to leave the city
It's fun to see the city skyline way off in the distance. There are lots of postcards available that exploit the sometimes-plentiful animals being so close to the city. (Picture this same shot with a rhino in the foreground, with everything in perfect focus and perfectly lit.)
Anyway, it's great to leave the diesel fumes, traffic congestion and zillions of people behind for a short break in a very peaceful place.
