The adventure continues!
Things just get better and better.
Here we are getting ready for another drive …
Today we tracked and later spotted lions for the second time!
I am thinking that the cub in the center of the picture might be a young male.
Our driver got us so close to one hiding in the grass that she gave us a dirty look. We were instructed to make sure all our limbs were in the jeep! Notice the pinned back ears. This lady is not happy!
They really are difficult to spot in all that golden dry grass.
And so beautiful! We could have watched them for hours.
But there are hippos to see in the water floating …
And sunning on the beach …
Our driver was very cautious around these guys. They are actually very dangerous and kill more humans every year than sharks!
One of my favorite animals were the Cape buffalo. I fell in love with their charming faces and fancy horns.
I think the guy in the center looks a bit like George Washington in a powdered wig. Notice how the insides of the ears look like butterfly wings?
They can sure move quickly when they want to …
We spotted some other quilter type people too. Here is Jodi Barrows with her husband Steve. Their son Tucker is on the right.
On to the rhinos!
And lets not forget the wildebeests!
There is just not enough time or space to show and tell all the wonderful things we saw!
So I will wrap this adventure up with a few last photos. This picture is of our guide and driver Sofiso (pronounced sew-fee-sue).
We have corrupted him with his very first Oreo cookie!
The gangs final night drive …
And my favorite animal of the whole adventure! I will NEVER forget hearing those elephants breathing!
Thanks Africa for the trip of a lifetime!
Leaving my carbon footprints …
Hope to return again someday!
