|Zebras were the first African mammal |
we saw upon entering the park.
It was very exciting!!

Then we met a guy in Bangkok who had done a 60 day overland safari in various countries in Africa and loved it. We looked into it and although some looked intriguing, we weren't sure if we'd really enjoy 21 or more days in a big truck with 18-20 other people driving from place to place and not having the freedom to stop or take a left just because we felt like it. We met 2 women at coffee bay who were on a 9 month overland safari and were really enjoying it (although when we met them they were on a short hiatus from the group and were enjoying that too- 9 months, 24/7 is a long time to spend with the same group of people! Oops- does that count as my outside voice if it's written?) If I were on my own I would likely have signed up for an overland safari but it just didn't feel right for the 3 of us.
|Impalas were everywhere!!|
|Hippos kill the most number of people in Africa, mostly in|
rural area where people are near the river collecting wood,
fishing etc. Don't get between a hippo and the water!!
|This is not the hyena that Chloe referred to in her post. |
He was moving much too fast to capture in a photo.
