African Safari

On Saturday we went on our first Safari. It was about a 5 hour drive around the national park on bumpy roads to see what wildlife and animals we could see. We went with a couple from the States who are in our class. We stopped for lunch on the top of a hill and ate while looking out at the landscape. It was an amazing day. Here are a few of our memories...

To me it looked like the giraffes were lining up for school. Donovan is taking a look at the water buffalo. We got pretty close to some at one point and I have to admit I was a little nervous.Love this family photo. I can't believe everyone was looking and smiling at the same time. Behind us is the Ngurdoto crater. This is a thorn bush that grows a lot around here. You do not want to get stuck in those thorns.

Can you see Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance. Well it is there. Unfortunately we didn't see it either. It was covered by clouds. On a clear day I bet that would be an amazing view.

Donovan conked out. He slept through all the bumps and even a lap change.

Seeing the baboons picking bugs and stuff off each other was one of Shelbyanne's favorite things of the day. We there are a few of our memories of the day. We really had a wonderful time as a family and with our friends.
