Today we went on a game drive to two game reserves that are connected to each other. Hluhluwe (pronounced Shoe-Shoe-/L/weh) and Umfolozi (pronounced Oem-foe-low-zee). I don't have a lot to say, as I think the pictures speak for themselves.

 

We did see a lion but he was too far away to take a picture. Overall we saw 3 of the big 5.

 

The BIG 5 are the following:

-Elephant

-Leopard

-Lion

-Rhino

-Buffalo

 

We got up pretty close and personal with these critters!

Who are you and what are you doing in my space?

We had lunch at a local lodge with a beautiful view.

Then this guy happened...

Here's a video of him walking in front of us crossing the street...

 

 

And the countryside is real pretty too.

And finally...

 

 

 

You know you are in Africa when you are woken up at 6am by a troupe of monkeys banging on your roof!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Actually I would have thought that was a given!
