In Which I Meant To Write About Breakfast But Got Distracted By Elephants!

On the second day of our safari we woke up at 5:30am to get a head start on all the animals! First we found some elephants, including one Andrew thought might be less than a week old. So I took about a million pictures :)
I made a comment about how I wished I could get closer and suddenly, Andrew lent us his zoom lens, which improved the quality of our pictures about seven thousand percent!
The picture on the left might be one of my favourite pictures I took the whole trip.
After the elephants it was time to see if we could find our leopard friend again.
Our patience was rewarded when "Curiosity" (as Sam named him) came out to play again.
At about 8:30, Dennis and Andrew parked under a tree, pulled a table and chairs out from the truck, and set up an amazing breakfast for us.
What an incredible, memorable, place to eat breakfast.

Then we went and found some more elephants.

I don't know that I'll ever get over seeing elephants roaming in the wild. It was just so amazing to see them interact with each other and living their normal lives. However, there were more incredible experiences to come and I'll be back on Monday to tell you about them...

  1. Wow! What an amazing experience. This is the only way we should see animals. I do understand the need for zoos when a species is endangered and hopefully someday with conservation etc this will be the only way we get to see the animals. Can't wait for next instalment. Oh and that breakfast setup - amazing.

    1. Zoos have been forever ruined for me now. You are so right that this should be the only way to see animals as it really is the best way. I do realize that not everyone is as fortunate as we are to be able to travel though...

  2. Those are great pictures! Elephants are our absolute favorites.

  3. Thank you for sharing your adventure. You are so brave. :)


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
