I want a hippopotamus for Christmas!

I found some free wifi today so I could finally upload some pictures from our safari! The name of the game reserve we went to out of Richards Bay South Africa was called Hluhluwe-imfolozi (pronounced Shush-Louie imfolozi). Which supposedly is the sound a hippo makes when pulling its foot out of the mud. We didn’t see any hippos so we can’t confirm that but we saw lots of giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, warthogs, monkeys, antelope, rhinos, impalas, and birds. Pretty good for one day safari and only a couple of hours at that. Also there was a torrential rain storm. I mean like buckets falling out of the sky for at least an hour straight. Our open air jeep thankfully had a roof but we still got soaked though. All part of the adventure right! There was a lot of rain on the East coast for a few days so we were supposed to go on a second safari in Durban South Africa the next day but it was cancelled because the roads got washed out. Bummer. 😦 So we hung out on the beach in Durban instead. That was an experience in itself. The photos I previously posted don’t do it justice. There were literally thousands of people. Crammed into such a small space. Unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. I will try to upload a video next time I get free wifi. It was so cool!! Anyways, here’s some pictures from our safari!
