Hi everyone! It is Kaelyn here! I am so glad you are here! Today, I am going to be talking about the safari we went one when we had our free day in Africa. First, we woke up really early and we all got in cars to drive to South Africa. We had to drive over the border until we got to our safari. It was called Krugger National Park and it was the size of Israel. Then when we checked in to the park, we got back in our cars. ( There will be pictures at the end of this post.) First, we saw antelopes, gazelles, and birds. We kept driving for a little bit, and we were able to see some monkeys sitting in a tree. We thought they were birds at first. We did see some cool birds. They were black birds with super long tails. We also saw giraffes, well half of them. Their heads were mostly in the trees. 🙂 We got to see wild hogs too. Then we stopped for lunch. We ate a nice all you can eat buffet, which was South African of course. I also got a giraffe key chain. Then we got back out there, we were able to see elephants and their babies and we saw hippos come out of the water and open their mouths! Then we also saw a heard of wild water buffalo in the middle of the road. We had to weave a bit! My favorite animal we saw was a heard of lions! There were two young males and some females. They were sunning themselves in the middle of the warm, black road. One of them even growled a tiny bit! They did like that our car was getting in the way! It was so cool! We got see some crocodiles and even some rhinos as we were going. It was the most amazing thing! It is not like going to the zoo it is like seeing them like, wild because that is exactly what it was! I hope you enjoy these pictures. Also, I have one more post after this about Africa and then I will talk about another mission trip or another awesome thing!

I am wearing the same thing that I was wearing when me and my sister took the picture with the safari. The fifth picture is a hippo we saw. The sixth picture is of the two male lions we saw. They were like four feet away from the car! The seventh picture of a giraffe. The eighth picture is of an elephant at sunset. The ninth picture is of the sighting board where you could see where certain animals were last seen. The tenth and eleventh picture is of the terrain and cool plant we saw.
