Even before we reached the park we came across these elephants just walking near the road. No fence at all!
I can't help but think of Madagascar when I see zebras now.
Warthogs. Also known as Pumbaa.
Oh, for heaven's sake. I've forgotten the name of this one. Who can help me out?
All I can remember is that his bottom looks like he sat on a toilet seat with wet paint on it.
Debbie was most excited to see the giraffes. She wrote a college paper once about how she was most like a giraffe because they have the largest hearts. I agree!
This baby was adorable
I'm sorry. Did we disturb your lunch?
Wildebeests. Apparently the legends here say that the wildebeest was created from spare parts of animals: impala, buffalo, and hyenas to name a few.
Our guide said we were really lucky to see these because they had been across the river in Botswana.
Buffalo! Not like the water buffalo from India or the Bison in the U.S.
Our guide warned us that buffalo are dangerous because they will charge at you without warning. The one on the right stared straight at us the entire time.
As the evening drew near and the sun went down we came across a field full of baboons.
There were also impala, zebras and guinea fowl all happily enjoying their suppers.
This little guy stole my heart.
Do you think I should adopt him?
Now it's your turn!
Which African animal would you most like to see?
Take a guess--which animal was my favorite and which animal made me squeal with excitement. And remember, I'm still looking for the name of that other animal.
Anyone who gets the answers right will get their name in lights on Friday.
