Rhinos are an amazing creature to watch!

So far this is the biggest elephant we’ve seen.

These Elephant’s won’t leave us alone! A car will drive by them perfectly fine then we drive by and they try to kill us!

Most people get killed by Rhino’s from staying on their path. They don’t want to kill you, they just want to get back to the water.

Cape Buffalo are scary. We saw the first to last buffalo in this herd, there were over 500!

Wildebeest are mostly found by zebra and impala so all three animals can use each others different senses in case their under attack.

Giraffes are one crazy animal! They only have seven neck vertebrae just like humans, yet their neck is so long!

The most exciting part thing we saw in Kruger was these two cheetah’s. They stalked and chased a herd of zebra and missed… They run so fast!

  1. Your photos of Kruger national park are great! I can’t believe that the giraffe’s neck is so long and has the same number of vertebrae as us. How in the world do they hold their necks up? Do you think they get a neck ache after a long day?

  2. You guys look like you are having a blast! Hope everything is going well for you…I miss you and hope our paths cross again so you can tell us your wonderful stories in person.

  3. I used to love watching the Springbok leap……that was always a thrill too. I hope you got to see lots of that. I love seeing all your wildlife shots. It makes me wish I could have the dirt of Africa between my toes again.

  4. You have issues with your use of the correct word. Example: ‘…from staying on there path.’ it’s THEIR path. Make certain your mom teaches you correct usage!

  5. Lily, I am loving all your posts and photos! I wonder if another reason the wildebeest is found near zebra and impala is because his species is actually a cross between those two animals! He looks like it, doesn’t he?
