Scenes from South Africa – Elephants

So, back in November we started studying the huge continent of Africa.

We spent a significant amount of time on one country in particular.

Because in December we took a little field trip to the above mentioned country.

We spent 2 glorious weeks with family and friends.

We went camping for 4 days at Pilanesburg National Park where we saw 4 of the big 5 and plenty more!

Like this fella.

Now this guy was HUGE!

He was just casually strolling down the road towards us.

We all, that is the grown-ups, pleaded with Greg’s brother Steve to back up the truck.

He refused.

As he walked by us, I could of put my hand out the window and touched him.

Thinking back, I’m not sure why I had my window down.

On another day, Steve somehow got our Land Rover (and all 10 of us in it) surrounded by a herd of mamas and babies.

We all thought it was cute when this baby mock charged us.

Not so much when the mama did it.

Remind me to never go on safari with Steve again.

(just kidding Steve, life is never boring around you)
