It seems like we have been gone for months! Africa is so much! We just scratched the surface, but in that short time, our senses were overloaded on the colors, the sounds, the smells, the contrasts, the problems and the beauty of the continent we call Africa. The last night, Steve (who was affectionately nick named: Mr. Animal Planet, or Game Drive Boy) went on a night game drive. The group came across two large male lions who had just fed and were resting. The driver made some guttural sounds and the lions ROARED Not, just A roar, but deep,LOUD, freaking primal sounds that actually shook the vehicle they were in. For Steve, it was the frosting on the cake! And he said he will never forget it. I take home so many great memories. Seeing so many animals free and wild that we have only seen in captivity, was the main reason we went to Africa. But there was so much more, from all the people we met and interacted with, to our new knowledge about a country we knew very little about. I will just share some random pictures, and I really hope we will go back. There is much more to see!
