Breakfast when on safari is….

Instead of the old run down vehicles with bad tires, this morning we were greeting with these new vehicles whose doors beside where we sat had a propensity of opening on their own as we drove down the road. The first time it came open he blamed Norma for leaning against it. The next he tied it shut. What a crappy company O.A.T uses. Must be all about being the cheapest. As for us, our opinion is the vehicles and drivers are the worst.

How could the mean old driver ever blame someone as nice as Norma?

In our vehicles everyone has a side seat.The big groups that are bussed in, or those going on the cheap aren’t so lucky.

When you are an elephant you need more than just a leaf to fill you up.

I’ll fly away, high up into the sky.

No open fires in this park, so the park supplies propane grills.

What happens when you accidently hit the wrong button on your camera like I did. It took me a while to realize I had done this, meanwhile I was taking photos with all different colors. Bad Bob.

Buzzards roost. Okay, so maybe it is a vulture, I still think buzzards roost is a cool caption.

Monkeying around. Or for all I know it is a baboon. I think I’ll stick with monkey.

Bathing elephant style. First you get wet, then you throw dirt all over yourself.

And all of that makes you hungry again, so off you go in search of your next meal.


IMGP1134


A minor altercation elephant style. I was so into watching them tussle I forgot to a photo until it was almost over. I may not have the photos, but I do have the memories.


IMGP1139


How they stood  drinking after the altercation. Can you tell I really wasn’t looking through the viewfinder while watching to see what might happen next.


IMGP1169


Time to go swimming.

Here comes a couple more.

Fun time in the water.

I’ll dunk you.


IMGP1200



I’'ll dunk you back.


IMGP1203


You can hold me under as long as you want, but I can still breath because I’ve got my snorkel up.


PB152084


How far away we were from where they were playing.


IMGP1251


Wildebeest.

trying to decide which dessert to take. In the end I took on of each, all six of them. Smart Fat Bob.


You might notice the light is from lanterns. This camp is also off the grid. The cooking is done over charcoal and all power is solar.
