  1. Oh my gosh your animal photos are insane!! How close did you get, seriously?!?! And EIGHT lions, girl that eight deserves all the caps it can get! I’m absolutely loving the crazy juxtaposition of the city peeking out right behind the rhino – perfect example of two completely different worlds coming together. Loved loved loved this, I just want to get out there on safari myself now.

    1. Thank you so much Rhiannon! It was one of the best travel experiences we’ve had so far, and don’t get me started on the lions’ scene! Unfortunately, they ended up hungry that morning, as they couldn’t gather the courage to confront the lone buffalo. I guess this means you can come on safari and see whether the buffalo will live to see another day? 🙂

  2. I absolutely loved following along on your safari ride! Your comments were perfect and probably exactly what I would have been thinking if I were right there with you! Amazing photographs as well. Looks like you had a great adventure!

    1. Thank you so much Lynne! Truly appreciate your kind comments. Yes! what a morning that was, we still remember vividly to this day. Thinking of going back soon, hoping you’ll join us then?

  3. I loved scrolling through and reading your captions. I felt like I was right along with you on the safari. Great way to chronicle and share the experience.
    You stay awesome too!

  4. Amazing photos! What an experience! I’m not surprised you guys are jumping in those closing photos. My favourite (other than the lions) was the rhino with the city in the background – not a shot you see very often.

  5. Where exactly is this in Kenya? Since I grew up in Tanzania, I am more used to seeing animals in proper safari wildlife parks. So was kind of surprised when I saw the background of a city And that is how I knew that a Giraffes toungue was grey. 🙂

    1. This is the Nairobi National Park. It is actually the only park in the world located in a city! We understand Tanzania has her fair share of wildlife and we are looking forward to visiting soon! Any recommendations?

  6. Wow, how exciting! Going on a safari ride is high up on my bucket list. I absolutely love animals, it must have been stunning to see all of them up close!
