African Safari Day 3

We definitely cannot get enough of this place. Everywhere you look is one beautiful sight after another. We are so lucky to live on such an amazing planet..

Today we got to see the wildebeest and zebra migration. From the vast Serengeti plains to the champagne colored hills of Kenya’s Masai Mara over 2+ million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle, migrate in a clockwise fashion over 1,800 miles each year in search of rain ripened grass. It was such an amazing experience.

Cape Buffalo are also known as Black Death and can be extremely dangerous. They are said to have killed more big game hunters than any other animal in Africa. Males can reach heights of 6ft and weigh a hefty 1,750 lbs.

Grey crowned cranes are the national bird of Uganda.

Today we started searching for lions at 6 am and by noon we still hadn’t found any.  We almost gave up and we’re going to head back to camp but our guide decided we would check one more place and BAM! We found several big cats.

This is the “main road” to our campsite.

Home sweet home. Kusini sanctuary, where the animals roam freely around you. At night you can hear them moving around and lions roaring. You are not allowed to leave your tent at night without an escort. This is definitely one rule I will not be breaking!
