Okay, so today is the big day. Yesterday afternoon
we reached the outskirts of Kruger National Park and today we’re actually going in to
spot some of the wildlife. So we’re going in for a sunrise drive. It is really earlier.
It is about 5:15 am right now. We’re going to head into the park and – yeah – it is safari
time! Okay, so we finally reached the park and I’m
going to give you a little tour of our cool truck for the day. Come on over. Come on in. Make that big climb up there. Yeah, I’m in. One thing that totally surprised me was just
how close we got to the lions. I think it was only about 10 meters away from the road. So they were really docile and the lioness
was just sleeping and cleaning its cubs and in the back there was the big alpha male just
stretching and yawning. It was surreal. So that’s been an amazing safari so far. It
is only 10 in the morning and we’ve already seen more wildlife than I ever imagined. We
saw lions, elephants, wildebeest. Oh, gosh more than I can even remember. Yeah, it was
amazing and we were able to get up close and have a good look at them. So it has been so
much fun. So tell us what happened to you at lunchtime
today? So the most ridiculous thing happened to me during lunch. A bird shit right here.
It ricochet of off my shoulder all the way down to here. And while I was still recovering
from the shock from that another bird shitted on this side. So I got hit on both shoulders
but apparently if a bird shits on you it is good luck. So I have a double dose of good
luck. Maybe that means I’m going to see cheetahs this afternoon. Woo hoo! Right now we’re visiting a private game reserve
to see even more cool wildlife. And what caught us for a total surprise is that we saw so
many giraffes. Apparently this is the most giraffes have ever been spotted out here. So we saw them walk right in front of our
vehicle and we even saw a couple of them fighting. They were swinging their heads at each other.
It was completely bonkers. Yeah, so overall it has been an amazing day.
We saw more animals than we ever expected. And what a beautiful way to wrap up the day.
Now we’re just going to watch the sunset, drink some wine and enjoy some cheese. And
do it all over again tomorrow.
