Hello Bloggineers. Today, we’ll be spending the day on Safari West. This is a 400 acre private wildlife preserve located in Santa Rosa, California. We’re getting our wristbands for the overnight stay and some Cheetah Cash for the gift shops. C’mon guys, let’s hop into the Jeep. The driver is taking us to our cabin. After a short right we have arrived. This is the tent that we will be staying in tonight. [Cousin] Woah! I’m going to give you a tour of our luxurious tent cabin. Here’s a bed. A bunk bed, that fits two people on each level. A heater. Sculpture and art work. Inside here… there’s sort of a rain shower here. A toilet. A sink and toiletry. And this is the view from the balcony. These luxurious tents were imported from Botswana and customized here at Safari West. We’re heading to dinner and Brother spotted something. [Brother] Uh, a whale! Good grief, that’s not a whale. However we did see a wild turkey and some flamingoes. Hello. Hello. They sound like pigs. Now we’re having dinner at Savannah Cafe. First we’re getting some appetizers. Sausages, corn chowder, bread and crackers. Cousin is chewing some cheese and Brothers munching on melons. Now it’s time for the main course. That’s a big piece of chicken. There’s even a steak station. We’re enjoying dinner with a great view by the warm fire. [Cousin] My favorite item is the steak. I’ll tell you what my favorite item is once I’m done eating. And there’s dessert after the meal: ice cream sundae. Later that evening we join the campfire chat. First we’re going to make some crafts. We’re creating our own animal medallions. I drew an unknown animal. Now we’re going to make some s’mores. Brother is putting the chocolate and the marshmallow on the graham cracker. He gives the s’mores his signature thumbs up. Time for folk tales and legends from around Africa. [Storyteller] And this story again takes place quite a while ago. After the fable, we’re heading back to our tent using flashlights. Here! Tonight we’re all sleeping in the top bunk. Good morning Bloggineers. It’s a brand new day, and we’re going to get some breakfast. Now we’re going on a walking tour with Miss Paulette. First we’re stopping by to look at the flamingoes. Next were visiting the aviary. We saw many interesting looking birds. [Brother] I am going to find out the duck. We’re leaving the aviary to view some mammals. Oh no a monkey fight. This primate is throwing a tantrum. Then we saw some big cats. I hope I don’t get sprayed like that one time. Now the moment we’ve been waiting for it to safari jeep tour. Cousin and I are going to sit on the top deck. Buckle up boys and here we go. [Cousin] This is so cool. There are nearly 900 animals from over 90 unique species that roam through Safari West. We’re entering the enclosure where all the animals live. On the tour, we will see wildlife species native to Africa including giraffes, rhinoceros and cape buffalo. There’s that wild turkey again. Get off the road, bird! Then we saw some deer and antelope. [Cousin] Can I do a video? Brother is waving to us from the bottom deck. Then we saw an ostrich. Ms. Paulette is opening a box and finds an egg. [Ms. Paulette] It’s really kind of slippery and wet, and I will pass it up there, but be really careful. One ostrich egg is equivalent to about 24 chicken eggs. I didn’t want to touch it because it looked very slimy. Up next is the rhinos. We’re going to deeper into the hills. Here’s the medallion of the unknown animal that I made last night. Now it’s time to switch positions on the Jeep so others can have a chance to ride on the top. And here we go again. We’re encountering more hoofed animals. In case you’re wondering, Cousin is holding a spray bottle to shoot at animals that get close to the Jeep. I hope we don’t have to use it. Are zebras black with white stripes or white with black stripes? We’re holding on tight because we’re going over some rough terrain. Shh. Here’s comes an eland antelope. We’re going over another bump. Next we’re looking at one of Africa’s most dangerous animals: the Cape buffalo. Lastly, we saw an ostrich lying in the middle of the road. [Ms. Paulette] I’m going to back up. I don’t want to run over this ostrich. [Ms. Paulette] Here she comes. Hold on to everything. The ostrich is either looking for food to eat or something to steal from our Jeep. Cousin, get your squirt bottle ready in case she attacks. The bird decided to leave without any conflict. Quick, let’s get out of here! Is that what I think it is? Is the ostrich following us? Just when we were approaching the exit gate, we got a little surprise. The ostrich is back and your squirt gun ready! Oh no, it’s not working and we attracted another ostrich! Than a wrangler came to rescue us. [Chris Pratt] Stand down. [Ms. Paulette] From behind you’re OK. Hooray we made it out alive. This concludes our safari tour. [Cousin] My favorite part was the part where I got to squirt the ostrich cuz it was chasing our truck. [Brother] My favorite part was squirting the ostrich. For the Jeep tour, my favorite part was again when the ostrich came up to our car. The ostrich thought the Jeep was her boyfriend because she didn’t have a boyfriend. We had an adventurous time here.
