This post was written by a 10 year old safari guest in June. Her parents had booked a Thomson safari 10 years ago, but decided to postpone when they found out they were expecting. They all traveled with us a decade later! Read along with her daily blog entries below and be sure to scroll down to the end to see her wonderful safari sketches.
I can't believe the day is finally here! My parents have been waiting for 10 years for this, and I've been waiting 4 years.
We saw a lot of wildlife, including zebras, impala, ostriches, waterbuck and lots of elephants (the babies were so cute). We even saw a lion! I got used to the bumpy roads and started loving it! We were allowed to stand up on our seats and watch wildlife from above. We got to our camp and played soccer. The tents at camp were very well made. There was a bathroom with pump-flush toilets and hot showers where you ask the staff to fill them for you. There are actual twin beds inside the tents!!! There were also solar powered lights.
We are going to do storytelling today! We saw 30 lions including 3 cubs! CUBS!!! They even had spots on them. A little while later, we saw two cheetahs! They were just stickin' their heads out of the tall grass.
Today we did track identification with Emmanuel. We saw a bunch of hyena tracks, wildebeest, zebra, dik dik, gazelle, reedbuck and guinea fowl tracks. We saw the hippo pool with a hundred hippos. At night we had dinner and then I completed a beaded necklace.
I was really, really sad to leave.
