Safari in Livingston, Zambia

 Giraffe's are my favorite animal.

They are so graceful when they walk.




 We saw lots of monkeys and baboons.

 We were blessed to see many elephants on this trip both in Zambia and in Chobe.

They are so fun to watch!

I think these two were loving on each other!

 We were able to walk out and see the rhinos.  Quite the adventure!


 We were so close to them.

We stayed at Victoria Apartments.  It has a kitchen so we were able to eat several of our meals there so we did not have to eat out all the time.  
This was such a great trip!

Chobe Safari by land

 After our river cruise our guide took us to Chobe Safari Lodge for a buffet lunch.
It was very good.
Then we got in a safari truck and took off to see animals.  We saw so many different animals but unfortunately we did not see any lions.  




 warthog

 I loved seeing different animals all together.

 Looks like this one enjoyed a nice mud bath!

 We saw so many elephant on this day. It was so cool to watch about 100 elephants cross the river and come out right in front of our truck!

 The hippos were being lazy but their little one was moving around some.

 here is a video of some of the zebra we saw

 It almost looks like a mirrored image.



 I loved seeing how they bent over to drink water.



After our safari our guide took us back to the ferry where we crossed back over to Zambia.  It was a great day!!

Chobe River Cruise

 I felt so bad for Hannah and Justin who were feeling bad with a yucky cold but they still went out on the river cruise anyway.  It sure was cold being on the water with the wind blowing in our faces but it was so good to see so many animals.

 We saw lots of hippos, both in the water and out of the water.
It was really cool to see baby animals throughout the day as well.  This baby hippo was only about one month old.

We were just 4 feet from this crocs!

 cape buffalo

 fisheagle

 This type of bird kept trying to hitch a ride on the boat.  They were so cute!





 We loved seeing the elephants come down to the water to drink and take a bath.
