Safari Bitches!!

It is spring break here (i have ten days off from teaching) and so I went on a short safari. There are several animal parks in Burkina - all of them are in the south. I went to a park called Arly near the border with Togo. This is the truck we went in. It was crazy windy and sunny up there.



Eventually i got in the front with Adama - the sun was killer.



This is the first "animal" we saw . . . and its a dead one. A dead elephant. But dont be sad because we saw a lot of live elephants too. And baby ones!


Like this elephant here! He was the alpha male elephant and he ran at us and attacked that big tree in the bottom right corner of the photo. Sorry!


They are so wonderful!! Oh the wee ones are so cute!!!!!!



Here are some hippos.


And some warthogs . . . and yes, i DID call the hogs while on safari.
