…Oh my. Well, not really Bears, but we had the opportunity to do a little Safari before heading back to the states. Previously, I was in the mindset of getting out of dodge after the climb. However, in hindsight, stoked to spend some time doing something I’ve never done before. I’ve heard from friends whose been on safari and told me that it’s worth it if you can do it. I kept telling myself, “I’ve been to a Zoo before, so how much better can it be?” Damn, I was wrong. To start off with, we’re in these bad boys.
The safari tour was simply out of this world. Being able to go into the world of nature was dope. We’re cruising in our Land Rovers, blasting Watch the Thrown, beers in the back, armed with my 60D and safari garb, we’re on a mission to capture what was out there. Check it
The highlight of the ride was seeing an actual “kill” of a female lion and her cubs on a zebra. It was trippy to see everything go down in front of our eyes. What we witnessed next took us by surprise
All of a sudden, we saw the two cubs tugging at something. At first we thought it was the leg of the zebra, and then we noticed it was the unborn baby of the momma zebra. It was pregnant and it all seemed to make sense why it was slower than the rest of the pack of zebras. My heart dropped as the cubs pulled the lifeless baby zebra from the momma. Damn, its all free reign here
In all, this was more than a trip to the top of a mountain or a way to give back or even something new to see, it was a life changing experience of being part of something that was completely out of your control, which def is a good thing
And btw, we’re now HUGE in Africa
