We got all we expected from this trip and more. During our three week vacation we came close to impressive animals (real close), met wonderful people, saw the biggest slum in Africa, fed turtles, lerned how spices look in nature, were awoken by lion roaring, learned about the masai culture, and much more.
LionOne of the first nights we woke up at 5 am to the sound of a lion's roaring. He moved around, at first far away, then closer. We lay completely still in our tent with goosebumps holding eachother's hands real hard. It was an intense. truley scary sound, and we learned the day after that the lion had only been 100m from our tent. We will never forget that sound. Actually, when we first saw the lions several days later, t was not as impressive as those massive roars. Still, the animals were quite impressive and we got real close to them. Luckily, all of teh lions we saw, had just been eating and couldnt care less about our truck. This was a good thing 'cause as we learned the first day, there were absolutely no weapons on the truck, and it was wide open on the sides, with plenty of room for a lion to get in if it wanted to.
White RhinoThe white rhino's (rare to see) were quite impressive beasts, and three of them wandered around only meters away from our truck. We had to keep still, not to annoy them, 'cause they can be really dangerous and even tip the truck over if they are provoced enough.
Our Safari TruckAs you can see, there were pleny of room for a lion to get in to the truck, had it wanted to. Luckily they left us alone. We spent countless hours bumping along in this truck. The roads were full of potholes and bumps. Usually they stick 21 people in this truck, but on our safari we were only 9, which were appreaciated. :)
