March 19th 2008
Lake Nakuru definately turned out to be the best game experience for us so far on this trip. We saw every big animal that the National Park has to offer including the elusive leopard and black rhino (these two within the first 20 minutes of entering the park).

Beautiful animal
I've been reading all your Africa blogs over the last couple of days. You are so lucky to have seen leopards in the wild! May I ask how close you were? What kind of lens did you use to capture so many close-ups of animals?

Hi Anna,
Hi Anna, Thanks for all the comments, it's nice to see people still look at our blogs every once in a while. It's so hard to believe, all the things we have seen and done. Africa was already 5 years ago. I miss it so much. We actually didn't buy too many souvenirs, but luckily both sets of our parents came to meet us in Cape Town for a week, so we were able to unload a bunch of stuff on to them. This was really nice. As for photography - Jordan was shooting with a 70-300 lens most of the time, and this photo might have been cropped as well- can't remember. :-) We just moved to northern Canada, the Yukon actually - it is more of a life style choice, looking forward to exploring a bit more of our own country for a change. Take care, safe travels. Kathie
