African Safari

This past weekend we got to go to a small town called Mole. We left early Friday morning around 6:00 a.m. and arrived at Mole at 9:00 p.m. Yes it took us 14 hours to get there. It was the longest bus ride of my life. The last 2 1/2 hours were on a never ending bumpy road. I never thought that we were going to make it but we did!!

This is what we arrived to! Three wart hogs sitting at the front door. They scared us half to death. All we could do was laugh. Welcome to Africa everyone. So we went and got one of the Hotel workers and they came and through some rocks at them. Well then they all starting running towards us which made them scare us even more. It was quite the little adventure to the beginning of our trip!

Here is the view that we woke up to. It was so pretty and green! During the day we would watch the elephants come down to the water to drink! It was very cool and exciting!

We woke up to Kofi our tour guide yelling It's time to get up everybody!! So we woke up and got ready for our Safari! We left with our guide who was holding a gun that was loaded if I might add. We first went to a village and this is what we found! There were five elephants just hanging out! I was so close to them. It was so cool!!

This Kop our lovely guide. We are standing right infront of a huge ant hill. Check out his nice gun that is loaded!! He was very funny and so serious!! Me and dear Sara needed a little entertainment and so we decided to make a Crocidile Dundy episode of our Safari. He was getting so made at us because we were scaring the animals away!! It was quite hilarious! Especially mine and Sara's cool accents!!

Here is a wart hog praying before he eats his breakfast!!
