Safari in Zambia
Posted by Claire Gillman on April 6, 2014
We visited Luangwa National Park in Zambia with the boys this week and we were allowed to do the safari drive in our own car, which we loved. We had such a good day and saw so much game. As well as the lions, zebras, hippos, gazelles and monkeys, we were especially pleased to see a group of 13 giraffes grazing the top leaves of the trees together and gathering around to protect the babies. One giraffe in particular was completely I fazed by the car and came to take a closer look at us.
The Cruiser seemed right at home in the park and managed the tougher off-road sections with aplomb so that we were able to get up close to all the game.
The day finished with a fantastic sunset over the river as the animals came down to drink and the hippos came out to graze. One actually walked past the entrance to the restaurant as we ate our dinner.
