I should be clear and say that we also saw baboons on Friday but I can't show a zillion pictures....sorry folks!  Anyway, Saturday was the big day.  We got up before dawn and then drove to the park to do a game drive in the morning.  We saw elephant, giraffe, cobb, hartebeast, water buffalo, waterbuck, aribi, hippo, crocodile, fish eagle, a wide variety of other birds, in short, a lot of animals.  Halfway through the drive, we took a short break to stretch by the Nile and there was a pod of hippos.  There they are!

The giraffes were numerous and all over the place.  They were pretty awesome.


David explained that they are called sausage trees and that the "sausages" are a type of vegetable that the various monkeys like.  It's good for their digestion.
