Here are just SOME of the dozens of photos I took! It was amazing to be "up close and personal with so many wonderful wild animals!!! We LOVED it!
This is the biggest and best of the four game parks.
Hlane means "wilderness" and it really is!
This was just inside the gate.... (?!?) Bits and pieces of
backpacks and shoes, etc.... that the animals found!?
I LOVE these yellow birds!
One of the cool buildings.
This is a gift shop.
Our Safari vehicle (made by Toyota)
We took our Zone Leaders, Elder Powell from New Zealand
and Elder Feliciano from Brazil, who also live in Ezulwini.
Huts people can stay in....
These are nyalas. The females are a chestnut color with no horns
and the males have twisted horns and are a darker gray color.
This is a wildebeest
These are kudos with LONG horns.
This is an impala.
We could see the hippos backs but they never came
up out of the water ....
We watched these two white rhinos in the bushes
for awhile and then they walked across the road
right in front of us!!
They are an endangered species and are guarded.
We saw three lionesses and they were beautiful!
We went past them a couple of times but this was
my favorite shot....
They really WERE "Jumbo Elephants"!!
This is how close they were to us!!!
We watched these four elephants for the longest time! It was
AMAZING!! The two on the left are males and the two on the
right are females. They were HUGE and were not that far away
from our vehicle!
The last big animals we saw were the giraffes! MY FAVORITE!!
A fence divided us from where they were but it was still
This crocodile skin was near the reception area....
The waterholes were dry so we didn't see any crocs.
Rainy season has just begun....
The four of us.... We love these great missionaries!!
As we headed home down the highway we looked over
and there were the giraffes we saw on the other side of
the fence!! They were right along the highway!!
Some photos on the drive home....
