The Whole Family Heads to Kruger


We just got back from a three day trip to Kruger National Park with JJ's dad and stepmom. They came to South Africa and Mozambique for a holiday. After spending a week in Cape Town with JJ they headed down our way and the whole family headed for a couple of days of safari adventure.

Truth be told....Luka wasn't allowed to go on the safari. Young kids aren't allowed to ride the open air vehicles. It is kind of dangerous for a two year old to yell, "LOOK MAMA A LION." And since Luka doesn't really know how to contain himself yet it was a good idea for him to stay at the house with Elizabeth.

It is a good thing he stayed home...we saw about 15 lions in one day...and some elephants, wild dogs, crocodiles, zebras, monkeys, a leopard...it was a great viewing day. But don't feel bad for Luka he got to see his own share of animals right outside the house we rented. The house was in an area adjacent to Kruger National Park called Marloth Park and he saw elephants, implala, warthogs, zebras and baboons.

So I think everyone had a great time. You can see all the photos from our trip here.

Here is a sneak peak at some of the snapshots....this lion was right next to our "open" vehicle. I was so freaking scared.


This was the house that we stayed in...
