Listen to me win the trip on the air, as well as our bit where we discuss the Shark Cage diving on the air from the Bakubung Lodge. It also includes recovered footage from the Elephant attack!
Safari Part 1 (7 min)
Here it is, the infamous edited footage I kept talking about. This is my first complete montage. (Be sure to watch in HD!) In this video you will see Baboons, Zebra, Impala, Hippos, and Elephants. Look for the baby elephant getting yelled at by a big elephant, and then running back to his momma.
Safari Part 2 (9 min)
Here is the second half of our Safari footage (be sure to watch in HD!)
Includes the monkey, dung beetle, rhino fight, antelope fight, wildebeast, warthog, and the best lion footage we could muster.

Winning entry video
This is the entry that won the trip, in its entirety.
Believe it or not, our tour guide’s name was Mohammed Ali. He lived up to his name on the Winery tour. Our bus was blocking the entrance to the road, construction prevented us from pulling out, another car tries to get in, but obviously can’t. After about 5 minutes, the car starts honking and gesturing to our van. Mohammed jumps out, and tells ‘em to Bugger Off. Way to go Mohammed, thanks!
We just got Oscar back! He was very excited to see us. He had a blast staying with Maggie’s folks, but now he’s home and playing with all the stuff we got him. Once he’s off to nap, I will start working on these videos. I have hours of footage to go through so keep checking over the next week or so for more videos.
I’ve posted the group shots and other posed photos in the Africa Wrap Up gallery. I may find some photos from earlier that I never uploaded and stick them in there too.
We went ahead and booked the Saturday Morning game drive to see if there was anything else we hadn’t spotted yet. Seeing some of the animals in the sunlight was amazing, plus a variety of deer things we hadn’t seen yet.
We finally got a checklist of all the animals in the park, I’ll try to go through and correctly identify my pics (at least once) Fifth Game Drive pics
So much happened on our evening Game Drive tonight, I don’t know where to begin. Ok, my favorite photos I got tonight were of the baby elephant hanging out with his mom. Crazy adorable.
But that doesn’t begin to get into tonight’s adventure. First we saw some lions, then we were chased by an elephant. It was very dark so I don’t have a ton of video and pictures for these, and I have to go to bed now to get up for our very last game drive.
Just know that after I arrive back in the US, I’ll have more photos, and tons of video to share. I’ve only begun to share the video I’ve shot. I don’t have my editing software here in Africa, so I’ve just been shooting you those quick updates, but there are tons more videos to come. Enjoy the pics from tonight’s Game Drive.
Scheduled to be live from Africa on Thur and Friday (11/12 - 11/13)
