I woke up this morning feeling much better after the long days I’ve been having. The place I am staying has no phones, no TV, no electricity, and only hot water from a tank on the roof that is heated by the sun. It’s a big adjustment, but the African plains are very beautiful.

I woke up right before the sun came up. I walked out in front of the cabin to see a few elephants in front of me. There was a thin fence keeping them back. I don’t know what I was thinking but I walked up to them and was only 10-12 feet away. The big male with giant tusks stomped his feet and was pawing at the ground to charge. A person ran over to me and told me to back away or he would run right through the fence and kill me. I don’t know why I thought it was safe. Maybe too many trips to the zoo and you just get desensitized or something. I now realize how dumb of an idea it was.

This morning was the first time on the trip that I had an extra hour or two to look for animals. It was really cool to see hyenas and wild baboons. Lots of wildebeest and cape buffalo. I didn’t see any lions this trip, I guess they were deep in the bush.

I better go, I have to pack up and start making the way back to Nairobi so I can fly out tonight.
