    In 1995, my dad was working in Zimbabwe and my family had the opportunity to spend Christmas with him there. I was 12.

    We went on a Safari that had a walking tour. We were able to get fairly up close and personal with a lot of the animals including giraffes, antelope, etc. We got a little too close to a group of Cape Buffalo (yes, part of the Big 5) and were forced to climb trees as they chased us.

    Our guide created a distraction in the field, and had the three buffalo chase him in order to protect us, the tourists in the trees. He returned 30mins later, sweaty, but okay and confident that he lost them somewhere.

    We made our way back to the lodge, a little shaken, but with a great family vacation story!

      Thanks for sharing that story – exciting & scary all at the same time. In Sabi Sands [South Africa] we did a walking tour but we didn’t have any incidents [phew] it was a little unnerving and great experience to get out of the truck.

    I just saw http://storyofbing.com which had such safari sightings, it’s really exciting from what I see in these photos. Your experience must be really memorable and it’s just difficult to use words to describe the exhilaration and excitement!!! Makes me want to travel more. The previous time I went to Cape Town (I never thought of stepping foot into SA yet), we didn’t have a chance to do a safari trip unfortunately. I must go back to SA!

    There are not many posts/blogs about Zimbabwe. But from your pictures it seems like the country is really worth a visit. I like the photo of elephants crossing the road.

    There’s no place with animals like Africa. There’s nothing so exciting and calming to sit at a fire while listening to the sounds of the night. Jackals calling, bush babies calling each other, crickets,……I was fortunate enough to be born in Africa and lived there for 49 years.

    Amazing photos! Love the check lists. Also giraffes in my opinion are one of the best looking animals ever…just look at those over-sized ears and nubs on the top of their heads!

    I know it is gross, but interesting….right?

    Though all these shots are remarkable, my favorites are the very first one (with the guide and the rifle) and the silhouette of the giraffe with the sun coming through the trees. Very well done.
