Part 7 continues with more photos that I though were worth sharing from our recent Safari trip.    You’ll find below photos from a wide variety of critters including Giraffes, Leopards, Rhinos, Cheetahs and a few birds.   After the photos, there’s a short video showing an adolescent Elephant greeting our vehicle…..
