A Journey Through Africa

Disney's Animal Kingdom, on a school field trip

Once we passed the sign we felt as though we were really in Africa!

The jeep was very bumpy and made picture taking a challenge

I spy the first animal... Do you know what it is?

A Rhinoceros

Cooling off on a hot day

He looks happy, doesn't he?

Love those long horns!

Straight out of the camera

The best side ;-)

Shadow Shot

and my favorite..... Do you know what it is?

baby giraffes

Mom was not too far away

She is obviously used to people

I think this is my favorite image of the trip

I can not believe the Melody was able to guess from the pictures that I posted the other day that  our field trip was to Animal Kingdom!  (Melody and I went to high school together.)  She is a great writer and has the cutest daughter with a head full of curls.  She is also a supermom that balances being a teacher, with fun outings with her family.

Rhinos and elephants make VERY LARGE shadows!

This is similar to our San Diego's Wild Animal Park. It sure is a great way to see these huge African animals in a more suitable environment than in a zoo. They are such amazing creatures.
You have some very nice captures of your time there.

The baby giraffes are my favorite, too.

Great safari pics!!

Wow, What a cool place!! I wish FL was a little closer to MO!

It was that blue lattice work. And kind of the cooler on the back of the safari. We went to Animal Kingdom in 2007 when I ran the marathon down there. I remember thinking that Disney doesn't miss a detail with the water cooler thing. And seriously, the blue lattice work for some reason gave it away.

Love the pictures! I can't wait until I have more time to learn how to use PSE.

Oh wow that is an awesome shots. Now if I am going to take a tour with that little car I should be in the middle hehehe. I am scared of anything big and who crawls. Thanks for sharing happy Monday.

Into wild places

from ravenous beasts.
