Sadly the safari ended on Day 7 :(

The full package of Safari pics is here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsk​BQKhLs (external link)

and if THOSE 690 photos don't satisfy your need for African Safari pics, there's always the trip from 2009: https://flic.kr/s/aHsj​nrHKr9 (external link)

Try not to get lost dreaming... I know I do, every time I revisit the pictures!
