Head to head with a hippo skull during our stay @sanbonasafari in South Africa! Watch our safari adventure on my newest highlight titled “Sanbona Reserve”. Not surprisingly in such a remote location, the internet is touch and go, so my story posted a bit out of order, but it’s a small price to pay for the incredible sights I’ve recorded since we arrived! From a herd of giraffes, tracking a female cheetah, to seeing hippos, this is one of the most interesting experiences of my life so far! I’ve managed to post our first day yesterday and I’ll post today’s insane adventures tomorrow! That makes sense, right? ? Enjoy! #familysafari #growingkidsgrowingfood #sanbonawildlifereserve #capetowndiary
