watching the sun set in paradise. 🌅
i could get used to waking up in a place like this. 🌴
some elephants i’ll never forget. 🐘 captivated by the moments, colors, and textures of this place.
found out that giraffes are one of my favorite animals on this trip. 🦒 what’s your favorite?
taking a break from being on safari to explore the island of zanzibar. 🏝 one of the claims to fame of this island is that freddy mercury was born here!
morning bath on the serengeti. 👅 saw these cubs and their mom playing around, sunbathing, and getting ready for the day on top of these rocks early in the morning. like big kittens. 😁 - @hoopoesafari @kirurumuundercanvas
an elephant in kenya, framed by the highest free standing mountain in the world - mount kilimanjaro. 🏔 seen just at blue hour after a day with @hoopoesafari experiencing so many incredible animals and moments.
flamingos in pink. 🌸 got up before the sun rose and walked out on a shallow lake with an extremely muddy and slippery bottom. there, teams of flamingos found their breakfast and i got to stand with them and share in an infinite world of pink for a few seconds. - @hoopoesafari
being here in africa has made me appreciate how lucky i am to have the lifestyle and access to some of the most basic things we may otherwise take for granted, like clean drinking water, or access to healthcare. 💧 this really is a special place both for mindfulness of where we are in the world and especially how others are living. never take for granted the things around you and always ask yourself how you can help those less fortunate than you. - staying here at @kirurumuundercanvas has been amazing and watching the efforts the owners have been putting forth to help the local community is remarkable.
rule of threes. 🦒 absolutely incredible to see how the african sun creates an entirely new view of the wildlife as it gets low on the horizon. can you spot the birds on the back of the giraffes? it’s been such an amazing experience to see these animals in their natural habitat with @hoopoesafari
waking up with new friends. 🐘 this incredible creature crossed our path as we were heading deeper into the park and passed us with mount kilimanjaro starting to appear in the distance.
