One day we drove to a lake to see the thousands of flamingo’s, it was beautiful but the stench was something I’ll never forget !!! On the beach were death flamingo’s rotting away and also plenty of carcasses, on top the stench of their excrements….it was a smell I never experienced before and the heath made it all worse of course but the views were breathtaking (as well as the stench !!!)

ART. YOU COULD BUY ALL THE ANIMALS YOU SAW ON SAFARI, IN WOOD OR IN STONE, VERY SMALL OR VERY LARGE,I WANTED A MONKEY IN WOOD BUT THAT WAS THE ONE ANIMAL THEY DID NOT MAKE, WHEN I ASKED WHY THEY SAID THAT MAKING MONKEYS BROUGHT BAD LUCK, BUT I KEPT LOOKING FOR A WOODEN MONKEY AND ON OUR LAST DAY I FOUND ONE, IT WAS NOT DISPLAYED LIKE THE OTHER ANIMALS BUT IT WAS HIDDEN IN A SHED AND WHEN SOMEONE HEARD I WAS LOOKING FOR A WOODEN MONKEY HE WENT TO A SHED ON THE BEACH AND GAVE IT TO ME, I WAS OVER THE MOON WITH IT !

  1. Fantastic photos! I think that first photo of the flamingoes is worth the stench, easy for me to say! And I like your wooden monkey very much!

    • thank you ! it were not only the flamingo’s that smelled bad, in fact the whole savannah smelled like a public toilet ! I expected a lot of fresh air over there but when you see how many animals there are and they all have to poo and pee so…..no the smell was something I didn’t expect but the rest was fabulous ofcourse !!!

  2. Such gorgeous photos. I like the way you didn’t gloss over the smell of the flamingos. The baby hyena is surprisingly cute (from a distance!) You must have had a wonderful time!

    • It was indeed the time of my life ! It weren’t only the flamingo’s that had a bad smell, the whole savannah smelled like poo and pee, I thought it would smell nice, lots of fresh air and that but no, the air didn’t smell fresh, but when you see all those animals, hundreds and hundreds you know why the savannah smell’s ofcourse !
