That was one crazy Wildebeest, he ran around like a maniac it was quite entertaining.

I know they are not the most attractive animal but I found it odd being a herd species he was alone, I even asked why he was while attending the Africa Trek Safari and the lady seemed clueless as to why there was only one.

I suppose you're right, but I think they have a lot of personality. But I don't get the guys who whine about getting okapis instead of zebra or giraffe, so what do I know?

Poor guy. Maybe he was galloping around looking for another wildebeast. Although actually I've seen pictures of a single gnu in a herd of Ankole Cattle in other safari parks, so it could be that usually works out pretty well. I like to hope so, anyhow. Grazing herd animals of different species will often hang out together in the wild, so why not?

I wouldn't complain about any animal view there, although I think it would be incredible if they had a predator view. It would be amazing to see a pride of lions just laying around!

As for what I think is the gift shop, how does one protect the Giraffe figurines when traveling home? Do they come with a cylindrical shipping / travel case of some sort?

Thank you! I just used a p&s Canon powershot A495 I really liked it for day light pictures but I had a lot of trouble getting the indoor/night pictures

I don't know how they wrap the giraffe figurines. I know when I've bought coffee cups before they really wrapped them good with a lot of paper and tape.

I think this might be my last AKL pic I'll keep looking to see if I have more

I'm loving these pictures! The more pictures I see of AKL, the more excited I am to stay there. 7 1/2 months to go!
