The day we went on a safari was my favorite day out of my entire month abroad in South Africa. Being out in the open surrounded by wild animals and the picturesque landscape really put into perspective for me that I was in Africa. Many of the South African towns we visited had the same amenities and features as U.S. cities so being out in the country was a treat. My favorite animals by far were the rhinos. There were four all together: three sisters and one baby. I couldn’t believe how close our safari guide was able to get us to the animals. That day was a day I will never forget.
