Peyton and Alex
We started the day with an early breakfast at 5:30 AM. We boarded the bus and set off on our safari. We saw a variety of African wild life, including zebras, giraffes, topis, water bucks, hippos, impala, cape buffalo, and a diverse selection of birds. Although we expected the ride to last five hours, we unexpectedly arrived back at the hotel at 4:00 in the afternoon. Though the ride was bumpy, we were all excited about the animals we got to see. After a quick rinse off, everyone jumped into the pool. A game of boys vs girls pool basketball broke out. (The girls won J) After swimming, everyone shared their stories under the stars, bringing the group closer than ever. An outdoor dinner was served celebrating the huge strides the leaders had made over the last couple of weeks.
