Safari Animal Checklist

Welcome to the wild side of Africa!

This is our ongoing list of wildlife encounters from our Trans Africa Rally adventures through South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Eswatini. As we share our journey, we’ll attempt to take you on a virtual safari through the diverse landscapes of Africa, where we encountered an array of fascinating creatures. From majestic elephants to elusive leopards, we’ll showcase the beauty and wonder of the animal kingdom. Please note that while some photos are our own, others are shared by fellow travellers we met along the way. 

As of May 8th, 2024, Elly’s most cherished memory was unexpectedly witnessing a rhino and its baby—a truly unforgettable experience capturing Africa’s wild beauty.
