Big 5 in 48

Both of our last two visitors (JJ and David) have been our first two visitors to see the Big 5 during their stay. The Big 5 is a big deal in safari lingo, and it refers to lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhino. All safari guests aim to see the Big 5, but most are usually foiled on the rhino and/or leopard. David, however, had some epic wildlife viewing luck during his visit, seeing the Big 5 in his first 48 hours in Kenya! This included seeing a leopard with a kill and a rhino spotted from a hot air balloon. Not bad!
