Serengeti Safari

A while ago my boyfriend and I went to Centerparcs in Germany for a midweek and during our stay we went to Serengeti Park. I took hundreds of photos and really wanted to share some with you, so enjoy!

Arabian Oryx

This creature almost looks like a unicorn with its horns and its white body glowing in the sunlight. It was breath taking to see it walking through the trees.
Pygmy Goat
There was a little area where you could get out of your car and buy some food for the goats, donkeys and the cutest little pony. Which I of course couldn't refuse.
Shetland Pony
Just look at it. It was so tiny and cute. I love feeding animals.

Fallow Deer
There were also some deer walking around, which I was really excited about, because deer are one of my favourite animals. But sadly, they were to scared to come close to us and we couldn't feed them.

Dromedary Camel
I laughed so hard at these dromedaries. They were walking on the road like two drunk people, very slowly and swinging and swaying, unable to walk straight, having a great time and not noticing the car behind them which wanted to pass them. It was very funny.

Dama Gazelle
I have no idea what this animal is, but it's so cute. I'll ask my boyfriend, because he'll probably know what it's called.  

Ankole Longhorn
African Lion
We drove so closely past the lions which made it possible for me to take some amazing pictures of these wonderful creatures. I'd love to go on a real safari someday with a big camera and take beautiful pictures of wildlife. It is one of my many dreams and I could live it a little here.

White Tiger
White tiger, another animal on my long list of favourite animals. I mean, with so many animals on this world, how can you ever choose just one?

African Elephant
This was another area where you could get out of the car, but here you could watch the elephants. One was really close and I took some close up pictures of this mommy elephant and her baby.

Elephants are also on my list of favourite animals, because they are so social and sweet. If anyone ever says animals don't have feelings and emotions, they don't know elephants. I once read a story about an elephant who was raised by humans because it was wounded as a baby. When the elephant was healed and grown up they released her back into the wild. Two years or something later she returned with a baby, because she wanted to show her child to her "adoptive parents". So sweet. 

This elephant was trying to grab a sandwich with its trunk, but it was just out of reach. This upset her so she started throwing grass at my boyfriend. (Even though he was not the one who put the sandwich there)


Mendes Antelope
Don't these horns remind you of Maleficent?

Plains Zebra
And last but not least the zebra's. They were quite curious about our car and came really close to us. Which again resulted in some pretty pictures.

The Safari was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it and got to live a little of my dream. After the safari we went to Monkey World of Serengeti, which will be another blogpost, because I think these are way too much pictures for a blogpost already, but it was hard enough to decrease 300+ photos to only 32.
Serengeti Park is located in Hodenhagen, Germany. There's not only the safari, but there's also a part where they have monkeys where you can walk through their cages, there is a part with water rides and there is a part with normal rides. If you're ever nearby I really suggest to go there, because it's so much fun and nothing I've ever seen before. It is also possible to stay there overnight in the park-resort. For more information, here's the link to their website.
