Photo Blog: Quench your thirst for a SafariNovember 28, 2017
“Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.”
There’s a certain type of thirst that just can’t be quenched by water. It’s a thirst for travel; for adventure; and for new experiences. It’s a burning desire within to escape the routine of everyday life – even if just for a short while. Ideally, we’d all be able to hop on a plane and jet off to some exotic location every time we get ‘itchy feet’, however, that’s just simply not the reality for most people. Rather, trips of a lifetime can take weeks, months or even years of planning and saving. So, while we wait for our turn to journey off on a thrilling safari through Africa, here are some wildlife photos to temporarily ‘quench your thirst’ for a safari.
A baby elephant that hasn’t yet learned how to use his trunk at Ghoha Hills in Botswana. A fully grown adult elephant can drink up to 200 litres of water every day. Photo by Ghoha Hill Savuti Lodge:
After travelling long distances to reach the Masai Mara plains, these wildebeest are in need of a good drink. They drink approximately 8 – 12 litres of water every 1 to 2 days. Photo by Patrick Shah:
Burchell’s Zebra taking a dip and a drink in the Mara River. Zebras can easily drink up to 20 litres at a time. Photo by Patrick Shah:
Hippos spend the majority of the day in water so it’s not surprising that they drink over 200 litres of water every day. Photo by Patrick Shah:
Just like your typical house-cat that will drink out of everything but it’s water bowl, this lioness was spotted drinking from a puddle in Uganda’s Murchison Falls National Park. Usually lions will drink between 2 – 4 litres of water every day, but can go for several days without drinking if necessary. Photo by Patrick Shah:
