Poolside with a Warthog for Photo Friday

Every family trip has those truly memorable moments that you talk about forever. Sometimes it’s the travel nightmares that make an entertaining story (producing smiles only in the back end), sometimes it’s an extraordinary experience that sticks in our minds, while on other occasions what we remember is those funny moments that aren’t big bang experiences, but a time when we witness something simple yet utterly foreign.


Like this moment on our family safari in Africa.

We were relaxing by the pool one afternoon at Kichwa Tembo in Masai Mara, Kenya and a big warthog came by for a drink in the pool.

Not your average poolside playmate! We got such a kick out of his proximity to the “No Diving” sign.


If only warthogs could talk! I’m sure there is a good story around the missing tusk.

  1. Definitely the funniest photo that I’ve seen today! I’ve had a soft spot for warthogs since the first time we watched Lion King.
