Funny Talking Animals - Footage from Safaris in Africa

Thursday, February 9th, 2012
  • Google+

You've gotta love it! What BBC has done is gather a bunch of great footage from safaris in Africa and added voice-overs to each clip, in order to give us greater 'insight' as to what is happening in the clip. SO FUNNY!

After I've finished nursing the stitch in my side, I'm going to watch another one. Classic.

LMFAO Friday: Overlanders are not the only party animals in Africa

Friday, November 6th, 2009
  • Google+

Elephants stumbling home drunk after a heavy night at the pub, monkeys falling flat on their faces. Watch this hilarous (and cute) video to see what happens when Africa's wildlife has one too many... With more than 100,000 view on YouTube, this video illustrates that gap year students on an overland tour, are not the only ones to have "one too many" in the wild savannahs of Africa.

Note: This video is NOT set-up! It is a well documented fact that elephants and many other African animals get drunk from eating fruit that falls to the ground and ferments under the hot African sun.

The fruit from the Amarula Tree is apparently an elephants favourite!

Enjoy - Andre.
