Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! To get you in the holiday mood, here’s a reposting of a great little piece from our friends at The Bushcamp Company. I’d love to take credit for this, but I just can’t; they’ve got some geniuses working over there! Enjoy!

  • Twelve crowned cranes flying,
  • Eleven lovebirds perching,
  • Ten dogs a-hunting,
  • Nine ellie’s crossing,
  • Eight geese a-swimming,

  • Six giraffes a-dozing,
  • Five gold kudus!
  • Four waterbucks,
  • Three carmines,
  • Two lion cubs,
  • And a leopard in a bare tree!!
