Read the online blog about a trip to a wildlife park and say whether the following sentences are true or false.

Do you remember I said my family had booked a holiday in Kenya? Well, they did and we had the most fantastic holiday. Let me tell you all about it. First of all the colours of the countryside, of the sky, of the whole way of life. Everyone told me I'd love the people and I did. Perhaps the best part was visiting the nature parks. In one of them we had a slightly frightening experience with a tiger. No one, not even our guide, had told us how enormous they can be. We were driving slowly through the park and stopped near a waterhole to photograph the animals drinking. There were giraffes and even a small elephant. Suddenly we heard a strange sound near the car and the huge face of a tiger appeared at the window nearest me! The guide told us to keep calm. He said the worst thing we could do was scream as that would frighten the animal. He said the tiger would circle the car and then leave. We all waited holding our breaths for what seemed ages. In the end the guide was right, the tiger got bored with us and walked away. I'll post more tomorrow...
A: 1. The blogger said his family wanted to visit South Africa.
B: 2. The blogger said he really enjoyed the holiday.
C: 3. The blogger's friends had told him he wouldn't like Africa.
D: 4. In one nature reserve the blogger had a frightening incident with a wild animal.
E: 5. The blogger said the group had a guide with them.
F: 6. The guide told them to get out of the car as soon as possible when the tiger appeared.
G: 7. The guide explained what would happen and he was right.
