Kristen Bell’s Epic Trip to Africa

Kristen Bell’s Epic Trip to Africa

Can we talk about the Africa. They made this video that went
viral the Toto song Africa.>>Yes.>>You went to Africa.>>Yes.
>>You put this video up.>>Yep.
>>It’s like over five million views or something. Maybe more, I don’t know.>>I wonder why. Jack’s in the tub.>>So I have to ask you where you were,
cause Portia and I went to Africa last summer and
we did not see a field full of giraffe. We didn’t see a lot of
the things that you saw. Where were you?>>We were in Tanzania at a place
called the Grumeti Reserve, which is sort of right
next to the Serengeti. Well, and we also hiked into the
Virunga Forest with the silverbacks and that’s where we got all of
the footage of the gorillas, but we really just did Africa I guess.>>How long were you there?>>We were there for two weeks. It was right before our kids were born and
we really wanted to like, everyone wants too take a big trip when you’re young, and
we just did it and we had so much fun. But it was the rainy season
which they tell you in Africa, you may or may not see animals, and
we were the only people at our hotel. The only guests checked in, so all of the
guides were in the lobby everyday going like anybody want to go out, I mean
we could like explore more stuff, and you guys can get out of the van I guess,
and just kind of look around. We were like, yeah.>>It’s really, really good. If you haven’t seen it, you should. I guess you google Kristen and
Dax in Africa.>>Sure.
>>See what’s on top.>>See what you get.>>I don’t know. Who knows what we’re gonna get,
we should Google it and see what comes up.>>[LAUGH]
>>So the kids are now, you went before the kids were born-
>>Yeah.>>Delta is?>>14 months, yeah. One and three.>>And Lincoln is three?>>Yeah, she’ll be three this week, yeah.>>And, boy that’s a lot for you to have,
a three year old and a one year old.>>Yeah, you know it’s a circus.>>Yeah.
>>It’s a circus for sure. I mean, I love it. I love it.>>Whenever you start with that
there’s gonna be something->>[LAUGH]>>I mean, I love it.>>I mean, I love it. I love them. But you know what, I-
>>[LAUGH]>>You know where we could do better? Why does everyone wake up screaming?>>[LAUGH]
>>Why don’t they tell you that? They’re gonna wake up screaming for
like for years.>>[LAUGH]
>>You wake up, the moment you wake up, you’re in like a horror movie cuz everyone
in the house is screaming bloody murder. And I’m like why, they don’t get up and make your coffee,
I kinda thought maybe they would.>>[LAUGH]
>>Or at least, when they get older, right?>>Uh-huh.
>>And they don’t, they wake up screeching and screaming. And so, I’m just like it’s just a lot. I’m auditorily sensitive. It’s a lot in the morning
to have someone like, ahh! First thing.>>I don’t think that’s normal.>>[LAUGH]
>>God. I don’t.>>[LAUGH]
>>And there’s a lot of people here that would
say that kids don’t wake up screaming, you’re doing something wrong.>>I’m doing it wrong.>>Yeah.
>>All right, I’ll figure it out, I’ll figure it out.>>Do you know,
are they sleeping on a bed of nails, or?>>But you are supposed to
chain them to the bed, right?>>Yes, chaining them to the bed,
that’s how they don’t walk around and hurt themselves.>>Of course.>>So motherhood has changed
you in what way would you say. I mean besides being partially deaf now?>>What?
I don’t know, I’ve gotten real
comfortable giving advice. I find that I’m so into health food and
just healthy living that my girlfriends and my friends, I feel like are a little
bit over it cuz I’ll walk into a room and be like, you guys does
everyone know about cellinium. Because it’s an antioxidant we all
need to be dosing up on, and it’s got. Brazil nuts,
everybody got a can of Brazil nuts? Or like, a couple weeks ago I was
on a kick about micro greens, cuz they’re very good for you. And my friends were like,
we know, we all read the Internet.>>[LAUGH]
>>And I was like, okay, nobody needs my advice, that’s good.>>Brazil nuts are good for you. I agree with you.>>Yeah, they’re very good for you.>>Yeah, supposed to have them every week.>>Yes.
>>That’s right. I’m not even a mother and I go around
telling people about Brazil nuts.>>[LAUGH]
>>I mean->>Yeah. I’m just annoying without the children.>>Well maybe that has nothing to
do with my motherhood then maybe.>>Maybe it’s just annoying
trait that we both share. Yeah, you talk about nuts and I know them. I really do.

About the author


  1. Can you not say Africa properly, I know it's the american way to say it but since it's our continent please say it properly

  2. Brazil nuts are HIGH in radiation which is pretty bad. Bananas have radiation too but only a little, not enuff to harm you.

  3. Oh my God now I want Brazil nuts. The kids waking up screaming that is normal. Here with me it's a morning ritual. No screaming means something when horribly WRONG :-)!!

  4. GOSH! I adore Kristen!! She makes me giggle every time I've seen her in interviews. She's one of those that I'm friends with in my head!!


  6. We did Africa!? Like it's a small island!?! There are more than 50 countries in Africa and I'm sure you didn't cover them in two weeks!

  7. Do you love Buttery Soft leggings that are Like LuLaRoe?? Then check out Legging Army. Cute patterns in all sizes!!!

  8. It's a shame Ellen is great – but she lost a huge % of her viewership due to her "only the left is right" views….

  9. I know most people commented on it but it's really frustrating to hear people say Africa as if it's one big country! it's a CONTINENT!

  10. all these Africans on here in their feelings bag, making more of this statement than what it is. Let it go

  11. from jimmy Kimmel to ellen..please never talk about "africa"….its not a country..and if you did Africa you'd know they're humans as well with beautiful cultures….we love you ellen but please say the country in Africa you visited….we don't have a single president for the continent

  12. You guys rock but I couldn't get past you guys talking like Africa is a country. There are over 50 countries in Africa…Am a Nigerian and all this countries in Africa have different way of life.. Pls take note. Love you Ellen 😍

  13. Holy crap! So many people commenting about Africa not being a country. People say they are going to Europe, just went to Europe, are visiting Europe, etc. No one gets all butthurt about that!
    Why? Because they were in Europe, just like Kristin was in Africa! People know both of these places are Continents, just most people aren't that specific as to where they are going. USA is huge as well and most people don't give an exact place to where they are going when they go there. They are just going to the states. I feel it's very normal to generalize where you are going and not give specific details. Anyone from Africa here complaining about it is just way to sensitive!!!!!!

  14. What about me I am allgeric to Brazilnuts and Hazelnuts, its a sad world when I found out because I couldnt keep having nutella!!

  15. I don’t know why everyone is so sensitive. In the beginning of the interview, Kristen was very specific about where they were. She even gave the name of the hotel. I think she was just saying that they really enjoyed themselves being outdoors, around the animals and near the Serengeti. They had fun! That’s all that matters.

  16. Any white person wanting to go to Africa is crazy. These days the white people are being raped, robbed & killed. Look at all the white farmers being tortured & murdered. Ellen & Kristen did you know anything about that? If you didn't, then your ignorant!!!!!

  17. oh no ellen. thats very very normal. lol screaming the second they open their eyes. actually before opening their eyes

  18. I'd wake up but pretend to be asleep for a few minutes. Once you wake up and make eye contact, that mouth ran non-stop til bedtime.

  19. The difference between saying "I went to Europe " and "I went to Africa" is that European countries have much similar culture, climate, language, art and so on. Africa has more than 3000 languages and tribes. And there are a lot of people who don't realize Egypt, Morocco, Libya and other Arab countries are in Africa. I don't hear people saying "I went to Asia", may be they know Asia is made up of different countries. But Africa is more diverse than any continent.

  20. i don't get why Ellen constantly gets hate comments whenever she refers to Africa as if it's just one place. it's plain that she just doesn't know a lot about it or doesn't have much interest on it except for when she goes on a trip. i mean she doesn't seem to be insulting anybody nor dumbing down any ethnicity. people need to double up on chill pills, sometimes.

  21. I thought I was the only one bothered by this. It’s good to see that I’m not. It’s annoying that SO many people still refer to Africa as a country when it’s an entire CONTINENT 🙄😒😑. Kristen and her husband went to Tanzania which is IN Africa smh. It’s just like when people see those "Feed the Children" commercials and think that every single person living in Africa lives in grass/mud huts and has no access to clean water or shoes. This is what perpetuates the narrative to the rest of the world that Africa is 50% third world dirt (literally) poor village people and 50% Lion King safari with nothing else going on smh

  22. Oh Ellen it’s normal. 2 of my 3 kids to wake crying. I don’t have these waking up blissfully happy children. It’s tough

  23. Could have at least titled the video a little more intelligent. Africa is a continent, could say the country . Every country isn’t the same .

  24. You have to be specific when you’re talking about Africa. There are so many countries in Africa. You lot say Africa like it’s one country.

  25. I here she think about not doing her show anymore she will be truly misted she show are very much so appreciated she cares

  26. How come the trip was right before the kids were born (0:46) but in the video she isn't pregnant at all? I just googled if she's adopted children and apparently she hasn't

  27. having two kids of the same gender so close together seems cool cause once they're older, they'll probably just be best friends and do everything together

  28. Yes. My kids wake up screaming. It's normal. It's wake up to little people demanding something and/or everything. You're doing it right… 🤣🤣🤣

  29. Guys when she said they did Africa she was referring to the song that they did in the video which is Africa by Toto

  30. I love her shiny personality and her ability to be real. She shows a great balance of celebrity and normalcy that I feel is a huge benefit to the world. She's a positive role model, speaks openly about her mental health and is breaking down the barriers of those topics that makes people feel better about their circumstances.
