Zambia #13 "Packy your Trunks"


Packy your Trunks

Howdy yet again,
We got up early on Friday and started the 6 hour drive to Livingstone, which is by the border of Zambia, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. The roads we much nicer than I would have thought but there were many semi-truck wrecks that we passed. The area we drove through was mostly flat with large rounded hills, the trees were small and sparse but the grass was becoming much more green with the recent rains. On Saturday we traveled across the Botswana border and hired a safari company to take us out in the Chobe National Park. We rode on a small boat for the morning and in a jeep in the afternoon. With the recent rains most of the animals like Leopards, Lions, Wildebeests and Buffalo have moved south into Greener pastures so we didn’t get to see any of those animals. Chobe is called the Elephants playground, there are over 30,000 Elephants in the park. Here are a few of the animals we did see that day….

The Hippos are the best but they would try to attack the boat every time we got anywhere near them. I still don’t believe how aggressive the Hippos were.

These two Giraffes were fighting over something, I got some good video of the fight. We saw many more animals but these were the most exciting ones. We did have a run in with an Elephant that didn’t like us, we had to reverse away at high speed. Usually the animals ignored the truck or boat that we were in.

Our congregation here has the Circuit Overseer visit this week, it was very up building. Also on Friday we got a package of goodies from my Parents. They sent it from Hawaii…literally half way around the world! That was a great treat to be sure. Well this is my once a month work Saturday and lunch is almost up. So I will run.
Next email will be about Victoria Falls…..
Thanks for listening to me ramble on.
