Today was our African safari! After traveling the 1 1/2 hours to the game reserve, we ate lunch at our tented camp and settled into our tents. The view of the savanna from the tented camp was breathtaking. After lunch, we loaded up in our open-air safari trucks for a 4 hour game drive. We saw so many animals including elephant, zebra, monkey, wildebeest, water buffalo, hippo, crocodile, giraffe, wart hog, buzzard, impala, jackal, and more, but the lions remained evasive. We are praying that we can find simba tomorrow!
Dinner was a three-course spread and we got to see the bush babies who came around the camp once it got dark. We enjoyed a special time of fellowship around the camp fire after supper. We are excited for our 6AM game drive tomorrow!
*Thank you to Steven Swaffer for capturing the photos on the safari.
