June 23, 2012 Uganda: Safari

Yesterday we had a “fun” outing outside of Watoto and their work. We went on a safari! Two months ago I would never have dreamed I’d be in Africa right now on a safari!

Our guides all couldn’t get over our luck… before we even got up to the park ranger we saw hyenas (I guess this is incredibly rare!) and a pair of lions. Amazing. It was such an incredible way to spend a morning – even if it meant getting up at 3am to be there for sunrise!

And while we were eating lunch, we spotted a herd of elephants from the balcony – so cool!

And then while we waited for the ferry to cross the Nile, we had a few friends waiting with us.

This rascal stole a young girl’s bag and dug out a jar of peanut butter he devoured.

Then it was back to some of the most unbelievable “roads” (use that term loosely).

It was a long day – but amazing! Today is a day mostly “off” and catching up on rest. We start back up tomorrow!

Celebrating life and love,
