We took a dip in the pool overlooking the Zambezi River, and then moved on to our next adventure: a safari through the smallest game park in Zambia, close to our hotel. The adventurous trio. . .
Bok (or buck) of all varieties. This one is an Impala
Giraffe, of course. . .
Couldn't resist this guy. . .
Baboons. . .our flight's landing was delayed because of mischievous monkeys!
Zebra (the "e" has a short, not long sound in Afrikkans)
The elusive Guinea fowl, who scattered each time our jeep approached.
About 8-10 elephant crossed the road in a parade, coming from the river at dusk. The perfect time
to see wildlife!
What a treat to see the white (or wide-mouthed) rhino, which were
sequestered in a fenced off area for safety. We were yards from them, out in
These guards were monitoring them 24/7. . .
Years ago, these were the barracks of officers who guarded the entire park. . .
Now it's the hideout for the monitor lizard!
The day ended with a brilliant sunset . . .but not before we returned to our 'gated community'.
Stay tuned for our continuing adventure: Victoria Falls and the border crossing . . .
