On the way to the safari we were out in the middle of no where and our driver was in contact with another driver. We caught on to this so were not surprised when all of a sudden a big white car was just barely visible ahead and our driver quickly pulled off the road. The white car was nose to nose with us in seconds. Our mission president and wife and daughter and her husband were on their way back from the safari. The other senior couple in our car were good friends from Alaska but had moved three years ago and it was a treat for them to see younger family members.
We stood at the side of the road for over twenty minutes visiting about their safari. They had just seen a leopard that morning. We were excited for them and for us. As we were loading up to leave there was talk about all the frogs they had seen at the lake. So the picture above is not a bunch of locus as it seems at first glance but a bunch of frogs under the boat.
missionaries , the seniors from Sri Lanka had taken this trip a few weeks earlier and emailed general tips and info. They liked the boat for a change, quieter and smoother than the bouncing jeep. We had signed up for this outing for the afternoon of our arrival and a jeep at six the next morning.
