Well, we just returned from a wonderful trip to the Gorongosa Game Park. It is the first time we have done a "tourist" thing in Mozambique and it was wonderfully refreshing. It is about a 2 hour drive away so we headed off yesterday before lunch. We checked into our cabanas upon arrival and then headed off driving ourselves on safari to see some animals. We have had several friends go and not see anything other than antelope but we prayed before we left. On our drive we were able to see MANY different animals including impala, wilderbeest, kudu, waterbuck, elephants, many beautiful birds, warthogs, two types of monkeys, baboons, and mongoose type animals and a beautiul sunset over the savannah. We made it back to the gate just in time (5:55 pm) for the 6 o'clock closing. We then had a lovely dinner in the open, thatched dining room and headed off to our cabanas for bed. We woke up at 5:30 am, had breakfast and headed off again into the wild to try and see some lions. We were so blessed as this morning we were able to add several more sightings of the animals already mentioned and we saw three lions. FANTASTIC! What a fun time we had and we are so grateful we were able to spend this special time with our family visiting from the USA. Hope you enjoy some of the photos we took. Isn't God creative?
