We spent the day at Chaminuka yesterday. Its a private game reserve about 30km outside of Lusaka. We were glad to have the opportunity to take the children, as ever since we talked about moving to Zambia they have talked about the animals we would see.
It was a nice clear day and it was good to be together as a family.
We had a great lunch there as well. Last time we were there with our friends Wil and Terry, we ate kudu. This time they served Impala. I ate Impala steaks and they were really good! The kids also loved the meat ans said the lunch was also a highlight of the day.
There is a village of huts on the drive there.
All the boys brought binoculars
We also got to walk up to the elephants and touch them.
I thought this was a cool picture, as the elephant was flapping his ears
We saw Zebras
We spotted them in a far distance and the safari driver got off the main rode and we were driving through the tall grass, on the hunt to see some zebras!
It was really neat. Last time we had only seen them from far away and it was dry and dusty. This time we got to get up close to see them.
We had a nice day, and I told James it was a nice thought as we were driving home in the dark that we were going back to our house this time. Not to stay in a hotel, as we did last time we were here on visit, but in our own place.
