Safari Adventure

So let's just say you are driving in rural Africa and somehow lose the map you are following?  What might you get?

Well, if you are anything like us, a true adventure!  Grass taller than your car, logs to hack through, dry riverbeds, deep ravines, acacia thorns and a few animal sightings were all part of our adventure as we made our way to safari.  Our 60 km drive through the bush was nerve wracking, a bit crazy and something we would never suggest to anyone!

Still, through the grace of God, a lot of prayer and David's steady hand on the car, we made it safely through our unplanned adventure to the safari lodge without any major issues. At the lodge, we were met by the first of many elephants we would see on our trip.

The next day, we entered Ruaha National Park.  Our day was full of sightings of lion, elephants, hippos, giraffes, impala and other African wild life. 

Not to mention, these cute kids...

God's creation never ceases to amaze and we are truly thankful for the memories made on safari...even the memories from our crazy adventure to get there!  
(Thankfully, we were able to recover the map and had a less adventure filled return trip.)
