Botswana Safari

Yesterday, October 12th, we went to Zimbabwe's bordering country Botswana for our Safari and Boat ride. I can not believe the amazing animals we saw during this trip! We managed to see MANY Giraffes, Impalas, Elephants and Hippo's. Also saw two lion and a leopard! We were unable to take Zeke since he was two young so he stayed back with his aunts and uncles from Zimbabwe. Let me tell you as much as I do trust my family it is still hard to leave your child behind in a different country with no way of contact until we got back! ( He ended up having a fun day swimming and playing in sand)

I am unable to post any pictures on this site, will try again once I'm back in Harare and can use a computer.

Today we will be going white water rafting. This was one of the only things I said I would NOT do.. but here I am ugh. I will be leaving my phone behind so only pictures taken will be from our GoPro.

The weather is next to perfect here. The mornings and nights are around 70 degrees and during the day around 90-95. I could not handle the mosquitos here though. We have to sleep inside mosquito nets because they are so bad at night. We have been sharing one Queen size bed with our two kids so they don't get bit. I've had no sleep and for the past few days and I've had to get up at 3-4am almost everyday. We have only had one sleep in day since Zimbabwe.
