The team has arrived safely at Paraa Safari Lodge in Murchison Falls National Park! We started our day in Kampala with worship and headed out soon after it was over. We stopped for lunch along the way where many of us enjoyed a grilled cheese and chipati chips with guacamole or salsa. It was a nice change of pace!
The ride was extremely bumpy. We entered the park from the north - something we had never done before. Once we hit the park, we were able to see antelope, elephants, giraffes, and even a hyena. However, nothing struck fear in any of us like the 4-inch long, winged creature that came in through a window and made numerous appearances during the rest of the ride. It's true - Jerry Mayo CAN scream like a girl!
We had a fabulous dinner and are getting ready for bed. Early wake-up call in the morning. We will have the chance to go on a game drive and later, a boat ride to the base of the falls. Blessed to get to enjoy God's creation together; it should be a wonderful day!
