For a break to the falls....

It has been a bit quiet on this blog... The reason was that I took my 4 girls for a safari. I have been several times, in the past, to the game park, but the girls have never been there. I really wanted them to see the beauty of their own country, it was still holidays, Elias wanted to go with us and drive, so we went...
 This is lake Albert, where the river Nile comes through, at the back ground.

We went with the car on a small ferry to the other side of the river Nile, there we had a beautiful game ride. We saw many animals, the Lions were not found, they were resting in the bush, but we saw many other animals: different kind of deers, Buffelo's, Elephants, Monky's etc.

I think I liked the Giraff the most, there are many walking around and they are so gracious and friendly looking.
We could come out the car, there were no lions around!!
We stayed in a small family unit in a camping site. We enjoyed the nice meals there and the fellowship together. 
We went on a boat trip on the river Nile, I had Cathy all the time next to me, she likes to climb on everything. There are many Hippo's in the river and also many crocodiles, so better no swimming there! The boat trip showed us the water falls, it was beautiful!
The next day we went to the top of the falls.
It was great and impressive to see the mass of water going down. There were many rainbow's to see in the damp of the water and the sun shining throught it. They were very nice days, to be out together, before the new school year begins. Elias was a great driver, guide and friend! In Amecet was everything good, there were no sick children and no new children had come, so we are thankful for that.
