The Mission President and his wife had family visiting in March and while they were here they planned to visit the safari park here in Angola. It isn’t well stocked, but it is large, and hopefully eventually the animals that left during the war start coming back. As it is there is one elephant, some giraffes, and a whole lot of monkeys and antelope. We decided to visit with them as we hadn’t ever gone, and we felt like seeing some attractions in Angola seemed like a good idea! So we took off on the 2 hour drive to the park. When we arrived we went to get a truck and found out that we had missed the next tour by 10 minutes… so we had a good 2 hour wait ahead of us. We ate lunch and visited with everyone. There was mother church family that was there, they luckily, had little kids, so all the kids entertained each other. Very nice! We had a good time, and saw some pretty good animals. It was nice company and fun to play with church friends again, it has been a while!
One of the whole group! We all crammed in the same truck together!
