Nadine: Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia

by in Blog

Tents, no. Rough, no. Tents and rough is what I thought when my parents said we were going to a bush camp. But when we got there we had giant cabins and two pools. One of the coolest things was fishing for tiger fish. It was so fun and the people were extremely nice. For the first day I was having a great time. Then they introduced me to the scorpions and milipeads. After that I did not like it as much, but I still thought it was amazing. Our guide’s name was Prisly. He took us fishing almost every day. First he would take his to a spot to catch bait fish with little worms he had trapped the day before. Then he would cut the bate into filets and we would move to a spot to catch tiger fish. It was so cool. There were elephants all around us. There was even a hippo that really liked the camp and his name was Dexter. There were more hippos in the water and all around the camp. We also saw an awesome pride of lions. There were a lot of little lions that would play with each other while the mothers would hunt. We had an amazing time looking at all of the animals and talking to the staff. One of the staff members taught me how to set a table with all of the things in the right place. We had a really good time and I can’t wait to go back.

    Hi Nadine,

    Well, if you do go back, can I stow away in your suitcase? The pictures you all published are too good to be true. This place is too beautiful for words. I want to hear all about it; please let me buy you pizza and a Coke, and spend the afternoon telling me the whole story!

    I just got your postcard. It was delivered to the wrong people, but finally made it to me. Thank you so much for thinking of me. I showed it to my class (the front of it, anyway) then hung it on the wall in my room… While we were taking miserable STAAR tests, you were on safari… you lucky little beast! I suppose you are at the orphanage now. I hope to hear all about that too. I am going to look up the camp where you stayed. PLease keep writing, I follow you wherever you go!
    Lots of love,
    Ms. C

    Nadine, I love your little stories! And the pictures are wonderful, I can’t believe you saw a baby leopard! And giraffes! And such wonderful birds, and all of it. I hope the scorpions and millipedes leave you alone and that you are all using sunscreen, especially on your face! Tell your mom I said Penny Jo will be really upset if y’all don’t use it.
    Love and miss u,
    Aunt Bonny
