Today I am sitting on the outdoor bar here at croc valley campground in Zambia. Across you see some hippos sunning. There are large crocs out there too. My tent is on the bank of the Zambezi river a few feet awsy.

We had elephants and hippos wander through camp last night. Some thought a leopard was in the brush. There are a hundreds monkeys, some  above me right now.

We went into the South Luanga National Park on a walking safari at daybreak. We had an armed park ranger due to the close presence of lion and leopard. We will have a night game drive this evening. Soon we take a 2 day canoe trip down the river.

Hello!  While I wrote this a monitor lizard strolled by casually looking for insects and whatever else they eat. It was not 10 feet away.
