My friend Yvonne, who has been my tour guide, brought me to a friend's house to show how her trees have been taken over by these creepily interesting flying rodents.
|When I first saw the trees, I thought they had large nests hanging from them. Turns out they are thousands of bats hanging upside down.|
|The bats take off every night at 6:15 p.m. and return around 3 a.m. They make a racket and the sky is blackened when they all take off. Their wings are translucent and when the moon is full and they are flying you can see right through them.|
Since arriving in Ndola, we've been told we should visit Nsobe Game Camp just south of us. I told Roger he needed to take a day off, so we went to check it out.
|The camp has a variety of accommodations including chalets and tents. These tents are raised on wooden platforms with a full bathroom. Price is about $80 per person a night with dinner and full breakfast.|
|We followed the rules|
|Having another "pinch myself" day realizing I'm living in Zambia!|
|The game camp also raises cattle, fish, chickens, etc for the restaurant and a shop on the property. Next time we'll bring a cooler with us and stock up on meat as it was absolutely delicious|
|Huge termite mound|
|The butt ends of zebras|
|We saw 5 giraffes - one of my favorite African animals, but this was the only one that was easily seen.|
|Not sure what kind of tree this was, but the roots climbed the outside of the trunk|
|Fish farming is done here as well|
