Mvuu

We haven't been away for a while, just the six of us, and so we decided we would take a couple days to enjoy Liwonde National Park. Mvuu is the camp we stayed at and we had a GREAT time together admiring the awesomeness of God's creation.

I have seen many fish eagles, but I've never witnessed one grabbing lunch. It was amazing to watch him swoop down and catch a fish.

Mvuu means hippo. We saw so many of them. They can run very fast.

We saw many crocs too. Allison's favourite animal is the cock-a-dial.

Look how close these four precious kiddos got to be near elephants.
Sweetest Allison!

Kids in a dug out trunk which fisherman use as canoes.

This is the chalet we stayed in, right on the Shire River. At night the wild animals roam right outside your tent. There are no fences like at the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
