Today we went on our first safari to Chobe. It was a rough drive on the Gulu road, but the trip was eventful and fun. Here is our collection of wildlife typical of the day, along with a few others you might enjoy. Northern Uganda is a remarkably beautiful place, and it was fun to get out with the young missionaries for a preparation day of fun.
