Simba to Queen Elizabeth Park

We had our final dinner at Simba together and of course our high and low for the day.  What a great way to capture the day and also learn about each other.  We were off at the usual time to head to Mweya Lodge for one night.  Internet has been a challenge but in the whole scheme of things a good lesson in patience.

The first stop in the morning is at the Equator sign to take photos.

As we drove to the official gates of Queen Elizabeth Park, there was a chance we would see some animals.  Well we were not disappointed – elephants.  I was also able to catch a shot of a baby elephant, a little hazy on this hot day but cute none the less.

Up close & personal

We settled in and after lunch we had a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel.  This is the channel that connects Lake George and Lake Edward. Lake George is totally within Uganda and Lake Edward is 80% in the Congo and 20% in Uganda. 

Here's looking at you

Heading out for night fishing

We watched a lion and a buffalo have a stand off.  The lion would sit down and buffalo would move forward.  The lion would stand up and move on a bit, sit down.  They would just look at each other for a while.  This continued until finally the lion just moved on.  The guide said they were both old and neither wanted to fight!  Dark photos ---sorry.

Trying to co-exist
I am out of here.
