When we got to the water's edge, the friendly security guard asked us if we'd like to see a large heard of zebra, gazelle, wildebeest, and waterbuck. We of course said yes, and he led us on a fabulous walking safari. This was a first for all of us! Instead of driving in vehicles to see the wildlife, we got to walk and be right there with them (since they're not dangerous animals.) It was amazing and such a great experience for many of our teammates who had never seen those animals in the wild before.
Lunch was a delicious buffet that we ate outside on the beautiful lawn. We all ate so much we had to take an hour "rest" before our next adventure.
After lunch and a nice swim, we took a lovely boatride on the lake and saw lots of hippos and different types of birds.
The highlight of the boat ride for me was when we found a cove in the lake where a bunch of fish eagles lived up in the trees. Our boat driver brought along some fresh fish and after whistling really loudly, he threw the fish into the water near our boat. From 200 meters away, the eagle flew right towards us and snatched up the fish in the nearby water. It was amazing! It all happened so fast and I was so entralled, I didn't get on camera!
