Today has been a fantastic , but more about that in another post! First, here are some photos of some of the local wildlife which I promised I would send for my children to see. The deer frequent the hotel in the morning when the breakfast buffet is laid out. The staff throw them bits of bread, and they came looking to see if we would too! Who could resist…

The spider was at the church we visited for our Sunday service in Makomba. It was perched on the corner of the front door and was about the size of a hand.

We have also seen ‘Angel birds’ which are white Ibis (small heron type birds) and Minister birds – crows with white collars, like dog collars! There are also small eagles and vultures which enjoy the hot air currents.
