The Protea

We left the Havens and Namwianga Sunday afternoon after church and lunch and drove about two hours to Livingstone.  Right after we  checked into the Protea, Beckie and I drove "Khaki Jackie" a few miles down the road to confirm the safari and sunset cruise.  We saw giraffes, baboons, monkeys, and zebras in protected areas around luxury hotels and spas.  The rugged, dirt road leading to these resorts reminded  me of the roads back home in rural Woodruff County, but the destination was totally Out of Africa!  Most of the hotels here are gated and guarded by men who look like they are police. The lobbies are all open air --  no doors. The landscaping is beautiful with tropical plants and large fountains. The service is excellent and the staff seems to go out of their way to greet us. To those of us who have been in partial isolation for 5 weeks, this is luxury and we are getting used to it very quickly!
