Mozambique & Zambia

I caught a HUGE Tiger Fish!! : - )

sunny 33 °C

I went to Cohara Bassa in Mozambique to go Tiger fishing. The water is part of the great Zambezi and was full of fish, fish eagles, hippos and crocodiles! Our boat got really close to the hippos and crocs!! We could even see lots of baboons on the riverbank. In order to catch a tiger fish, you have to use a chunk from another tiger fish as bait. They have a mouthful of GIANT teeth, (I kept a tooth from each fish that I caught).

So far in Zambia I have been to the Victoria Falls and a Zoological Park. The water at the top of the falls was a bit low. I climbed through the water and jumped up on a large rock meters from the drop! Exciting! There were also many baboons around. I saw a couple of them mate. They put on a display about 5 feet away from me!

While on a drive through Mosi-O-Tunya Zoological Game Park I saw my first RHINO since being here in Africa. We were able to get out of the 4X4 and walk within meters of him. He was very sad because his wife was slaughtered about 3 weeks ago by poachers. I think he is the only Rhino left in the park. There were many armed guards following his every move.
