We took off this morning for the Shenkele Game Reserve, which is home to the last 700 Swayne’s Hartebeests in the world. As we drove along the crowded highway in our caravan, we passed cart after cart carrying large loads, including huge yellow plastic jugs of water, hay, and people. The drive took seemingly forever due to the many delays caused by donkey carts, sheep and cattle.
The road to the Preserve was sandy dirt. Children waved to us as we passed by their thatched houses and their herds. Dust hurled up to block our sight.
