It turns out more than a few PCVs planned to go to Waza National Park for a safari.Since there were a total of fifteen of us, it ended up costing each person less than 10.000CFA ($20US) for the whole trip!
Alim (+237 99 71 73 40) picked us up from our front door step as we hired a car from Maroua to Waza. I shared shotgun seat with Jasmine Junk and Jenny Wang while the rest of the car blasted 80s music from an IPOD.It was good times as when we got closer to the park, monkeys darted right in front of us.
It was a hot day (I’m estimated 95+ degree Farenheit), but well worth it as we saw giraffes, vultures, warthogs (Puumba!), ostriches, antelope, and deer.First safari in Africa: check!
