Look at this!
I, Zeb the Duck, am in Africa with 6 human women. We are in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi in southern Africa. Where, you may ask, is Malawi? Many humans ask, so here is a map of Africa showing Malawi in southern Africa.
Three humans and I take this taxi.
We arrive at Lilongwe Nature Sanctuary.
This is a beautiful, peaceful place in Lilongwe between Old Town and Capital City. These sofas look inviting, but they are made of cement.
Heading down a trail, I, Zeb the Duck, am fascinated with the twisted trunk on this tree.
What are these hanging from a tree, over the river?
The humans say they are nests of the Weaver Birds. The male Weaver bird builds the nest, and if the female does not like it, she will knock it down. Then the male has to build a new and better nest for her. I love this river.
It was so pretty and rivers always sound soothing. We wander around the Lilongwe Nature Sanctuary for awhile, enjoying every moment. We decide to walk to the adjoining Lilongwe Wildlife Center. Crossing the river on the road, these monkeys entertained us.
Here at the Lilongwe Wildlife Center, injured, abused and orphaned animals are cared for.
Some may later be released into the wild, and some will remain at the wildlife center for the remainder of their lives. Let’s follow this bridge, with our guide, and explore.
The diuker resembles the deer we see in Colorado.
This orange baboon could be my new friend.
Here is a big crocodile.
And it is no surprise that it is an African crocodile. This is Africa, of course. This was a great first day in Lilongwe, Malawi. But there is much more to show you, so check back here soon.
