Waiting for the Boat
by Mike Loomis
March 25, 2003
We had planned to head to Nki National Park today, but the boat that was to take us to Libongo to pick up our vehicle was involved in a tri-national (Cameroon, Central African Republic, and Republic of Congo) anti-poaching patrol, and therefore cannot pick us up until tomorrow morning. We spent the day relaxing, doing laundry, and swimming in the river. Jason repaired the oxygen regulator, so we will be able to use oxygen with the next elephant, as we normally do. We leave tomorrow at 10:00 am and will spend the night in Mambele enroute to Nki.
