From Botswana | Sunsets At Lion Park

I had zero intentions of posting anything during exam season but when you're out of procrastination activities, what can you do? I was scrolling through the camera roll on my phone and came across these pictures, taken on a very hot December afternoon at Lion Park Resort just outside of Gaborone, Botswana 

I remember being so reluctant to go. To be fair, I did want to get out of the house, as constantly sitting indoors whilst everyone went out was about to drive me insane. *sigh* The life of an introvert. I had made plans to go to my cousin's house for the day when I was told that I (apparently) agreed on going to Lion Park with my sister and a bunch of kids I didn't know. When do I ever agree to going out with strangers? *sigh* anyways.. 

The day wasn't too bad. I hadn't been to Lion Park in almost 5 years. I was greeted by the usual lively ambiance of the park during the festive season...a DJ blasting house music, kids splashing around in the pool, teens acting cool around the park and adults preparing lunch at the braai stands. I was quite restricted in my all-black outfit, but I did manage to go on a couple of rides. 

The highlight of the day, however, was when I escaped the crowds and hopped on the ferris wheel with Fanta Orange in one hand and my phone in the other. I wasn't expecting much, just peace and quiet, but I was surprised to see the beautiful sunset that was before me. The iPhone pictures really don't do it justice. Partly because I wasn't in my photographer mood haha. I could go on for days about sunsets in Botswana. Maybe that's because I feel homesick for an average of 5 hours per day, or because we get like 0.5 days of sun per year in England. Or maybe it's a combination of both. 
Here are a couple of pictures:

Lion Park wouldn't be my number one place to go during the December holiday because I think there are far better and calmer things to do in Gaborone, however, it's great for a family day out, as it's suited for all ages. 

If you ever do find yourself at Lion Park, make sure you hop on the ferris wheel to catch the sunset. 

Till Next Time 

Peace. Love.
