Tired of “ho hum” canned vacations? Want to do something very few people do? Want to find evidence that dinosaurs still live today? Want to do a “non-tourist” trip with guides who give a Biblical interpretation of God's creation. Then going on an Adventure Safarisvacation is just for you. We are doing research and investigation of sightings of a dinosaur like creature called Manipogo in Lake Manitoba, Manitoba, Canada. We will spend the week interviewing eye witnesses, visiting Manipogo sighting locations, visiting elders of the Native American tribes to record their stories of Manipogo.

Be the first in your neighborhood to spot Manipogo, a living marine dinosaur. We can't guarantee it, but it is fun to search and who knows, we may see him yet! Fishing and fossil hunting available, too. Motels, cabins, and campgrounds available in the area. The cost of this camp see below under Manipogo Camp.

Manipogo is a dinosaur era creature that has been spotted in Lake Manitoba, Canada. We go there looking for the creature and interviewing Native American peoples who have seen the animal. We believe it is a Plesiosaurus or Basilosaurus and eyewitnesses say it may be up to 30 feet long.

Summer 2000 Reports

[Reports by teams that did interviews of local folks and Native Americans (First Nation peoples) We plan to follow up on these leads next summer.]

Report to Mr. Russ Mc Glenn on interview with Abigail Moar at Band office on reservation at Crane River, Manitoba Canada conducted by Ron Green, Bill Olmsted and Luella Jensen and prepared by Ronald M. Green 9/18/00.

Her great grandfather saw the “dragon with a horse head.” He saw him at least 50 years ago. Crane River is 40 feet across, pretty deep in some spots. Is Crane River the same as “Lake Manitoba River” which runs through the town of Crane River?—Probably so. [Need to follow up on this location]

Abigail's mother in law was there and saw it half on the shore half in the water. I believe this was the same sighting as what her great grandfather had. A teacher was with her and saw it too and then fainted. said Luella: “You don't faint if you see a log” Abigail said the teacher said it had a horse's head. The teacher who saw it is named Genevieve. She was out of town the week we interviewed Abigail.

Abigail mentioned that nearby on Louis's Island there were caves there that had pictures (drawings) of three (?) men and a horse. It didn't seem to myself and Bill Olmsted that these were related to what we were looking for because there was no mention of it being serpent-like drawing, but of just a horse. Someone there at the office could guide us to that cave—but again that man was gone for the weekend. [This may be a drawing of the creature as many eyewitnesses say the head of the creature looks like a horse. We hope to send a team to explore this island next summer]

Other information:

In calling back to the Waterhen Inn, the lady who was the owner's wife told me that she knows of someone who saw something akin to the creature (or the same) we are looking for just three years ago. The person to contact about this is Mr. Camille Catcheway who lives at Water Hen First Nation on the Skownan Reservation. This sighting was on Water Hen Lake, 20 miles north of where we were staying.

Pictures of the Summer 2000 Search

1. Our stop at the boarder with campers.

2. Thuy, Kevin, Lisa.

3. Landing on an island to search for Manipogo nesting sites.

4. View of the whole team. Two families and 4 teens.

5. We had three boats for exploration.

6. Usually we could paddle into shore and not get our feet wet.

7. Lake Manitoba has hundreds of isolated islands and beaches where Manipogo might nest or hunt. Students looking for Manipogo on another island.

8. Camp would not be complete without craft activities. Students made models of Manipogo from clay or carved cow bones with an engraving tool.

9. Another exploration team returns to camp.

10. There was a nice camp area and most people used tents. Cabins were available, too.

11. During free time campers played table games.

13. Mrs. Green made a model of Manipogo from clay.
