Chobe River

Yesterday after a somewhat recuperative day after the wild concert the night before that never happened, we hired a guide and boat for a 3 hour private late afternoon Chobe River cruise. There were a lot of other boats large and small on the river but having a small boat to ourselves allowed us to get up close and personal with the many birds and animals inhabiting the shoreline. We did get up close and personal and for the first time in Africa saw many crocodiles along the banks and our first out of water hippos. This area is also a birders delight. The banks of the Chobe separate the countries of Botswana and Namibia and a few kilometres away turns into the Zambezi which separates Zimbabwe, Namibia, Zambia and Angola.
