First game "drive" on the Chobe River


The beginning of our Chobe adventure...
Some of the river "traffic"

The vessels come in a variety of shapes and sizes! 

The bird life is spectacular

Our first "wild life sighting"...

The churning waters in front of the lodge...

We spent our first night at Ichingo River Lodge...
More images to follow soon.

We set of on our first "game drive"...
Or should that be "game cruise"...

Cormorants drying their plumage in the hot afternoon sun

A Grey Heron looks on as we pass

How the Yellow-billed Storks balance is beyond me

A White-chested Cormorant keeps an eye out for predators

Like this Nile Crocodile lurking under the tree...
just waiting for a tasty morsel to drop out of the sky.

My wife, Carolyn, hanging onto her hat as we zip down the Chobe

A European Swallow poses for my camera

Plenty of Elephant on day one!

An African Jacana wades amongst the herd.

The African version of "Three weddings and a funeral"...
"Three hippo and a croc"!

This young Baboon was about a week old.

A Cape Buffalo after a wallow...

Our first sunset on the Chobe River...
Good night.
