Forget "the cow jumped over the moon"...
On my game drive from the Ichobezi Safari Boat,
it was Impala doing the leaps...
The banks of the Chobe are almost littered with Hippo.
The guides have to keep a wary eye out for these creatures as we cruised the waterways.
We saw this pod of Hippo almost every day of the four days
that we were on the Ichobezi Safari Boat...
Their movements seemed to be confined to getting up,
and then lying back down in a slightly different position.
The largest Nile Crocodile I have EVER seen.
According to my guide, David, it was at least 5m long...
The Yellow-billed Stork does not seem to concerned
about being so close to a handbag with teeth!
All the images in this posting were taken during game"drives"
from this houseboat.
A big "THANK YOU" to all the staff...
Especially my guide, David.
This holiday venue is highly recommended!
