Into the Wild



The four of us are off to Botswana now to spend the last few days on safari. We cross the border once again, this time into Botswana. All along the way I have been noticing small changes in landscape and again, here in Botswana it is more evident. The kalahari sands...red, the acacia trees...flat, the wildlife...more abundant.

Our lodge and grounds situated along the Chobe River are absolutely lovely. Here we have a beautifully decorated suite with a balcony overlooking the river. The common areas of the lodge are huge...plenty of space to find a quiet spot to relax.


The safari experience here is wonderfully different than Kruger and anywhere else we've been. Three game drives and a boat cruise provides us with the opportunity to spot so much wildlife. We see large groups of elephants drinking and playing by the river, buffalo, hippo, lions, jackels, giraffes...the list goes on. The bird life and flora...also just amazing.


We stop mid-day for a snack at a rest spot and then continue on......


I cannot even post all of the unbelievable photos...too numerous, but you get the idea, I'm sure. We return to the lodge for a dip in the pool and a little relaxation then head out for our sundowner cruise on the Chobe River....


Did I mention those African sunsets? Wow!
