Another Full Day at Chobe Park, Botswana - 27 Nov. 2018



Just shy of 1300 photos today. Yesterday’s post had 57 photos by my count. We really never know what we will see when we head out in the morning.

I know Linda took this photo of the floor of our tent for reason. I don’t have a clue what it was, but if I didn’t post it I just might get in trouble. Cautious Bob.

Heading out for the day. Elephant camp is close enough to civilization that we have electric power 24 hours and really good internet.

A small sectio9n of the trucks waiting for the ferry across the river. They can wait up to two weeks to cross. A bridge is being built, but things move very slowly in more than just a few ways in Africa.

And so the sun sets on our last day to be in the bush. Tomorrow we are flying to Cape Town and the start of the post trip. We never imagined the bush would be as totally awesome as it was. There will definitely be a return trip to other places in Africa in our future.
