Travel Photo of the Day (April 29)

When we visited the Makgadikgadi National Park, we had to leave one of the jeeps on the other side of the river and canoe over to where the guide had another jeep.  This photo was taken after the safari and our group took turns going back across the water to return to the camp for dinner.

  1. Looks like fun! In my mind I picture crocodiles in the river and on the banks. Did you see any?

      I didn’t see any during the actual canoe ride, but I saw some in the river earlier so I knew not to put my hands outside 🙂

  4. Anita S says:

    You have had so many interesting experiences! I am glad you share them with us.

  5. T.F.Walsh says:

    That would have been a lot of fun… as long as there are no hippos near by.

  6. Colline says:

    Quite an adventure.

  7. Jo Bryant says:

    they say you are in more danger with hippos don’t they…because they don’t seem dangerous…either way that canoe looks like the place to be

    • TBM says:

      The hippos were the most terrifying for me…they are so large and when you see them up close you see all of their battle scares. They are fierce creatures and I would be no match.

  8. Incredible. I love this shot. What an amazing spot for a break 🙂

  9. Ah that lovely afternoon/evening light in Africa! I’ll be in Botswana in late May but won’t see Makhagikhagi. Thanks for this!

  10. Fergiemoto says:

    Great photo! They look at ease in the boat, but I would be nervous about crocodiles.

  11. Myra GB says:

    Nice photo. Looks like the water is very peaceful here. 🙂

    Wow! I will have to pick your brains before I plan a trip to Africa!
