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.

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 🙂
That looks great!
Thanks! It was fun!
with your posts its automatic for me before I even see the picture, I like it already, and when I love it… well I comment, ergo, this post is awesome 🙂
Thanks for the kind comment!
Niiiiiiiiice… i can hear the paddles splashing the water. 🙂
You have had so many interesting experiences! I am glad you share them with us.
I’ve been lucky and I love to share my experiences. Thank you for following along on my adventures 🙂
That would have been a lot of fun… as long as there are no hippos near by.
Or crocodiles. I don’t know which one scares me more.
Quite an adventure.
I will always remember it.
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
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.
Incredible. I love this shot. What an amazing spot for a break 🙂
Ah that lovely afternoon/evening light in Africa! I’ll be in Botswana in late May but won’t see Makhagikhagi. Thanks for this!
Have fun and I’m so jealous! It is a wonderful country.
Thanks! I’ll probably post a few photos on my Facebook page if I have a chance. I’ll be visiting my favorite elephants while there!
Great photo! They look at ease in the boat, but I would be nervous about crocodiles.
Oh I was…it is odd since I enjoyed my trip so much, but there was always a little fear in the back of my mind.
Nice photo. Looks like the water is very peaceful here. 🙂
The canoe ride was quite peaceful…and all of us made it safe and sound.
Wow! I will have to pick your brains before I plan a trip to Africa!
Please…I love talking about it!
