Having never heard of the word ‘riparian

on any previous occasion…

I discovered that it simply refers to

being ‘situated or dwelling on the bank of a river,

or other body of water.’


I think our accommodation at Maun, Botswana,

fits that description aptly…

as both our accommodation and the resort

were less than a stone’s throw from…

one of the Okavango Delta’s many water ways.


And I never did ask if this was a flooded fence,

or a fence in water to keep some of the

water-loving creatures away from

the tourists front door.
