Lekhubu Island in Botswana…
heading north-ish along these super highways
of the Kalahari…
Every now and again we would stop for a break
to stretch our legs and marvel
at a landscape so different to ours.
This was Africa…
as depicted in many photos and movies…
and we loved it
past small villages until we reached
a main road (bitumen/black top)
leading to Maun.
all you need do is find that shallow part of the river…
and you can walk from Botswana to Namibia
to complete your journey.
It can become a bit of a hazard…
if your legs are short.
of two river crossing we sighted…
while in Botswana.
It was interesting to watch the leader…
change course in mid stream and I can only assume
it/they were following the shallowest path.
was watching the older elephants…
take care of the very little in the family…
ensuring they also had a safe crossing.
My contribution for this week’s challenge…
in Botswana’s Okavango Delta region.
The above shots are contiguous shots.
Even after jumping 25 shots he is only looking.
It’s breakfast time.
The photos are not as crisp as I would have liked.
This part of the reason.
First shot straight out of the camera.
Makgadikgadi Salt Pans,
ancient baobab trees.
for our sunset…
between the largest that…
Botswana could provide.
