A welcoming committee was awaiting

our arrival at our next

Okavango Delta campsite.

It was only after we were out of the vehicle

that these Yellow-Billed Hornbills

donned their vehicle inspector’s caps.

The boss had a really good look around.

He even spotted my camera bag

on his way through.

Inspection completed, they quietly left…

…but not before checking out

the good looker in the mirror.

WeeklyPrompts-PC-Ruffin’-It

Our 2014 Botswana Safari was the last time

we came near to ruffin it.   

We soon discovered that connecting to the internet

in the Kalahari Desert and Okavango Delta

was not going to happen.

 

Instead we once again discovered the joys

of sitting and eating around a campfire,

sleeping in tents, without any connection

to family and friends via social media networking.

However, even on our rough trip

our guide acted as cook.

We all commented on how nice it was

to spend 7 nights around a campfire.

Upon arriving at Chobe we once again

were able to access the outside world

via our social media connections.

Conversation died a quick death as

all eyes were fixated on our devices.

So much for ruffin’ it  🙂

Oh!

We ain’t got a barrel of money…

 

…maybe we’re ragged and funny…

…but we’ll travel the road…

 

…sharin’ our load, side by side.
