Five years ago we were readying ourselves
for our trip to Botswana.
To help with our budgeting
we agreed to ‘rustic’ accommodation.
Little did we know that our first night would
be spent in a hut which had a 12 inch gap
between the roof and walls.
The following night, while walls and roof met,
however the triangle above the front and back walls
was only filled in with chicken wire.
Our comfort, again was controlled by
chilly winds blowing in, through, or out. 😊
Warm and comfortable.
Upon reaching Chobe Resort…

cast long shadows.
Possibly the first time I photographed a shadow.
Sadly the tree is no longer.

Most of us agreed that this was what
we thought of when talking of
Still in the north-eastern area
of the Kalahari, on our way
to Maun, Botswana.
The Great Outdoors theme reminded me of…
Makgadikgadi Salt Pans which form part of the
North Eastern Kalahari Desert in Botswana.
Driving into the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans on Sua Pan
we camped the night at Lekhubu Island
and watched a beautiful sunset
and sunrise the next morning.
The next day we seemed to drive for hours
with only the occasional village to pass by and
a few more Acacia trees to form
the only shelter and shade along the way..
We really felt alone on the planet.
I distinctly remember saying that I
had a shot of where it was..
after taking this photo.
What’s not there is…
this Kalahari Scrub Robin
at Lekhubu Island in Botswana.
Note the dirt/sand kicked up as it accelerates away.
