Early start as we were going on a game drive into the CHOBE NATIONAL PARK. It was so cold…and no one warned us to take a blanket or something warmer than just a jumper..so we all sat very close to each other hoping to get warmer this way. As soon as we reached the park we saw a bull elephant and then we followed lion tracks and saw a pride with 4 very tiny cubs…it was amazing but too many cars that wouldn't move so we only got a glimpse of them.We saw many animals and birds including kudus, Malibu stokes, fish eagles, more lions, impalas, vultures.
We got back to the camp still shivering where brunch was ready for us at 10am…wasn't really brunch…just beans and mushrooms on toast.We moved our tents to a proper camping area and then went into town for some retail therapy.The town was soo tiny, only a street long. Bought a few snacks and waited for Shashe to pick us up.When we got back to the campsite, decided to use our last few pula so had some chips at the bar…felt good.At 3pm we went on the fish eagle sunset cruise which was a safari on the Choebe River.Apparently Choebe River is where the borders of Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe meet.It was a new experience and one we will never forget.Saw many elephants, hippos, buffaloes, baboons, kingfishers, fish eagles, monitor lizards and crocodiles.We enjoyed the sunset while sipping on Chenin Blanc.
It was our last camping dinner with everyone before some left us in Livingstone so we all sat around a fire and ate feta salad, potato salad, cauliflower & broccoli in cheese sauce.We were surprised with a ginger & apple crumble for dessert.For once we all got enough food and didn't have to worry if the last person was going to get enough to eat or not.Yet again, we got the good and bad news from Mark which included our early start of 5am by the next day!!!!
