    Tonight, I Have Laughed in Capital Letters

    ... br> wildlife that Africa has to offer. We passed through the park’s gates and 3
    hours driving to our camp site, which was located slap bang in the middle of
    the park. We saw giraffes, ostriches, elephants, wildebeest, all sorts of game
    (e.g. springboks, oryxs, zebras and kudus), termite hills as tall as trees, but
    there were no lions to be seen. That evening we had a quick swim in the camp’s
    pool, had some amazing kudu steaks and then headed to ...

    ... all sites on top of each other with little shade or privacy and ablutions had to be reached by car. Now we all know how impulsive COPK can be but I have never seen my husband make up his mind so quickly, without a second thought he did a U turn and headed straight out the gate and changed course on the GPS. In agreement again, the cancerians headed to 3rd Bridge in Moremi and AGAIN our itinerary was out of date. Just ...

    ... are completely vulnerable. The tall golden grasses are shoulder height so I was thankful to get out of there without seeing a camouflaged lion. For those who say that between me and Dave, I'd be the one who wouldn't try anything, well it's me who doesn't miss the opportunity to try everything. Even a branch pulled off a tree and used as a tooth brush!After a quick pack down of the tent we took the 1.5 hour trip back to civilisation on the mokoros. We can clear a ...

    Where A River Vanishes In The Kalahari

    ... br> As the water flows through these myriad waterways, much of it, almost 95%, either evaporates or gets swallowed by the Kalahari sands. Only 2 to 3 percent of the water reaches the delta’s southern fringes. Being located in an extremely arid desert region, it attracts great concentrations of animals and birds, making it a complex (and unique) ecosystem as well as Botswana's premier tourist attraction.

    But the size and scope of the ...
