      Pünktlich um 11.15 werden wir im Hotel abgeholt und in den Chobe Nationalpark gefahren. Dort steigen wir in der Chobe Elephant Lodge ab. Die Reise führt über verwirrende Grenzübergänge und die Zahl der anwesenden Zöllner wird nur durch die Anzahl an verteilten Stempeln übertroffen. Zwei trottlige Italiener üben im Selbstversuch, eine Reise durch …

      ... mud hole, a few trumpeted at us we went past and others completely ignored us and carried on grazing. They are the most amazing animals and I never get tired of watching them. When we got back from the drive we sat around the camp fire for a bit. We walked down to near the channel to watch the hippos at sunset. One submerged and then all of a sudden surfaced about 3 metres from the shore and snorted. Well that was me and Frances out of there. Perhaps I ...

      Up before dawn to be first in line into Chobe National Park. I actually wanted to get up early! We took a back route looking for lions. We did find an impala up a tree. It was probably taken up by a leopard. The impala are too quick for lions. Before this trip, I was pretty unimpressed with birds. However, now, I have a new appreciation. We had a break for coffee and tea given to us in tin cups on a table with a tablecloth....... So civilized. We were told ...

Two young men could not find two calves, so they began searching the fields...... while smoking. The fields caught fire. They burned the village, killing cows, goats, and burning all belongings. The villagers believe the two young men ran away to Botswana. A villager telling this story was very agitated. The Africans do not believe in banks. They put all their ...
