Friday’s Fabulous Photos: Chobe, Botswana

I have extraordinary memories of our time in Chobe, Botswana.  Chobe National Park is the most diverse park in Botswana, and is bordered by the Chobe River (water = crocs and hippos!).  On the far shore is Namibia.  We saw so many different kinds of animals, but everyone goes to Chobe for the Elephants. There are around 70,000 of them!  On a continent where they are so ruthlessly hunted, Chobe has been a haven for them.

      Thank you for the compliment! Randy and Ally are the photographers here…they usually do the land animals! I’m so excited to see these animals I couldn’t even find a camera if I had one around my neck.

  2. Wonderful photos! I love them all, but the giraffe with the bird was precious. Wonderful job!
