Chobe NP is a spectacular park around the Chobe and Zambezi rivers.. the locals extremely friendly (as usual).
This little guy gave us a delicious bream straight from the Zambezi.
The bird and animal life was astounding
Giant King Fisher
all sorts of other birds enjoying sunset after a day's fishing!
a few giraffes
and tonnes of elephants
We nipped across the river to a little island called Pole Pole in Namibia. The sum total of the amenities were a toilet and a bar. Total inhabitants were 5 people including us and were were privileged to be the first people this year to camp on the island.. partly because it was about 4ft under water a few months ago and partly because it isn't a campsite!

Watching the locals Fish
The following day was to be our day of 4 countries.
We started the day in Namibia on Pole Pole.
Returned to Botswana
Put a foot into Zimbabwe.. and then discovered that it was 55US$ each for the visa.
So we returned to Botswana
However we didn't miss the opportunity to make a few dollars before heading to a Backpackers in Livingstone.
No elephants on this road but we did spot a couple of Giraffes peering at us through the bush!
And tomorrow we are off to the falls..
