Kasane, Botswana: After crossing the border from Namibia, we set up camp in Kasane on the edge of Chobe National Park. We drove through the park two days and took a boat tour another, which was the perfect combination of ways to see the most wildlife in this spectacular park.
What makes Chobe stunning is its water, rich riverbanks and marshes. There was no shortage of elephants, giraffe, hippos, warthogs, crocodiles, buffalo, lizards and monkeys to see.
A few of our favorite moments…
Giraffes ‘tenting’ their legs since they are too tall to reach the grass standing
Warthogs kneeling down to eat
Hippos popping up and down with their big eyeballs to see what we were all about, and then yawning with disinterest when they realized we were just humans
Teenage elephants playing, splashing and spraying each other in the river
