A day on the delta

Up at dawn

As the sun rises

A short trip in a mokoro

Past the hippos

On our walk we saw...

...up close

then at lunch an elephant decided to visit across the river

Phillip was teaching how to "drive" a mokoro


Then in the evening we went on a sunset cruise

The journey to the Okavango Delta

Headed out in a new truck



After traveling through the bush and over rocky roads we passed a village


The mokoros (boats) and the Polers were waiting to take us further into the Delta
The polers worked hard
We relaxed
Our first glimpse of elephants.





Our camp spot for two nights

Our camp

The late afternoon walk ...we saw giraffe



 
And they saw us!
