After a quick ride from Livingston, Zambia into Botswana many riders took in the opportunity to enjoy a safari cruise down the Chobe River. An afternoon in the hot Botswana heart took its toll on the riders and many took the first part of the river cruise as an opportunity to nap. (ahem Sunil and Paddy) Once the animals arrived everyone was wide awake! After cruising past a GIANT lizard and crocodile we were lucky to spot a lion chasing down an impala, all from the safe confines of our river boat. As we cruised along we were treated to many families of hippos soaking up the late afternoon sun, elephants getting their drinks of water before nightfall and crocodiles waiting for the cover of darkness. Sadly for this giraffe lover it would be days in Botswana before I spotted my first giraffe. The cruise brought us back to camp just after enjoying a spectacular sunset on the Chobe River. Fortunately for us interim Chef Allison had held dinner for us. (a rider favourite spaghetti bolognaise!) Everyone tucked into their tents with visions of lions and elephants in their dreams
