Chobe National Park

August 13, 2009

Upon arriving in Kasane, Botswana I arranged for accommodations at the lovely Chobe Marina Lodge.  http://www.chobemarinalodge.com/gallery/photos/ as well as a river boat safari cruise on the grand Chobe River through Chobe National Park.  http://www.chobe-national-park.com/

Here are a few pictures… more can be found on my facebook page!

Gaborone to Kasane, Botswana

Besides the incredibly insane potholes that filled the road like landmines from Nata to Kasane,  the drive up through Botswana,  from Gaborone to Kasane,  was pretty uneventful.  Having to drive real slow to weave the potholes gave use an excellent opportunity to capitalize on wildlife sightings.
