My Chobe adventure.


The Chobe River is full of Nile Crocodiles.
This is the biggest croc I have ever seen in the wild!
I am certain that Impala form part of their diet.

Laundry day on the river banks

An African Openbill coming in to land…

My first foray into fishing…
A 4kg catfish of my first cast…and then NOTHING!
