Scenic Sunday - Okavango Delta



Another last minute rush post job just in time for Scenic Sunday (hopefully)!

One of the most serene places i've been too is the Okavango Delta. So beautiful, so quiet - very reflective (after you get over initial fear of being chomped on by hippos and crocs!)

A definite highlight from my Africa trip - i'm glad we added it on to our trip plans last minute - well worth it! I just wish I had extra long arms so we could have taken better pictures of ourselves in our mokoros. Instead I have zillions of photos of lots of other people who I don't really know - oh well!

Wow Jen,
I would love to get to see this in real life. These shots are wonderful and the place is exactly as you described it.

I think It would take me a little time to get adjusted to Hippos and crocs too...but, my the trip down this river looks well worth it.

I hope you have a great week,
Jackie:-)

I especially like the vivid colors in your photos - everything looks better when viewed this way!

I would be scared to death to get into those boats & ride in that water w/ hippos & crocs!!! I don't think I could do it.

I recently saw a film on the Okavango Delta-- seems like one of the most dynamic places on earth! Must have been amazing to experience. :) Thank you for sharing.

Gorgeous photos! That delta looks like it is teeming with life. Did you see any hippos or crocs?

lucky (unlucky?) for us we didn't see any crocs or hippos while in the mokoro but we saw plenty while on safari! We did come to a low level water area which was filled with fish jumping all over the place - lucky none jumped into our mokoro!
