  1. One night in Botswana after dinner we brought some dessert back to our tent. We did not eat all of it, left it on a low table and started to get ready for bed. I looked over and a small mouse was nibbling away. I flushed the rest of it down the toilet. Do not know where the mouse went but it must have shared the tent with us.
  2. @janzin.....and you decided not to go canoeing?!!
  3. @janzin...depending on where you are staying in the lower Zambezi when we were at Chiawa, our canoe trip was in a channel. When we ran into hippos, the guides just had us go over to the side and wait to see where the hippos would go. Sometimes we stayed on the side a good while but eventually when it came up it, we would find out where it was going. Then we proceeded. It gives great viewing of birds. My husband was in one canoe with a guide and I was in another. The funny thing is before we started my guide asked me if I could swim! It is a good experience....hope I am helping!
  4. @Geoff....SLNP delivers once again. Thanks for a great trip report with fabulous photos!!
  5. Wonderful!
  6. @Kitsafari....finally I have read and viewed the entire trip report. A most compatible group, a discovery of a place that most of have not been, and what a wonderful report you have given. Love the White Pelicans. Now must get out Jonathan Living Seagull and a couple of poetry books! Thanks for the inspiration.
  7. welcome back! and it is wonderful that you living your dream.
  8. Scotland is a beautiful country. We had a couple of stops there a few years ago. Mull and a trip to Iona. It is charming, even without any bird sightings. Thanks!
  9. have the SASOL eBirds of Southern Africa app on my IPad. It is not cheap, but it works for me and is better than packing a book.
  10. great news! It was just announced that the laptop ban is no longer in place for Emirates and Turkish airlines.
  11. yes...but nothing like some of these stories. On our first trip (SLNP) we had so many mock charges that it was not until a year later that I told my husband that I was afraid of elephants. No longer afraid. Not too thrilled with hippos when canoeing.
  12. One time I moved with my camera too quickly, and a lion really snapped to attention. Our guide told us not to move and I thought that I was going slowly...but. You will have a guide won't you?
