Here's mine to get you going. I know there are a lot more impressive images than mine out there waiting to be uploaded...

Posted Image

A view to the Selati railway bridge into Skukuza. Parked up on the concrete bridge across the Sabie River. (The same time I saw two leopards on the far bank. What a great sighting that was for me...)

This is the first of my rivers.

This has become my favourite last stop on my Botswana safari each year. It is the now flowing Boteti River at Mena a

Kwena.


Posted Image


This is the landing stage in March 2009 when the floods were high at Nxamaseri. The Nxamaseri Channel flows into the

Okavango River. Nxamaseri Lodge is where I learnt to fish.

This is a sandbank on the mighty Okavango River where I took my late husband's ashes and cast them onto the river. It's

a place where african skimmers were nesting, and they flew overhead as I let John go.

Matt, 2 leopards, you were lucky.

Jan, some really nice river photos. How lovely that the skimmers gave an overhead guard of honour for your husband.

The second last image is excellent, you've managed the river, an elephant and a baobab so you could put the same image in three different threads!! :D

Bearing in mind there have been a lot of recent visits to Mana Pools, let's see some more African rivers...

You could extrapolate a picture of Murchison Falls (Victoria Nile) from my last TR......

I'll help Paolo out with a video of Murchison Falls. It's not very good but the sound and movement of the water help convey the power of the falls. We were told Idi Amin got rid of a few enemies by chucking them into the gorge.

From wikipedia: "At the top of Murchison Falls, the Nile forces its way through a gap in the rocks, only 7 metres (23 ft) wide, and tumbles 43 metres (141 ft), then flows westward into Lake Albert. The outlet of Lake Victoria sends around 300 cubic metres per second (11,000 ft³/s) of water over the falls, squeezed into a gorge less than ten metres (30 ft) wide."

@Kingfisher Safaris Martin, any chance of reposting your photos above?

 

In the meantime, here's one you'll recognise...

Now, who else has rivers to upload?
