The Chobe River is a special place for nature photographers and nature lovers. One side of the river is Botswana, the other side, Namibia. Beautiful birds are nesting along the both shorelines.
And the nest robbers go after the eggs.
The Southern Red Bishop searches the reeds for building materials.
He builds several nests for his home show and invites the female for a look.
Elephants love the water, where they drink, eat, cool off and play.
And sometimes their life ends in the river. Dozens of Nile Crocodiles feasted on this elephant for a day – and then for some reason, moved it about a half mile upstream during the night, and then cleaned up what remained.
And of course, the mighty Fish Eagle. Sometimes the call is the first sound of the morning.
Along the riverside, lions like to roam in and out of the trees, along the sandbars…
The river is loaded with hippos. Lots of action!
