Muchenje Lodge, Chobe National Park, Botswana

The first three days we spend in Africa won't be in Zambia at all.  Pete is meeting our plane in Lusaka, Zambia, and then we are flying to Chobe National Park in Botswana for a three-day wildlife safari.  We'll be doing the 'Rich American Tourist' thing - even though we're not rich and no doubt everyone will know it in no time!

We'll be staying at the Muchenje Safari Lodge, a luxurious cluster of private cabanas overlooking the massive Chobe River.  All of the photos in this post were taken by guests of the lodge, or by the lodge management.  Isn't is glorious?

There is even a swimming pool overlooking the Chobe River!  I don't know how much use we'll get out of it, since May is the beginning of the colder, winter months south of the equator.  But although the temperatures may drop into the 30-40 degree range at night, the days are still very warm.  Plus it looks like a prime birding spot to me!

All the cabins look to be exquisitely decorated, and all are connected by wooden walkways.  I like that idea.  It would seem to make it less likely you'll step on snakes, scorpions, or spiders by accident.  

All of these wildlife photos were taken by people staying at Muchenje Safari Lodge.  We are going to be there shortly after the rainy season, so we won't see the throngs of animals that congregate at the Chobe riverbank during the dry season.  But I have no doubt we'll see plenty!

 I can almost guarantee that we'll see elephants.  Who doesn't love elephants?

I can almost guarantee we'll see crocodiles, too.  Hopefully not quite as close up as this person saw this crocodile.  In any case, I'll have a full report with original pictures to show you when we return.  Imagine it, though . . . Botswana!
