Beware of the Elephants
Botswana is a country filled with diamonds and wildlife. I did not find diamonds, but I was in constant contact with the ubiquitous wildlife that roam the big bush and marsh areas of this country. One particular stretch, aptly named elephant highway, meant close encounters with the humongous mammals. I have been learning that these big animals are not so accustomed to bicycles, and sometimes I am mistaken as a threat. This resulted in once being chased by an elephant, an experience that really makes your heart race. Camping in the bush means looking for lions tracks before setting up tent, and listening to growls and snorts all around me through the night. After a visit to Chobe National Park and the big Victoria Falls, I look forward to seeing what more this beautiful continent has in store.
