When we got to the park we set up our tents and then went on a late afternoon boat ride on the Chobe River.

Hippos are the most dangerous of all the African wildlife, killing more people a year than any other animal as they are very territorial. For that reason we were freaked out when we heard one behind our tent shortly after 1 am that evening. Dave lay awake the rest of the night listening to them make their grunting noises.
