Photos from recent trip - trip report still in progress

Jump to last reply

This is from a recent trip to Cape Town, Selinda, Chitabe, Xigera, Mombo, Vic Falls, and Rwanda. Highlights include:

1) Being assaulted by a mountain gorilla (I apparently was in his way and he moved me out of his way)
2) Being charged by a hippo while in a boat (fortunately a power boat) between Xigera and Mombo
3) The entire morning excursion from Xigera heading through the delta and to the west edge of Chief's Island (one of the top things I've ever done, period)
4) Having an elephant come to within about 5 feet of our truck in Chitabe (Newman wasn't particularly concerned, so we weren't either)
5) Everything else

Let me know if you have any questions about where any of these were taken or what the circumstances were.
