What Foreigners Do in Africa

Coming to Africa to look at flora and fauna is a must do for any tourist on the continent.  Botswana has accomodated this need by setting up reserves, parks, and protected areas within a stones throw of anywhere a tourist might go.

So on the second weekend I was here that is exactly what we did.  Barb, a Rotarian with the Gaborone Club and Rafa’s sponsor, took us to the Mokolodi nature reserve to do a rhino tracking.  We did track the rhino and I learned a great deal about how to tell how old rhino feces is, how fresh urine is, and what kind of marks their feet make in sand.  I also learned that the difference between Black and White Rhino’s has nothing to do with their color, but the shape of their mouth

Probably on of the better pictures I have ever taken.  It is better than seeing them in a zoo because they run, forage and do all those things they cannot do in an enclosure
