We continue with the stories of trip to Botswana with the intense day we live in Victoria Falls in Zambia. After bathe in the Devil's Pool, we went back to him Tongabezi Lodge To continue enjoying the Zambeze River and a romantic evening.

After eating on Livingstone Island, we return to the hotel. In the afternoon we had booked a couple more activities, this time focused on knowing more about the Zambeze River. About six in the afternoon we went to the hotel jetty and there, along with other hotel guests, we made a river cruise.

The guide was a knowledgeable expert of the river and was explaining curiosities of the fauna and flora of the place. We were surprised to discover that he had been working overtime in the area as a "crocodile" picker. And it is that this man was responsible for going to the villages on the banks of the river when they had problems with these predators and then he and his team were responsible for capturing the crocodile and relocating it to another point where it could not harm. We were speechless when he explained the process to get a crocodile out of the water, immobilize it and put it in the boat. Crocodile Dundee would be an apprentice next to this man.

Sailing with the boat on the river, it seemed that time stopped and we could hear the sound of birds in the trees. The larger animals had hidden quite a bit and we only saw some hippos in the distance, but the calm of the afternoon and the landscape made us feel fortunate to be there. When we had been there for an hour, we stopped the boat in the middle of the river, the guide opened the portable fridge he was carrying and started to prepare a snack with peanuts and popcorn to snack, and wine, gin-tonics And soda. It was a total luxury to watch the sunset on the river with a glass of white wine in hand.
