The guides packed the coffee and refreshments and we went on 3 hour walk over the impressive islands in the middle of the Limpopo River. A stunning walk through ancient Riverine Forrests with trees as old as 800 years and where you can still find Wild Orchids nestled in their canopy. Whilst making our way we where welcomed by a cacophony of noise made by various birds such as Meyers Parrots, Grey Loeries and the call of the African Fish Eagle. In the distance we were being observed by a Tower of Giraffes, curiously following our movements over the Islands. Big herds of Impalas and groups of Kudus and Waterbuck were grazing in the distance and a large crocodile kept close track of us when we were sipping our coffee on the banks of the Limpopo River. A perfect start of a perfect day…
