Challenge 1 - Serious Relaxing? HA!

If you've watched the video in the previous post you'll know that upon arriving at Serra Cafeme all we had in mind was relaxation. However, that was not to be the case. No sooner had we checked in and unpacked were we whisked away on a Crocodile safari.

Crusing on the Kunene

Clement took us out on the boat and up and down the Kunene, in search of our 'prey'.

One thing that has to be said about Clement, he is the master of the understatement...
Some choice examples include:

"One rule: Stay away from the water. Aside from that, we'll have a lovely time!"

"Keep your limbs in the boat or you might lose one to a croc and that might be a bit awkward later on."

"Don't stand up while we're moving. If you fall in, a croc'll grab you and then you're in for an interesting time..."

Interesting? Yeah. Just a little.

Of course we heeded his advice and we all came back in once piece. You'll be pleased to know that our search was not in vain. With Clement's skill and our willingness to cooperate, we got very up close and personal with some very, very large crocodiles indeed.
