a glimpse

 

glimpse: FROM A TO B | To those born into the lush maze that is the Okavango Delta, navigating the myriad waterways on a Mokoro must come as naturally as walking. Propelled by pushing a pole into the muddy ground beneath the shallow waters, the slender canoe glides stealthily through the marshland, where Hippo encounters are to be avoided at all costs. While in many parts of the world the only remnants of such traditions are lackluster tourism interpretations, the Mokoro is a standard way of transporting goods and getting from A to B until today.

Do you really want to spot game during a game WALK?
