Hamerkop Camp

First camp along the river. Hamerkop is Afrikaans for "hammer head", the name of the rocky hill on the right of the photo, just beyond the canoe. The camp site varies depending on the level of the river and preferences of the guide. On this occasion we parked off on the sandbank in the background and picked prime sleeping spots under the thorn trees beyond the sand. Got to be careful if you have a blow-up camp mattress. There are no little white picket fences demarcating camp sites, just find somewhere nice and spread out, crack a beer and relax. If you are stressed up this is the place to come to. It is out of cellphone coverage!
