In the northern regions of Botswana, particularly the Okavango Delta region where water is in abundance, Mokoros are a traditional (and also the most common) form of travel for the locals. Not only is it easy to traverse the many channels, they also make it possible to get to places which cannot be achieved by motorised vehicles.
These days Mokoro rides are a popular tourist attraction.
This picture was taken as I did the tourist thing and rode in a Mokoro. Travelling in front of me were some locals. The serene calmness of the natural environment, gentle soft clashing of the water and the contrast in colours took me to a place of tranquility hard to describe in words. A place many of us in the big cities try to create for ourselves artificially. It was a pity my ride lasted only a few hours.
