We spent a pleasant afternoon and evening on the Zambesi River.
 The White-fronted Bee-eaters were in evidence along the banks, and we saw numerous colonies of them

We stopped for a while on this island in the middle of the Zambesi.
  During the breeding season, June to September, this sandbank
is the home to thousands of Carmine Bee-eaters.  The sand has a peculiar texture
 and makes a squeaking noise when you walk on it.  Kenneth was our local guide.
  The far bank is Zambia.

Another glorious sunset.
