At the end of the afternoon, The Wandelgek boarded a ship with two decks, and an open view over the grand river Zambezi from all sides of the ship. There were drinks on board including several African beers. But first things first. The boat started to move.
The first part of the boat cruise was marked by many meetings with beautiful animals on the shores.
and while the sun was slowly setting, The Wandelgek saw Crocodiles and Hippos and on the shore some huge male Elephants…
Then the sun went down really slowly and I wasn’t prepared for its beauty, not even after seeing several awesome African sunsets before. This one topped them all and is probably the most beautiful sunset I ever saw…
I was really silent now and I think I remember everyone becoming silent. The skipper had turned of the motor of the boat and we were drifting in what seemed to be fluid gold…
Some might say that sunsets are awesome everywhere and although that is probably true (having seen some awesome sunsets in very different parts of the world myself), African sunsets have something that tops mosts of the others…
The boat moved back to shore and another grand adventure: An African sunset on the Zambezi River had filled my memories.
