The river runs down

After months of torrents of water running down the Rufiji river, collected from a watershed that is roughly 1000 kilometers long, the golden sandbanks have returned.

 



 

As impressissive as the brimming Rufiji is, however, the sandbanks bring with them plenty to enjoy: crocs sunbathing on the white sand, hippos enjoying an afternoon stroll, giraffes and waterbuck taking advantage of the safe and open areas to drink, and countless birds fishing or pecking through sand in search of food.
