Great holmertz 2012-10-25 10:51

Hello Malgorzata,
Apart from elephants, hippos and crocodiles, what about bilharzia? This is a fine evening view with good colours. But in what way would the Polish wetlands look different?
Kind regards,

Default To holmertz: Bilharzia

Hi Gert, Our guides and polers told us it was safe. Swimming in stagnant water is a problem. The Okavango delta water is clear and is safe to drink and swim in in many places.
We have wetlands in Poland but I do not think it is possible to go around by boat. but I wasn't there. And there are other differenvces (apart from crocs, elephants and hippos). The plants are quite different - papyrus, strange trees, like sausage trees (with very beatiful flowers), amarula trees 9locals make beer or wine), termites, and so on and of courses different birds.
