Sunset on the Chobe River

The Chobe River is a tributary of the mighty Zambezi River and forms the border between Botswana and Namibia. The Chobe National Park is situated on the southern banks of the river and is home to large herds of elephants, hippo’s, antelopes and a wide variety of birdlife. One of the highlights of my trip to this region was the cruise on the Zambezi Queen and watching the sunset on the Chobe river from the top-deck, glass of vino in hand.

Sunset in Cape Town

I took this photo from the top of the Pepper Club Hotel in Cape Town as the sun was setting, casting a bright yellow glow on Table Mountain. The hotel sure has amazing 360 degree views of the city, Table Mountain and Table Bay.

Sunset at the Gulf of Aqaba

Aqaba is an important port town in Jordan and is situated on the Gulf of Aqaba. This little piece of coastline, bordering Israel and Saudi Arabia, is Jordan’s only access to the sea. The amazing coral reefs just off the shore make Aqaba a popular diving destination. This picture was taken at sunset from the luxurious Kempinski Aqaba Resort. The Israeli town of Eilat is situated on the right of the photo whilst the mountains behind which the sun is setting are in Egypt.
