Some signs warn against elephants – here’s one in Botswana – and we really did see elephants roaming free outside the boundaries of reserves.


And here’s me walking on a pontoon leading to a rudimentary floating bar on the Zambezi in Namibia. We were camping – unfenced – on the riverside not 20 metres away from this, by the way…


I love the homemade nature of this one we spotted in Botswana. Check out that text:


‘You can be left totally wasted’. Words more suitable for a warning against substance abuse, perhaps?

And this is just plain bizarre:


Perhaps the sign writer was totally wasted?
