'Boro Polers'. Botswana, April 2018
The Okavango Delta is one of the most extraordinary places of Botswana. It's the largest inland delta in the world. In the Delta there is a small village called Boro, situated at a waterfront. From there, you can make a mokoro trip; a dugout canoe which is operated by a poler. Boro village consists almost completely of families of polers. These guides learned the trade often from their parents or relatives. They are well-organised and are being represented by a local trust.
Unfortunately, we couldn't make pictures off-shore, but a lot of polers were happy being portrayed on the shore. Our guide 'Ranger' helped us in taking these pictures.
