Cattle watch the water sampling team as they move down the river conducting water quality sampling. Sampling is extensive and occurs along the Chobe River in both protected, township and agricultural areas. Erosion is evident along the banks of the river both in human modified landscapes and the Chobe National Park. Erosion in the park is attributed to high speed boat movement and wakes that erode river banks.
