African wild dogs, aka painted dogs, prowl the west end of Chobe National Park in search of prey, checking out the smorgasbord on the plain and in a lake.
Round and round the west end of Chobe National Park we go, on the 4WD tracks. We saw heaps of cool wildlife doing interesting things, like a jackal feeding her pups.
For four nights, as we camped along the Okavango River, we shared our campsite with sleepy bee-eaters, after their busy days of . . . well, eating bees.
Driving all the way through Chobe National Park we found where the elephants were hiding and discovered a truth about yesterday’s lions.
The one animal we thought we were most likely to see on the Chobe riverfront was a no-show, but loads of others turned out, including some big surprises!
Nata Bird Sanctuary provided great sightings of wildebeest, flamingos, and more, and at Elephant Sands we camped where elephants strolled.
