Plumeria, hibiscus, lemons, limes, papayas, giant eagle-owls, paradise flycatchers, sausage trees, and more. Welcome to an oasis in Maun, Botswana.
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!
