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!
Hippos, hippos, hippos. Hippos in water; hippos on land. Hippos acting like hippos, yawning, water scooping, sparring, and doing that nasty thing they do.
Wildlife sightings to and on the Khwai River more than make up for a horrendously bumpy road, a flat tire, and a shortened visit.
Our first day trip out of Maun, a safari self-drive out the sand road to the South Gate of Moremi National Park, gave us some nice views of wildlife.
Eating elephants. Elephants eating. Get a close-up view of an elephant’s trunk as it pulls grass, aligns it, and “washes” it before eating it.
