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.
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.
We are back in Botswana! Bring on the adventure and wild animals! Our first outing is on the Boro River in the Okavango Delta.
