Dream, Explore, Discover
As we flew toward Savute I was filled with eager anticipation about the wildlife we would encounter. Suddenly I spotted two elephants in a waterhole below us and snapped a quick picture. Elephant sightings are always a great way to begin a safari. Botswana always provides us with a great safari experience and this time would prove to be exceptional.
We had a fabulous time photographing three different prides of lions with small cubs. They were absolutely captivating to watch and great fun to photograph!
Cautious cubs at the edge of the Chobe River.
This mud bath feels so good!
Spoonbills take flight while male Red Lechwe chases off his competitor.
He’s gaining ground!
This one must be a lover and not a fighter. Looks like he is hiding from the tough guys.
One Happy Elephant!
Here Mom, I Can help!
Hey! That is my piece of meat.
The buffalo made a good meal for the whole pride.
Pardon me, is this seat be available?
But Mom, I wasn’t trying to get this dirty.
Under Protective Custody.
African Wild Dogs
We encountered many wild dogs in both Botswana and Zambia.

In the fight, one Cape buffalo bull lifts the other up in the air! They weigh 2000 pounds!
Then punishes him mercilessly while he is down! The one on the ground was lucky that after the beating he was able to get up and run away.
