Botswana: Okavango Delta Safari 2013: Day 4

The buffalos and the lions met up first thing this morning.  It took a while for the action to start, but when it did it was madness!  For forty minutes the lions attacked the herd of buffalo only to be attacked in return by the large bovids.  Eventually the lions managed to catch a calf, and the herd had to accept the fate of their young companion and move on.

The afternoon saw us arrive at our next camp, and we were welcomed by a newborn tsessebe.  Many herds of elephants and a large herd of hippo entertained us until the sun went down when we found 3 male lions feeding on large buffalo.

Major sightings of the day:

  • 4 lions killing buffalo
  • Large herd of buffalo
  • Large male elephants
  • Several herds of elephants with small calves
  • Large herd of hippo
  • Newborn tsessebe
