Botswana: Okavango Delta Safari 2013: Day 10

The mood is always a little bit sombre on the final morning, but was picked up substantially by a great surprise – a rare sable antelope.  A large male sable popped out of the bushes right next to us, and then had the courtesy to let us follow him for a good 20 minutes!  After the sable had left us, we went back to see what the situation was with the leopard and her tsessebe kill.  She had brought the kill down the tree and was quietly munching away on the floor, giving us a good clear view.  A wattled crane and 2 large herds of elephants with little babies drinking sealed off a great safari!

Major sightings of the day:

  • Sable antelope
  • Female leopard feeding on kill
  • Wattled crane
