Botswana: Okavango Delta Safari 2013: Day 8

A day that starts with 17 wild dogs chasing 3 hyenas is never really going to be a bad day!  This action was all on our way to enjoy an amazing makoro experience. These traditional canoes take you quietly through the waters of the Okavango Delta, giving you a close-up look at the smaller animals.  A large herd of buffalo met us at the end of the makoro experience, quickly followed by a herd of elephants.  The day closed off with a female leopard in a tree with a kill and a relaxed african wild cat.

Major sightings of the day:

  • 17 wild dogs (8 pups) chasing 3 hyena
  • Large herd of buffalo
  • Herd of elephants drinking
  • Good general game
  • Small herd of elephants
