Botswana: Okavango Delta Safari 2013: Day 6

Another beautiful sunrise, and another great day!  A hyena den site was our first success of the morning, with a female and a youngster active around the den. A large herd of buffalo, many great birds (including the aways difficult to find broad-billed roller) and several herds of hippo were seen throughout the day, but there was one species that dominated – elephants!  Around every turn, at every water source and at every other sighting we were at, there were herds of elephants!  The day was ended by a very camera-aware leopard; she posed for us for over an hour, right up until the very last of the light.

Major sightings of the day:

  • Spotted hyena and cub at their den site
  • Several herds of hippos
  • Over 200 elephants
  • Large herd of buffalo
  • Broad-billed roller
  • 1 lioness
  • Ground hornbills
  • Leopard in a tree
