Chobe National Park
Take a Safari
It is true that a safari could be a "once in a lifetime" journey, but you will certainly hope not, once you have visited the "wildlife" at home in their environment. It is hard to describe the majesty of a herd of elephants or the size of the hippos in a pod in the river or hundreds of cape buffalo headed your way. Zebras, hyenas, lions, leopards and cheetahs... OH MY! these moments can overwhelm you with their beauty and bring you to tears. But there are also moments like the one pictured above that just plain make you laugh. We were on the river near a large herd of elephants—mostly a breeding herd but we also came across this bull at just the moment of "relief"—he released a number of gallons into the river, and clearly this gave him some pleasure as his eyes rolled back into his head... Timing is everything!
