A night in the Okavango Delta was a night to remember for sure. We were taken into the delta on old traditional cano type boats. We slept at a cool little campsite with nothing more than a hole in the ground for a toilet. Our stay in the delta included a nature walk were we encountered an elephant, herd of zebras as well as a multitude of birds. While seeing an elephant in the wild while on foot was amazing the highlight of the stay was an amazing dinner cooked on the campfire (cake and all). The entertainment (singing and dancing) was provided by the local people taking care of us giving the group a taste of Botswana's culture.
The next destination was Chobi national park. During a boat cruise on the Chobi river I saw hippos, buffalos, crocodiles and more. Highlight being an elephant herd crossing the river no more than 50 meters away from us.
The last activity in Botswana was a early morning game drive in the freezing cold. The difficult start was worth the effort as we saw a group of 17 lions munch on a giraffe they had taken down two days earlier. Throw in 50 (alive) giraffes, a ton of buffalos as well as elephants, jackals, impalas, hippos and baboons and you get one epic game drive. Surely a great ending to a fun time in Botswana. Tomorrow we'll cross the border over to Zimbabwe where one of Africa's main attraction lies... Victoria Falls.
