Our first two days in the Okovango Delta…

Our first two days in the Okovango Delta delivered a lone lioness hunting as well as excellent views of a Serval cat that was only a few meters away from our vehicle. Birding has been excellent and we saw two Pel’s fishing Owls as well as a Vereaux’s eagle owl. Yellow fronted tinker bird, Black collared and Crested barbets, Striped, malachite and pied Kingfishers, Bataleur and African fish eagle are very common.

Our second two days in the Delta delivered a lot more animals. Cheetah on two consecutive days, 2 male Lions, Waterbuck, Impala, Elephant, Red lechwe, Greater kudu and Hippo. But most of all, cheetah, lion and leopard in one day!

Mahango Park in Namibia also proved to be great, as usual! Roan and sable antelope, Buffalo and lots of good birding that included Dickinson’s kestrel, Wattled Crane!

Etosha was the best with great views of three separate cheetah, several lion and a lion pride of 12 that included a huge male only a couple of meters from our vehicle. Elephant herds of 28 and 42 at Goas and Okaukuejo waterholes respectively. Good views of Hyena. All in all, Etosha is tops for wildlife viewing!
