On our Botswana safari, after the Chobe River cruise, we left the town of Kasane and headed back to Chobe National Park. As we turned on to the highway back to Chobe, this elephant was eating grass next to the road, acting as an advertisement for the park entrance 4 km away. Where does the 8,000 pound elephant eat? Where ever she wants to!
This elephant roaming the highway outside the park reminds me of a letter to the editor of a local newspaper, complaining that the deer are crossing the road where no deer crossing signs are posted, endangering drivers.
Back in the park, a tree of roosting storks next to the Chobe River.
We saw a double rainbow, formed by sunlight reflecting twice through raindrops.
And a rainbow over this impala herd.
A pair of red lechwe,
While we were enjoying the antics of dung beetles, the driver of our other truck radioed to tell us about lions. We sped off. We found a pride of contented lions.
Folks in the other truck have photos of lion cubs with red around their mouths, but we arrived too late to see this.
