Elephant on the Chobe River #botswana #chobenationalpark

Seemingly alone beneath a blazing sky, many threats skulk between the low-lying scrub of Savuti. This giraffe is certainly not the only animal approaching the waterhole at sunset, but his unique view gives him an advantage over the rest. Photo by @shannon__wild

“We admire elephants in part because they demonstrate what we consider the finest human traits: empathy, self-awareness, and social intelligence. But the way we treat them puts on display the very worst of human behavior.”

“Botswana is also the only country in the world with a colour in its flag meant to represent rain (a sort of blue-grey). Not many people know this.” Terry Pratchett

Did you know that Botswana is the size of France? However, it has a population of only around 2 million people as opposed to France with almost 70 million. If you are a traveller like us, Botswana might not be on the top of your bucket list but it definitely has some interesting features that will make you want to pay a visit to this country.

Botswana is home to the Kalahari Desert which takes up about 80% of the entire land. This desert got its name from the Setswana word Kgalagadi which literally translates as the ”the water-less place”. Even its official currency, the Botswana Pula, which means “rain”, was designed to stand for something valuable and scarce. The word also serves as the official motto of the country. It was first introduced in August 1976 and it can be subdivided into 100 thebe.

However, it is argued that The Kalahari desert is not a true desert, because it gets more rainfall than any other desert in the world. It receives 5-10 inches annually and this is why many people consider it as a fossil desert. It is the sixth largest sandy desert and it supports over four hundred species of plants. This is mainly due to its ability to retain water a little longer than normal.

The desert is also home to many animals ranging from Meerkats, Flamingos, and Leopards to African wild dogs some of which kept us wide awake well into the night.

🇧🇼🇧🇼🇧🇼 safári na África está na lista de prioridades dos viajantes que gostam de vida selvagem. Infelizmente, se você quiser vivenciar a rotina dos animais por lá, terá que preparar o bolso, ou não... 😁
Você já ouviu falar da Nomad Adventure Tours? Eles têm um roteiro diferenciado, em que o turista viaja com o grupo em um caminhão e dorme em barraca. É claro que dessa forma, o sonho de conhecer os animais africanos pode se tornar realidade, não é mesmo?
Aqui temos um post explicando como funciona 👇

Several of the 100,000 or so elephants that inhabit the area in and around Chobe National Park in northern Botswana. Unfortunately, photos don’t do a great job of illustrating the social structures of each group and the personalities of the individual elephants; the things that make elephants so much fun to watch. Note: if there was ever a contest for cutesy baby animals, baby elephants take the cake. Sorry goats.

Interesting wildlife sightings don't always have to be big animals. Seeing this Monitor Lizard on the Chobe was unique, and gave our group something different to shoot!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Still pinching myself. This many animals in 1 place. A lot of them, we don’t even need to look for. They’re just walking down the road!#bucketlist✔️ #botswana #chobenationalpark

When hippos yawn it is a threat display. Note the long, sharp front teeth which are effective weapons. #tailormadesafaris #chobenationalpark #Botswana #hippo #hippopotamus #yawning

MUTUALISTIC • 🦓
A good example of a mutualistic relationship is that of oxpecker and zebras. Oxpeckers land on zebras and eat ticks and other parasites that congregate on their skin. The oxpeckers get fed and the zebras, in turn, receive most welcome pest control 👍 ©️ Andrew Sproule Photography

Survival of the fittest holds true in Southern Africa. Where an animal finds an advantage, it exploits that and thrives! Weaver nests are all over the countryside, every second tree littered with them. The Cape (Glossy) Starling benefits from the abandoned nests and thrives also. #harbsdoafrica #potd #birdsofafrica @elephant_sands_botswana

A few years ago, I went to Chobe National Park in Botswana that will always be a highlight of my many travels. Chobe is known for its many elephants and during a day there, we saw maybe 500 of them! If you want to experience elephants, go to Chobe! 🐘

Botswana- so many Leopards. Join me again next year as we take you through some of the highlights of this beautiful country. The beauty lies in the bewilderment...& we provide it all. Let’s go! @jaredincpt @suretravelsa @actionford #chobenationalpark #okavangodelta #khwai #safari #leefjoureis #botswana #leopard (DM for more info)

“We admire elephants in part because they demonstrate what we consider the finest human traits: empathy, self-awareness, and social intelligence. But the way we treat them puts on display the very worst of human behavior.” ― Graydon Carter

Did you know that the African elephant can live up to 80 years?

If you want to see elephants, Botswana is the place to be in Africa. Not only because there are more African elephants in Botswana than anywhere else, but also because it’s a country where most of them roam freely, far away from captivity.

We experienced Africa, first hand, when we stayed in Elephant Sands, an unfenced 16000 ha private conservancy & campsite. We stayed in a tent and needless to say we were a bit worried when we got a warning not to leave the tent after 10pm. Luckily everything went smooth and we really had a unique experience looking the elephants only a couple of meters away from us.

We also visited Chobe National Park, the first national park in Botswana which has the largest number of elephants in Botswana, over 50,000. Most of them can easily be seen during the dry season when large herds of elephants make their way to the river banks of the Chobe river. Although, by size, it is the third largest park in the country, after the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Gemsbok National Park, it for sure is the most biologically diverse.

Check out this amazing National Park in our latest Youtube video. You can find a link to our channel in our bio.

Have you ever just started snapping and looked at your photos to discover that you've accidentally snapped something cool? Elephant at sunset with some birds. Not the most fabulous of exposures, but it was too cool of a shot with the sun, elley, and birds that I had to share!

Luck had it that we were to witness the last vestiges of carrion which our unfortunate victim, Monsieur Water Buffalo, was able to display so courteously. The kill is not always visible, nor is the pageantry of the various species of birds of prey surreptitiously attempting to make off with what little meat they can before the lioness family returns, which they did...just after this shot was snapped as it was to be.
