Photo by @christurtleboyes | The Okavango Delta’s great guardians! Hippos, crocodiles and elephants are integral in the functioning and future of Botswana’s wetland wonderland, and our greatest safety concern while traveling through these wild areas. With respect and learning we can share this space. We at the @intotheokavango project are so excited to get back out for our 10th annual biodiversity transect across the entire delta using mekoro (standup canoe). Historically low floodwaters prompted us to do an aerial survey of the new route we will be attempting into the remotest areas of the Okavango, we are happy with what ...

Learning from elephants. A2A Traveller @krista.parkinson takes a leaf out of the 🐘 playbook. . Students and fresh grads interested in a career in Hollywood, there is no better resource. Check her bio! . Regram from @krista.parkinson: . “🐘 Wanna grab a drink? . These elephants know how to congregate, network and connect at the watering hole. They travel in a herd or parade and watching the old and young gather was magical. . The older elephants really looked out for the young ones and it is a good reminder about making sure you connect not just with other assistants ...

If a safari is on your bucket list—and if it isn’t, it really ought to be—your first one should definitely be in Botswana. The country's appeal as a classic safari destination is timeless, boasting both a great mix of topographical diversity as well as a staggering range of activities, all in a fairly compact region. The Okavango Delta, with its iconic lodges, should be the first place you visit. Due to the low number of beds at the camps, we advise planning your safari six months in advance. Meet our list of pros and start planning YOUR adventure - link ...
#repost @jamesinchobe ・・・ We had too much fun exploring deep into the Xugana concession area of the Okavango over the long weekend. Although drier than normal there is a decent amount of water around and still rising in some parts.
Seguimos en África pero en esta ocasión viajamos hasta el Delta del Okavango donde nuestros viajeros Gonzálo y María nos han mandado también un montón de fotos geniales de su viaje por Botswana y Mauricio. Gracias a todos nuestros viajeros que comparten sus aventuras con nosotros. Nos encanta, de verdad!! 😍 . #botswana#deltaokavango

As our time with the KhoiSan came to an end, we headed further north in Botswana and did our final Safari trips through the Okavango Delta. The sunsets did not disappoint...especially with this crew! 🇧🇼❤️// . #fullheart#sunsets

This was literally, “look.... geese” swing the camera up and fire off half a dozen shots. The rest were garbage but this one with all four lined up and evenly spaced is rather nice. If the third ones head was properly visible would have been proper! #geese#africa
W A T E R B U C K . . Waterbuck are a large, robust species of antelope, with males weighing up to 250-275kg. There are 2 distinct species - Common Waterbuck (Southern Africa) and Defassa Waterbuck (north-eastern Africa). Waterbuck graze mainly on grass near permanent water sources. . . . #didyouknow Waterbuck have an oily secretion that covers their coat which can give off a bad odour. The myth is that this deters predators; nonetheless, they are regularly preyed upon by Lion and Leopard . . . . #antelope ...
Day 3-5: we got locals to take us out on boats to an island where we set up camp. We stayed on that island, camping, for three days. We would walk at sunset and sunrise and run into Hippos, Elephants, Giraffes, Zebras, Buffaloes, Impala, Warthogs, and co. Seeing these animals on foot, from meters away, unprotected, was surreal- so much cooler than seeing everything from the window of a Range Rover.
Day 54-6: Loved being on the Okavango Delta (better pictures to follow once I download them from my camera). The Mokoro (canoe) was soso relaxing and it was great to go for a walk and explore, and almost be charged by an elephant 😂 a particular highlight was flying over the delta at the end, even if the plane was so bumpy I almost vomited every time it moved 🙈
