I found myself somewhere the other day that I hadn’t been planning: Botswana.
I guess I never realized the ease of crossing borders in this part of Africa. Before, borders meant three days waiting in a capital. This border was crossed on a whim. My destination in Botswana was Chobe National Park.
It was essentially a wildlife photographer’s dream location. When we first entered Chobe National Park, I asked our guide to stop for an elephant I spotted while up on the hill. He responded with “sure, but we’ll see lots more.”
Still, I didn’t want to risk it and took about 10 snaps of the elephant about a kilometer away.
Over the next two days in Chobe National Park, I would estimate I saw some 500 elephants.
Moreover, we saw dozens of giraffe, loads of hippos, a couple lions, and a wild variety other animals. What I’m showing you here is a mere collection of photos I took while on safari in Chobe National Park. One could easily spend months shooting the park and not take a single bad image. I hope you enjoy looking at the photos half as much as I enjoyed taking them.
