Some last appetizers before the report!   Swainson's francolin     Ground hornbill     And last but not least, the Tsaro pride  

It isn't the first time I post this pic. For me, it tells a story about lion's determination to hunt buffalo.

Too cute ... this aardwolf   More pics to come from mid October.

The tents were still connected by simple paths in 2010. The pics posted by AKR1 look just like it did then.

Pangolin is right- they are still connected by simple paths. I loved the Do Not Disturb sign which was 40 yards from the tent!!

Duba Plains boat dock- this channel leads into the permanent water of the Okavango delta.

One difference may be that in March of 2010, boats were not used. It was a 45 minute slog through Marsh Madness and over the Crossing of Death to get to the plains.

Depending on the floods it's still a slog with the vehicles. The boats are only used for water safaris in the delta specifically where there is permanent water. It's definitely an advantage to be able to cruise past paradise island but there is still no way to get a vehicle there. However, the high quality of the marine activities at Duba was an unexpected surprise.

Really? Any reason why only the side-striped in Duba?

 

Not sure you guys saw the latest newsletter - some new unknown male Lion made the area.
