Back from Africa
Skeleton Coast was simply otherworldly, interesting time at Doro Nawas with outings to San rock engravings ; petrified forest, fascinating San interpretive walk, hundreds of oryx, springbok, beautiful black-maned lions at Kalahari Plains, leopards hanging from trees at Tubu, cheetah kill @ Selinda, wild dogs, mating leopards at Dumatau, excellent water activities at Banoka, and vehicles swimming at Duba... And lots of lions everywhere, climbing onto all kinds of things including woodpiles and termite hills.
Here are three of my favorite pics from the trip, so far - haven't even looked at them all yet:
A very relaxed leopard at Tubu Tree Camp in the Okavango Delta, Botswana
A young lion cub at Duba clambered onto this vantage point, awaiting the arrival of its dad, the dominant male lion in the area (Tsaro pride).
These two Hartmann's Mountain Zebras obligingly stood still for just a few seconds right in front of a bush at Desert Rhino Camp in the Kaokoveld region of Namibia.
