Okavango Machaba Day 2: Elephant encounters


ODP Blog - Okavango Machaba - Wild Dogs Scrutinise Us – during our Sundowner Break

We have time between morning game drives and evening game drives. Sometimes I nap. Sometimes I watch the Khwai river go by. At night, the river's hippos laugh and the trees' Franklins fight.

We encountered a herd of elephants on our evening game drive.

Later, we encountered a bull along the river road and had ourselves "a moment".

The photo highlight of the day, for me, was a reflection in the gloaming. My fellow travelers were quite energized by an encounter with wild dogs and were discussing it at the sundowner. ODP guide, Andrew, and I were drawn to this scene and stepped away from the festivities to capture it. My landscape tendencies were showing.
