Safari at Muchenje Lodge

A lilac breasted roller, I think. No shortage of birds along the Chobe River. 
Paul, our very fine guide, with our reflections in his glasses.

Thirty or more hippos were grazing at our lunch stop. 
Impala were everywhere...hundreds of babies were in sight.

This lion charged our vehicle. He was chawing on a water buffalo when we drove by.  He ran at us, stopped about 6 meters away and gave us a warning roar. Richard caught the look in his eyes. I was relieved when he turned and walked away. You can see his snout is bloody.


  1. Such wonderful pictures (except the lion with the blood). That bird is fantastic!
