Sunset over the Chobe Botswana

As the sun was setting over the vast expanse of Chobe National Park I was hoping for one more Safari adventure with Salute Africa.  The picture above does not really portray the tranquility of the sun setting over the Serengeti.   It is hard to explain the feeling of being one small person among so many wild animals roaming on reserve, but free.  The sights and smell will remain with me for a life time.

This little baby Baboon was only a few days.  As our jeep passed by the parents whisked the baby away and had very protective, don’t mess with us faces.

On our safari we saw so many elephants.  Each elephant was unique and had its own personality. The first picture a group of elephants are wallowing in the mud, this is how they stay cool in the hot Serengeti.  The second picture our jeep got a little too close and you can see the Bull elephant starting to challenge us.

This pride of female lions lay along the Chobe River where all the necessities in life were fairly easy for them.  I was amazed that our jeep was only a few feet from them and they just ignored us

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
