Chobe National Park, Botswana

We stayed at Chobe Chilwero Lodge overlooking the Chobe River and the Caprivi flood planes. In the morning we did a morning game drive along the Chobe River. Lots of elephants with some new babies. The babies were always surrounded by several adults to provide protection. We also encountered a pride of lions that had killed a buffalo that morning. Interesting that 3 other buffalo came very close to the pride. Our guide said that were pissed off, before we were aware of the buffalo the male lion was the first to react and then several of the female lions rose. This did not stop the lions from feeding, but I guess the buffalo wanted to make some kind of statement. At dusk we did a cruise on the Chobe River, lots of hippos, crocodiles, buffaloes.

The hippo is the most dangerous animal in Africa
