It was our last morning at the Moremi Game Reserve on the Okavango Delta when we were visited by this gorgeous male elephant, right outside our tent cabin, just as the sun started to rise.

The Okavango is a large inland delta, a freshwater wetland, at the heart of Botswana’s arid Kalahari Desert and is a World Heritage site. To get there we had to fly for nearly two hours in a 4-passsenger bush plane from a small airport in Kasane to a tiny runway in the delta. Our guide had to chase baboons and warthogs off the runaway so that our little plane could land.

Each morning and afternoon at Moremi was spent watching the wildlife as we cruised in local canoes known as mokoros.
