A buffalo herd blocks the trail. This is their land so you must wait. Slowly they move and the four-wheel drive kicks up mud as you drive on. Now an elephant blocks the way. It’s a big herd, complete with babies swinging their trunks.
A little later you stop to see a lion pride. A dozen lions are snoozing. Three of them wake up and decide to sleep in the shade created by your vehicle. You can literally reach out and touch them (not advised of course, the windows are kept closed at such proximity).
Now zebra, lechwe, Sable antelope, spotted hyena, kudu, springbok, topi, giraffe, hippo, and so many other animals you lose count. This is the Okavango and a private game drive will reveal a story of untold wildlife drama and charm.
