6 March 2015 – Chobe to Okavango Delta • Moremi area
It was early out on our way to the airport in Kasane. The road travels through the park which might just explain why we made a stop for the two young lions hanging out in the road.
There was wifi at Kasane which was why I was able to post and get out an email in the 10 minutes we were in the airport. The new area has no communications other than radio. Camp Seba, at 45 minutes from the nearest town or village is outside of tower and repeater range. On the other hand – hello! We were diverted to this camp (the original camp is undergoing renovations) which turns out to be Five Star and well earned. The accommodations are lovely, the people incredible and there is no way I need this much delicious food on offer four times a day not counting tea breaks. For the rest of the group – alcohol included is a serious side benefit.
After settling in, we resumed our explorations.
Of note – Range Rovers. Purpose built vehicle. Can’t beat it for ability to get around in extremely rough territory. Other than Jeeps – can’t think of another vehicle that could manage. Spotting the elusive 7-8 headed range rover became a running joke.
Camp Sebu belongs to Wilderness Tours – the contact operator for our safari. Here in the Okavango Delta there are both public parks and a number of leased concessions. The rules on concessions are a bit looser than national parks: here the guides are allowed to go off road when following certain wild animals. Lions and leopards for example.
From here – you get photos….. lots of photos. I have done some cropping and shrinking – no editing in terms of color changes or airbrushing. And, in case you are wondering – that hyena is chewing on a water buffalo caracas that has aged about two months.
