Camp Okavango – Okavango, Delta

2020-02-12T16:54:49-08:00February 11th, 2020|Wildlife Photography Blog|

After four nights at Camp Moremi our next stop was Camp Okavango, with another set of great guides and staff At this camp there are no Landcruisers. If you walk, it's with  an unarmed guide, since no guns are allowed The mokoro rides are with a guide that moves you through the reeds with a large pole  They had powerboats just like at Camp Moremi, and took us to the islands in the area for our walking tour Our rooms were large, luxurious, comfortable, and with a huge bathroom and shower. The shower was so large we could have had a party in

In September Dr. P met his cousin in the Puget sound area to enjoy the beautiful scenery and look for Orcas. We hired a private boat and guide from Maya Legacy in Friday harbor. Allen our guide did a great job, and we learned much and saw many pods. His assistants April and Zoe also helped out. We were in a part of a large ecosystem called the Salish Sea that is filled with salmon breeding grounds, which has attracted Orcas.

The Active Zebra of the Okavango Delta

The zebra in this part of Africa are called the Common Zebra, also known as the Burchell's Zebra. These are the same ones you see throughout East Africa.

Elephants of the Okavango Delta

The waterways of the Okavango Delta attract large numbers of elephants for obvious reasons. You will frequently see them on land, on the islands, at the water's edge, and in the water.

This one was not happy with our presence, and our guide made
