Flashback Friday: Remembering the Wonders of Chobe National Park

Randy and Wes watching elephants in Chobe Botswana, 2009.

On this Flashback Friday I’m looking back at Chobe National Park. I have extraordinary memories of our safari in Chobe, Botswana. Chobe National Park is the most diverse park in Botswana, and is bordered by the Chobe River (water = crocs and hippos!). On the far shore is Namibia. We saw so many different kinds of animals, but everyone goes to Chobe for the Elephants. On a continent where they are so ruthlessly hunted, Chobe National Park has been a haven for them.

Adorable baby.
These teenage males were practicing their fighting skills.
Nice, cool drink
Hippos are huge, fearsome creatures.
“Pigs in mud”, hippos, really.

I love giraffes.

The birds in Africa are incredibly colorful. This is a Lilac Breasted Roller.
We saw some huge crocs!
A rare, beautiful male Sable Antelope.
This Red Lechwe has to be one of the cutest antelopes on the planet.
Velvet Monkeys are always up to something!
I loved how birds just hung out on the animals.
