Favorite Animal Photos from Africa

Here are my favorite photos of African animals from our trip to southern Africa last year. These photos were taken on safari in Etosha National Park, Namibia, Chobe National Park, Botswana, and South Luangwa National Park, Zambia.

In Namibia, we rented a two-wheel drive car and spent a week driving around Etosha National Park. Animals congregate at the waterholes and spotting wildlife is very easy. Learning how to drive a stick-shift with the steering wheel on the right, or British side, was a challenge. We stayed in the center of the national park at Halali camp where each evening we watched the as animals congregated at the floodlit waterhole.

In Botswana, we took a three-day/two-night camping safari that included two boat trips on the Chobe River. All the animals in the area congregate at the river at the end of the dry season and the amount of wildlife was mind-blowing.

Lastly, we visited South Luangwa national park in Zambia where we had hippos, elephants, baboons, mongoose and monkeys all wandering in and through our camp. On our last outing, we had the luck to have a close encounter with a pride of lions with four young cubs.
