Some of animal and bird sightings
Warthog…Botswana Rhino Sanctuary

The first sighting of many that day.

So much pettier than its

Finally, the totally unexpected animal sighted in Africa.
Although after passing through a few Kalahari villages
we did get used to seeing donkeys.
… lost Painted Wild Dogs ventured into our camp
looking for their mates, that this was
the best photo I managed.
Their mates had been chasing a water-buck,
no more than 40 metres from our camp.
Apparently they hunt in pairs and in relay.
These two (there was a pair)
had arrived for the batten change
after the other runners had passed.
We had the thrill of seeing them so close.
