First up is the Red Lechwe. This animal is numerous on the Chobe floodplains, waterside grasses being its favourite grazing. It is also at home in the water. The two in the foreground are males since they have horns.
Next we have one of The Big Five, so named because they were the most difficult and dangerous for big game hunters to hunt on foot. This African Buffalo, is considered one of the most dangerous animals in the continent. It has few predators with an adult male weighing close to a ton. There are a couple of shots below that show what a powerful animal it is.
Below we have a female Waterbuck. The males have horns. I think I may have said in an earlier post that they can be recognised by the white circle on their rump. The second photo shows this clearly.
And finally, a few shots of a herd of Impala. As also said before, these are most readily recognised by the McDonald’s logo on their rump. At least that is what the Big Cats think!
I’ll be back with a few more from the morning of Day 4, so please take a look if you have the time. If you wish to look at the start of this story, it can be found here.
