Game Drive in the Okavango Delta

Our game drive into the Okavango Delta was productive on many fronts. Students set their motion sensor cameras which will collect data over the next few days. While driving to various sights, we saw elephants, a Steenbok (smallest antelope), zebra, giraffe, warthogs, reed buck, and red lechwe. Once cameras were set our mission was to locate the lions. It took us quite a while to find them but we found two females lounging in the brush. The male lion remains elusive and had traveled too far away for us to pursue. At the end of the day, we came upon a leopard which was sitting upon a termite mound. We watched it as it was in pursuit of dinner or perhaps an appetizer. It ran into the grass, thus out of our sight. All in all a successful day exploring the magnificent sights in the Delta, the only delta in the world which flows into the sand instead of into a body of water.
