“Keeper of Chobe” A large elephant makes it way to the edge of one of the many islands in the Chobe River, Botswana. I have enjoyed Chobe National Park several times and am hoping to wander further into beautiful Botswana in the future. The Okavango is a must place to see, that is still on my wish list. Now if Botswana would figure out a humane, ethical, economically beneficial way to deal with the huge number of elephants in their country. #bokovoyphotography#botswana ...
From Mokgweetsi Masisi, a government official in Botswana: While it is true that we are lifting the ban on hunting, we are doing so in an extremely limited, tightly controlled fashion. We are not engaging in anything remotely like the culling of our elephant herds. Rather, after extensive consultations with local communities, scientists, and leaders of neighboring African states, we decided on a course of action that embodies three guiding principles—the need to conserve Botswana’s natural resources, the need to facilitate human-wildlife co-existence, and the need to promote scientific management of the country’s elephants and other wildlife species. ...
Last year to celebrate our anniversary we went to Botswana and had some of the best wildlife experiences. One of these was watching as this small herd of females and young waited on the side of the road while an older female checked it out before the rest followed and sauntered down the road.

There’s something both terrifying and beautiful about locking eyes with a big male lion 🦁 when they stare at you dead in the eye and hold your gaze, it’s almost impossible to look away. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #fieldwork#lion
Feliz dia da África! Faz onze anos que tenho um relacionamento profundo com este continente maravilhoso. Pude viver lá por um ano e depois acabei voltando algumas vezes. A África tem algo inexplicável. Já me disseram que estar no meio de uma savana é como estar o mais próximo possível de Deus. Deve ser isso...

I grew up in a family with a system of religious beliefs handed down to me. — Amy Tan Wonderful caption shared from @dnadeviajante ______ Tag a travel lover! ✌️ Follow @stunningchobenationalpark for more and use #stunningchobenationalpark to share your posts with us, wonderful photography is coming soon. ______
In light of the recent news that Botswana has lifted its five year ban on elephant hunting we feel it is important to shine the light on a country like Rwanda that has invested in their people as well as wildlife and seen their country thrive. President Kagame of Rwanda has turned his country around by both increasing economic opportunities, creating healthy ecosystems and tapping into wildlife eco-tourism opportunities. We hope that in the future, Botswana’s President Masisi can also lead with respect and be and example of how people and wildlife can thrive even more because of each other. ...
