Nxai Pan, Botswana
Having spent the previous day in Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, we spent the next in the national park to the immediate north – Nxai Pans. My experience, though – and perhaps we were simply lucky the day before – was that there was less to see here and much more driving of sandy tracks.
With that said, we had a good hour or two session with a Lion and Liones; with remarkable Simba and Nala likeness. The beauty here was that there were no other folks around as we spent a good while watching these two.
Mildly funny story though. Richard, my Safari buddy, decided it would be funny to pull up within a few metres of the “King of the Jungle” and proceeded to tell me that in the time I roll up my window the male could easily attack. It made for a moment of furious window winding – I still don’t know if it was true.
Enjoy a few photos from the adventure below:
