Every day we saw many lions. We were concerned that our Landcruiser had no doors, but the guides assured us that the lions do not see us as food as long as we kept all body parts within the vehicle.
The Landcruisers were mostly reliable, but here a flat tyre is being changed.

Not a terrorist. Just my daughter on a cold early morning safari.
A bird. Got its name jotted down somewhere.
Wally again. We were lucky to see leopards on many occasions. They are incredibly beautiful, frighteningly fast, and very elusive.
We travelled between camps in a Cessna. At every landing, the dirt airstrips were overflown to check for elephants and other wildlife. This is Camp Okavango on the Okavango Delta
What are you staring at??
A walking safari at Okavango. 2 guides, no guns. We walked within 100 meters of lions, hippos, buffalos, elephants. The guides were most worried about the buffalos. We walked for about 5 hours. An unforgettable experience.
