Beautiful and easily overlooked little Okavango special. Rosy throated longclaws have a tendency to sit with their backs to you, but when they turn around, they have strikingly beautiful plumage. Listen for that see-sawing call and perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to see one. #okavangobirding #rosythroatedlongclaw #littlethings #birdingbotswana.

Leaping lechwe! They can move through their swampy environment unbelievably quickly and with spectacular jumps when they feel threatened. Definitely not an easy prey species. #leapinglechwe #okavango #aquaticliving #redlechwe.

A fat belly full of food is not the most comfortable on an incredibly hot summer's day in Botswana. Digesting protein is a warm process, but spotted hyenas, like all carnivores, will not pass up on the chance to gorge themselves. Although they are excellent hunters and well known for scavenging, they can never be sure of the next meal. A bit of respite can be gained from dozing off in a pool of cool water. There won't be any need to move from this muddy wallow unless other predators turn up. #spottedhyena #wallow #Okavango.

Congregated in the deepest water, in the middle of two Okavango channels, this group of hippos will spend the entire day here where they stay cool and uninterrupted by other animals. When the sun sets they’ll move out to graze, their enormous bulks somehow fueled by grass. #okavango #hippos #keystonespecies #aerial #megaherbivores.

Widely distributed across most of the world from the Himalayas to Easter Island, Pantala dragonflies will have been seen by most of us - even if we don’t recognize them specifically. Here, in the Okavango they’re a favorite food of Amur Falcons and bee eaters but in their larval stage, they are the predators, even catching tadpoles. #pantaladragonfly #okavangoInsects #dragonfly #discoverthelesserknown.

Happy International Women’s Day to all those incredible women who dream big and act courageously against all odds. The prize may not always be glamorous or revered and it may not always be won but there are lessons to be learned either way. Go for it. #internationalwomensday.

Aren’t pelicans just the most wonderful collection of shapes? The perfect mix of elegance and impossibility. You couldn’t dream one up. #wonderfulworld #perfectpelicans.

Terry Pratchet wrote, "In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this." This cub seems to reinforce these words as it reclines on a natural throne. There’s a reason a group of lions is called a ‘pride’ but their behaviour depends very much on where they live and how much contact they have with humans. Here, on a protected concession in the Okavango, they know that they are at the top of the food chain and have little to worry about, barring other lions and packs of hyaenas. They will sleep deeply, out in the open, fully relaxed. If you juxtapose this with lions from areas of high poaching, hunting or wildlife conflict, the difference is extreme and very noticeable – usually by their absence. Those that remain will embrace the darkness and slink like leopards through undergrowth. Sleep will be in hidden copses and they will disappear at the sight or sound of people. Lions may be apex predators but they know how devastating the impact of people can be. With only 20 000 lions left today, a 40% reduction in their numbers in only 3 generations, how many lions are left to sleep soundly anymore? #ThisIsMyTrophy #BigCatsInitiative #CauseAnUproar ...

She is my mother, my teacher and my inspiration and without her there would be no me.” #worldwildlifeday #thisismytrophy #thejoyofelephants.

What a little fighter. #Repost @dereckjoubert ・・・
It’s been an incredible and truly surprising story to follow. A tiny lion cub that somehow ended up with the wrong pride – and won protection and comfort within this highly dangerous situation. She continues to hold her own and we continue to observe with amazement.

Silhouetted against early morning mists, a herd of elephants crosses Duba’s vast and productive plains. These animals are vital in the ecosystem- and especially useful on an island such as Duba Plains where they keep channels open in the aquatic vegetation and create new openings to new food sources. #thisismytrophy #botswanadawn #thejoyofelephants.

There’s nothing like the predatory instinct to sneak up on someone. Luckily for the other cub, the predatory ability to hone in on the slightest movement may have prevented being ambushed! #littlebigcats #predatorplay #okavangolions.
