Video: Wonder What It’s Like To Safari In Botswana?


As many of you knew, I was tentatively planning on heading out to Africa for a 14-day safari with a friend of the site, Dan of Grass Track Safaris, but the timing ended up not working out so I had to go it alone. Anyway, Dan got back safely from the continent and had some time to put together some footage of what I missed out on. (He’s also beaten me to the punch by at least a few weeks regarding an Africa travel video.)

This clip follows the group as they head from Victoria Falls, through Chobe, and into the Okavango Delta. As far as wildlife goes, I have to say I’m especially jealous of the fact that there’s not one but two shots of leopard (1:25 and 2:30) in the vid (I had zero on my safari).

Also, nice choice of Amadou & Mariam for the music in the background, by far my favorite blind duo musical act from Mali, and I don’t say that very often.
