Wow, mad about leopards! Posts 24 and 25 are some of the best leopard sequences I've seen!

Great stuff!

I'm especially tickled by the photos of the dogs with curled tongues. You also got a nice angle on one photo of the marabou, and the perfect arc on the elephant spraying mud.

The "question mark" with the elephant is pretty amazing- that was impeccable timing :)

The light in your cheetah and leopard sequences is just spectacular.  I'm looking for a destination for next May or June, and this is now a candidate!

Thanks for the interest in this thread - Much appreciated, guys .....

 

@amybatt - Would recommend June over May.  Especially, if the next summer season is wet with plenty of rain.  

 

Don't forget the Selinda Explorer camp option next door .......  Will also be good!!!  Not sure if they are open in May, though .... You will need to check.

Wonderful photographs! Thank you for sharing!

As you have mentioned on numerous occasions, Botswana visa is tedious process. I am leaving for a photo tour to Botswana with Theo Allofs (a German -American wildlife photographer) on 21st August, it took 1 month and 5 days to get Botswana visa.

Have you faced any transit problems at Johannesburg airport while transferring to Maun?

Thank you

Vikram

Vikram, you don't need a transit visa anymore ......... they have scrapped that silly requirement.


Make sure you check in your luggage through to Maun.  You can collect your onward JNB-Maun boarding pass on arrival at JNB after you pass through the transit side at the SAA or Air Botswana desk.
