Um pouco da nossa última aventura em Botswana na Africa.
Quando estamos conectados com a Natureza isso nos faz refletir sobre a forma como estamos vivemos e como estamos cuidando do nosso planeta.
Foram 15 dias totalmente desconectados do mundo digital e conectados com Natureza vivendo em um mundo "normal". Essa experiência nos lembrou que sem a Natureza não há vida.
São momentos como esses que ficam pra sempre gravados na memória, aventuras que só a Natureza pode nos proporcionar.
Foi uma das maiores experiências da minha vida que me fez enxergar o mundo de outra forma.
Agradeço a Deus por nos dar essa oportunidade e mesmo com a nossa ignorância ele ainda nos permite desfrutar das suas maravilhas.
Natureza...Cuidar, Preservar Conservar e Apreciar.
Nós somos o problema mas também somos a solução.
We would like to share a little from our latest Trip to Botswana in Africa.
When we are connected with Nature it make us reflect on how we have been living and how we have been taking care of our planet.
We spent 15 days totally disconnected from the digital world and completely connected with Nature, living in a ordinary world. This experience reminded us that without nature there is no life.
Moments like these will stay forever in our minds, adventures that only Nature can provide us. It was
one of the biggest experiences of my life and it gave me the opportunity to see the world in a different way.
We thank God for this opportunity because even with our ignorance you still allow us to enjoy your wonders.
Nature - we should care, preserve, conserve and enjoy it.
We are the problem but we are also the solution.
As the world continues to grapple with the challenges of a pandemic, we're reminded of the importance of pausing to appreciate the splendour of the natural world. In these trying times, with many people across the globe confined to their homes, we can take some solace in the knowledge that the natural world and all of its wild inhabitants will continue to move in sync with ancient cyclical rhythms. We can draw inspiration from the resilience of nature and find comfort in its undying beauty. #Okavango#OkavangoDelta#sunrise#naturephotography#Botswana#photooftheday
What an amazing day.
I chilled out at the pool with my binoculars, bird guide and reading book.
I heard this noise and looked up seeing these two Elephant calves chasing the Impala rams around. Unfortunately I only managed to get the last part on video, but was so cute to see.
This place is incredible. I saw about 15 different species of birds in 30 minutes.
BOTSWANA BLOG UPDATE by Adam Blachly (@Adamblach) of Middlebury College;
"...A couple of days ago, on an early morning game drive, our instructor spotted tracks in the sand along the main road. We stopped the cars and got out. A string of 4-toed prints meandered along the road’s edge. They were large, and while some debris and grass-seed had collected in the nearby zebra prints, these prints were clean; they were fresh. They were also the biggest cat prints I had ever seen. They had to be lion. We got back in our cars, and after driving a couple hundred meters, we realized this was not a lone individual, it was a pride. Further along, we came to a section of road that looked disheveled; dark, kicked-up dirt carpeted the sand. Looking more closely, we realized we were following a giant herd of buffalo. Their tracks weaved in and out of the surrounding scrub, and so did the lion, overlaid on top, fresh this morning. We continued the hunt for nearly half an hour, eventually losing their trail in a dense mopane woodland. We stopped where the tracks disappeared into the vegetation, imagining the lions somewhere just out of sight, perhaps feasting on a fresh carcass. What we could’ve seen as a sandy tract in the savanna, we instead saw as a great stalk – a lesson in reading the landscape..."

Poaching continues at an alarming rate in the Okavango Delta, with poachers seemingly unperturbed by the dramatic changes taking place around the world. More than ever we need to keep our men and women out there in the field – carrying out critical land and air surveillance missions. And in order to do this, we need your help! Please consider supporting us during this difficult time. To make a donation visit our website or contact us on email@example.com . .
There's always one... These three curious hyenas approached a game vehicle at Kwando Lebala in Okavango Delta region of Botswana, to investigate it further. You can see them eagerly sniff the vehicle and tyre, and of course there's always that one friend who has to taste it too! 😅

2019 was a tough year for the Okavango Delta. The low rainfail in Angola meant that the flooding only hit the Delta in September. 2020 on the otherhand has welcomed high rainfall and the floods are already on their way.
These Red Lechwe are just a few of the local animals who have rejoiced by the early waters. #okavangodelta#redlechwe#wildlifephotography#africa#luxurysafari

Meet Action – Nxabega's newest Tracker.
A man with a smile as wide as his skill set. Action clocked out of a corporate career in an accountancy firm to follow his passion of the bush. With a never say no attitude and a fierce drive, he was up on the seat in no time!
Water Monitors are predators, hunting on and under the ground, in trees and mainly in the water. Their twin ends of the tongue collect odour particles from the air and then deliver them to receptors, which detect differences in strength on each tongue tip and can gauge the direction of the scent, allowing the monitor to follow scent trails.
Not being able to travel should be the least of our worries, these moments will certainly come back. I hope none of you is existentially threatened right now. I'm sure in India, Africa and Latin America many people are.
Some memories from Botswana:
(1) Sunset above flooded Cuando river, border between Botswana and Namibia, (2) some military guys helping us out of a creek in the Okavango Delta, (3) happy moments in the camp w/@tgi_lukas, (4) monkeys crossing close to the road, (5) a group of wild dogs resting in the shade of a tree.
Standing together in solidarity six feet apart. We @africanaerialsafaris wish to express our good wishes to all our third-party provider's staff and family. Also to our clients across the globe during these trying times. THE CALL OF AFRICA BY C. EMILY DIBB
When you have acquired a taste for the dust, and the scent of our first rain, You’re hooked for life on Africa, and you’ll not be right again. Until you can watch the setting moon and hear the jackals bark, And know they are around you waiting in the dark.
When you long to see the elephants or hear the coucal’s song, When the moonrise sets your blood on fire, then you’ve been away too long. It is time to cut the traces loose, and let your heart go free, Beyond that far horizon where your spirit yearns to be.
Africa is waiting – come! Since you have touched the open sky And learned to love the rustling grass and the wild fish eagle’s cry. You’ll always hear the hunger for the bush; for the lion’s rasping roar, To camp at last beneath the stars and to be at peace once more.
