not to be confused with Mrs. BB
Sorry for not being active on the forum for a while, busy due to the tax season which will be over in 3-4 weeks yay.
This summer I had the pleasure of going to Botswana with Subrat and bunch of his photographer friends.
If you want to just do one wildlife safari in your life, Botswana is the place. We ended up doing a mobile tented safari, which allowed us to experience the jungle up close and personal, with hippos, lions, elephants, hyenas, roaming in and around the camp sites. It was a surreal experience to hear the hippos, feeding at night behind your tents and lions roaring at night close by and elephants walking thru the camp during the day. There are more than 250 species of birds in Botswana and you could essentially just do a birding trip and still will have so much fun. we were lucky to see around a 100 of them, not photograph all 100 of them

Beautiful! Been to Bots last month (mobile camping trip as well) and the birdlife is excellent. You should visit Zambia too; almost 800 species and in just South Luangwa you’ll find over 350

one of my well wishers and a friend has corrected the ID on the African Roller and the Egyptian duck. They should be Lilac Breasted Roller or LRB and Egyptian Goose. thanks friend.

Hi Mr. KD,

Such a wonderful variety of gorgeously photographed birds by you

It's impossible to pick a favorite because I love them all.

Oh and you are too cute to mention my name

thanks Bob, mobile tents are not only more affordable, but also give you the real jungle experience.
