From the harsh beauty of the remotest reaches of the Kalahari to the lush oasis that is the Okavango Delta, this is lion country. Walk carefully through this land, for here nature’s most majestic, most lethal predator reigns supreme.
There are good years when the rains fall and vast herds of buck flock to the valleys where recently-bare ground sprouts rich grass. And then there are years when the rains do not come. When the land cracks and bleeds, and cannot keep the animals any more. But in all things, there is balance. Next year the rains will come. This is Africa’s way.
