Day 29

This is the reason my trip got extended, business meetings near the Okavango Delta, what a shame.

Quoting the trusty source that Wikipedia is,
"The Okavango is home to a prosperity of wildlife and attracts thousands of visitors a year.
The delta provides a seasonal habitat to numerous different species. Among these are African Bush Elephants, the African Buffalo, the Hippopotamus, the Lechwe, the Topi, the Blue Wildebeest, the Giraffe, the Nile crocodile, the Lion, the Cheetah, the Leopard, Brown and Spotted Hyenas, Greater Kudu, the Sable Antelope, both the Black and the White Rhinoceros, the Plains Zebras, the Warthog and the Chacma Baboon. Notably the endangered African Wild Dog is present within the Okavango Delta,[3] exhibiting one of the richest pack densities in Africa. The delta also includes over 400 species of birds, including the African Fish Eagle, the Crested Crane, the Lilac-breasted Roller, the Hammerkop, Ostrich, and the Sacred Ibis."

Today I was reading through a government document that cited Wikipedia, so it's got to be reliable, right? At least the Government of Botswana seems to think so. In that case, I'm hoping (with low expectations) that Wikipedia proves to be reliable when it comes to the Okavango Delta. But I won't be disappointed if I only see hippos, elephants, leopards, antelope, lions, and crocodile. I think that will suffice.
