92 km to the south gate of the reserve
A safari in Botswana offers unparalleled opportunities to photograph all types of wildlife from the big five to the smallest birds. On that day in Moremi Game Reserve we started at dawn and encountered cape buffaloes, zebras, wildebeests and giraffes but the birds were quite prolific in the forested area. In prior days we had photographed the colorful lilac-breasted rollers and again they were present that morning. We were watching them on bushes and twigs along the tracks. After observing this particular bird, I sensed that it was ready to fly away, I was prepared and luckily was able to capture that frame.
