6. Bye Bye Botswana, but first more lions, leopards and wild dogs

For the moment in Johannesburg, waiting for my bus to go to Cape Town and Stellenbosch to visit a friend. First more stories about Botswana: A lot of lions, but missed a lion kill (17/07) Me and Ugo woke up early to go again to Marabou pan to conduct some interviews, on the way there we saw two young male lions. At first, they were resting on the road, but one of the tourist cars came and the lions took off… we followed them for a while. At some point, it looked like they were stalking a giraffe. One … Read more

4. Wild dogs and more leopard stories

Always new stories from the bush in Africa… 15/07 we got up very early to check at Marabou pan (Savuti, Chobe national park) for animals… We saw a civet in our spotlights of the car. There was not that much going on at the pan, except for tsesebees and some warthogs. So we waited for some tourists to interview. In the afternoon we decided to check some road we had checked before… never a good idea… so after 620m we got stuck. And of course our shuffles were in the other car and at camp, so it was digging … Read more

2. Botswana: Strikes, missing flights, waiting, free hotels …

Already over 48 hours of travelling and still not there… It all started in Amsterdam and apparently, some people in Belgium and France were striking. So we finally made it to Paris with some delay… as a result of that, our flight to Johannesburg was already gone (as the flight to Brasil for some German guys on our flight, who were probably going to miss their world cup game). A free hotel room with breakfast it was. Next flight 24h later.Last night we finally got on a plane to Johannesburg, but this morning we just had 70 mins to … Read more

1. Summer 2014: It’s time for Africa!

It’s time for a new blog, a new adventure (or the other way around). I’ll try to update this blog a couple of times in the next months, although I’m not sure how much internet access I will get over there…. Botswana First of all, here is my plan:First I’ll join a research project where I applied for in December 2013. I’ve met the PhD student before when I was studying Wildlife Biology at the Grimsö research station (Sweden). Somewhere during my stay in Slovakia, we arranged a Skype meeting with crappy internet, but it worked out… I was … Read more
