Caption: Lioness and cub nuzzling affectionately in late afternoon light, Chobe National Park, Botswana.
Camera Equipment: The photograph was taken with a Canon EOS Elan film camera and Canon EOS 80-200mm F2.8 lens, using slide film scanned on a Nikon Coolscan V scanner.
Location: Chobe National Park, which extends from the Linyanti and Chobe rivers in the north,
down to Moremi Game Reserve in the south, is the second largest park in Botswana.
Covering an area of 10,566 square km, Chobe has one of the greatest concentrations of game in Africa,
including an elephant population of around 120,000.
Anyone visiting the small tourist town of Kasane in northern Botwana on the Chobe River should definitely take a sunset cruise on the river as
this allows spectacular views of the large herds of elephant and other game that congregate on the
water's edge at sunset.
