Camera: Canon EOS 400D; Lens: Canon EF 80-200mm f/2.8L zoom; Focal Length: 200mm; Shutter speed: 1/800; Aperture: f/5.6; ISO: 400.

Location: Mashatu Game Reserve, in the remote east of Botswana, is not as well-known as that country's Chobe National Park and Okavango Delta, but nevertheless offers compelling game viewing for those visiting the area on safari.

Big herds of elephant can usually be sighted, plus predators like lion, leopard, and cheetah that follow herds of impala, wildebeest and eland that migrate through.
