A very contented Cape buffalo (Syncerus caffer) pauses to consider our intrusion into his world. Floating down the Chobe river in a small boat allowed us to quietly glide in close to his feeding ground on Sedudu island without disturbing him too much. The island situated in the middle of the Chobe river between Namibia and Botswana offers the grazing herds prime feeding even in the dry season as well as relative protection from predatory cats who would rather not cross the croc infested waters to get at them.
