The sun came and went and after 3-3.5 hours we ended up back at the ranch. By the end I did manage to get a few nudges of run out of my horse so wasn't told bad, but we both expected to see more animals out there.

Our group made our way back to the jeep after that and we then had a bit of ...

I've always wanted to visit the Okavango Delta in Botswana and this place is supposedly comparable but I really hope not.
Along those muddy roads are countless farms with cows, sheep, and goats which are of course bordered by wire fences. If the people here have managed to find peace between farming and wildlife then ...
