18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Traveling the Chobe River on an African Safari

A large hippo displaying its molars. As part of our African Safari experience we took a river cruise on the Chobe River, between Botswana and Zimbabwe. The wildlife was incredible. But this picture got me "promoted", to official tour group photographer (LOL). We pass a group of hippos and I was trying to get a picture of this big guy yawning, or growling?
