Mokoro trip

October 31st – Day Thirty Seven Another of the group had a birthday, Helen being 33 today. We had a morning game walk, much like the previous evenings except we saw more Elephant and nearly walked all the way back to the bus stop. We got to get quite close to a couple of little […]

Bush Camp in the Okavango Delta

October 30th – Day Thirty Six Sunrise over the reeds at Makwena Guess what? It was an early start with us all ready by 7am to load everything onto the boats for a trip through the delta to the ‘bus stop’ where we would be meeting our Mokoro polers. Now getting very efficient a line […]

Okavango Delta

October 29th – Day Thirty Five We didn’t have to rise quite so early today as we weren’t due in Maun until 9am for our morning flight over the Okavango Delta. Leaving after 8am was a novelty, it was nice not to be rushing around for once. The drive into Maun was sedate and we […]

Driving to Maun

October 28th – Day Thirty Four As is usual we had an early start for our journey away from the National Park towards the city of Maun. One thing we noticed today was the general good repair of the roads in Botswana, the ride being comparatively smooth compared to the roads we had travelled in […]

Chobe again

October 27th – Day Thirty Three The early start saw us back at reception and being picked up for another game drive in the National Park. We had the same driver again and were soon off down the road heading for the park gate. Unfortunately this drive wasn’t a patch on the night before with […]

Just quickly

We’ve left Zambia and are now in Botswana staying in a campsite on the side of the Chobe river. Keryn went for a flight in a Tiger Moth the other day, a bunch of people (not us) from the truck went white water rafting and we managed to leave Zambia with no problems. We’ve been […]


October 26th – Day Thirty Two To facilitate our early arrival at the Chobe National Park in Botswana and more importantly an early berth on the ferry from Zambia we left very early this morning. There were more than a few people talking in overly loud voices or even singing at we took down our […]

Tiger Moth

October 25th – Day Thirty One Much like the previous day we had a lot of relaxation today, the poolside playing a large part. A number of people went into town in the morning but we stayed behind as Keryn had a bit of a dodgy belly and she needed to rest to make sure […]

White Water Rafting

October 24th – Day Thirty Truth be told there isn’t a lot to write about today. Most of our day was spent resting by the pool. The only worthwhile event that took place was the white water rafting undertaken by Rachel, Dave, Will and Maria. When they got back in the evening we watched a […]

Walking with Lions

October 23rd – Day Twenty Five Getting up at 4.30am is never easy but we managed it again and were at the truck shortly after 5am sorting out our gear for the day. Most people were heading over to Zimbabwe and the majority of those going were heading out to the Lion Encounter. A quick […]


October 22nd – Day Twenty Four Today is the free day on our trip, the day when Jacques, Joe and Charles clean out the truck and make ready for part two, as well as making sure we have enough stuff for the five new people joining us the following day. Because they are busy we […]
