BOTSWANA, DAY 3
The morning drives are generally quite quiet and most of the action tends to happen at first light but thanks to the guide we seen the most insanely camouflaged Owl. Even with binoculars I had to be guided to find it! Botswana is not only an absolute treat but an education!!
THERE IS NOTHING QUITE LIKE AN AFRICAN SUNSET
As our lodge is within the Okavango Delta we were able to take a boat trip instead of our afternoon drive. This gave us an opportunity to see a different variety of wildlife including birds, crocs and elephants are mingling in the waterways.
- Botswana was given independence from Britain in 1966.
- It is approximately the size of France, but has 2 million compared to France’s 66.9 million.
- The border between Botswana and Zambia is just 150 meters, making it the shortest border in the world.
Although we didn’t get to see the ‘big exciting animals’ it offers a completely different environment to what the drives offer. A special mention has to go to the African sunsets, there is no sunset in the world like an African one!
After per usual we were able to enjoy our Gin and Tonic in the middle of the Okavango Delta during sunset – I suppose this is what dreams are actually made of!
Although we were brought right back down to earth when we were told there was a Hyena roaming around the camp that night
