BOTSWANA OKAVANGO DELTA DECATHLON
BY CHRIS FORTESCUE
In November Chris went on a pre travel trade show (Botswana Travel and Tourism Expo) whistle stop tour with Desert & Delta Safaris to Botswana.
On arriving into 34 degree Maun Airport at approx 13h00 after an 11 hour flight from Heathrow and further 2 hour flight from Johannesburg the trip started with a dash across the road for a much needed cold beer (St Louis) at Capello’s and where the rest of our group of 6 tour operators from different parts of the World congregated.
Once gathered we did not know the rest of the day would in fact be a Botswana decathlon of events:
This started with boarding a light aircraft charter flight with safari Air into the heart of the Okavango Delta. On arrival at Camp Okavango Airstrip it was off for a Site inspection of the Camp before heading to the jetty where a boat was waiting for us for a safari in the Okavango Delta. Our luggage went one way to our accommodation for that night hopefully and we went the other.
