Heaven is the Okavango Delta

Maun, Botswana

Another week another country... Botswana.

Botswana is bloody expensive and the most modern place we've been yet. On the upside it has the Okavango Delta which should just be renamed Heaven. Its probably the prettiest place I've ever been.

We just returned from a 2 night Wilderness canoe safari. Our guides took us out in canoes deep into the delta where we bush camped on little islands.

General Schedule for the day in Heaven:

-5am every morning to go bush walking for 4 hours
-11am swam in the delta and practiced our punting skills
-napped in the shade to escape the midday (40 degree sun)
-4pm sunset canoeing
-6pm cooking on the bonfire
-8pm teaching the Okey Cokey to the locals with a G&T
-10pm bedtime istening to hippos and hyenas in the background
