Day 70: Gweta to Maun (215 km) A quick coffee first thing before hitting the road to Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. We arrived at our accommodation at the Old Bridge Backpackers just before 2.30 and were shown to our river front safari tent. Having been highly recommended to do a scenic flight over the Delta & Moremi National Park by several people we enquired at reception who told us that if we were quick we could do one at 3.30. We bolted to the airport, paid the fee ($105 USD/person) and pretty much headed straight to the runway with the other 3 passengers. Annoyingly Lydia’s window was set quite far back (...not ideal on a scenic flight) so she negotiated her way to the front seat, next to the pilot! The views of the Delta from the air were truly breathtaking and the pilot swooped down several times to give us a good view of all the animals in the National Park - a very different perspective of seeing them. Sightings included; giraffe, hippos (in and out of the water), zebra, impala, springbok, buffalo, elephant, white rhino and a humongous crocodile. The hour in the air flew by, literally, and before we knew it we were back at the Backpackers reminiscing with some other travellers over a St Louis. #africa #botswana #gweta #maun #oldbridgebackpackers #okovangodelta #moreminationalpark #scenicflight #flyingsafari #safarigeeks #mackair #alltheanimals #stlouisbeer #xtrailadventure #southernafricain90days #flyingsafari #southernafricain90days #oldbridgebackpackers #xtrailadventure #okovangodelta #africa #safarigeeks #moreminationalpark #gweta #maun #alltheanimals #scenicflight #stlouisbeer #mackair #botswana

The topography in Botswana was something that I’ve never seen before. Lush green oasis’s with pristine white sand banks leftover from the flooding water. I took this photo as we were flying from one camp to the next in a small propeller bush plane north east of the Okavango River Delta. After I took the photo I realized there was a heard of 50+ wild elephants making there way from the watering whole to cross the river 🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘
