Day 2 Kasane/Chobe to Maun

Time to get to business – this morning is one of our longer drive days from Kasane to Maun. It is a journey that takes us along the edge of the Chobe National Park and then past the Magadikidiki Salt Pan. Along this route there was a high chance of seeing wildlife and we were not disappointed, with sightings of elephant, ostrich and ground hornbill as we made our way through the Botswana countryside.

WE had a quick stop off in the town of Nata to get a traditional lunch before heading west towards the phenomenon that is the Okavango Delta. We arrived in Maun around 3pm and enjoyed a big shopping expedition in anticipation of our time bush camping in the Delta. The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world and home to the Big 5. We will be heading out in the traditional Makoros (canoes made from dug-out tree trunks) to spend 2 nights camping in it’s watery wilderness. But first we spent the night on the outskirts of the delta enjoying the last of the “civilized” world for a few days.
