This Botswana post covers another flight, this one just a local flight over the Chobe River and floodplains.
After she felt a little poorly on the flight to the Okavango Delta, it may come as a bit of a surprise to hear that I managed to get Dee into an aircraft again on the following day. This was non negotiable really, as we had already effectively paid for this ‘included’ sightseeing flight. Dee’s potential motion sickness problem was overcome by everyone agreeing that Dee could sit ‘up front’ with the pilot. The flight took place after this morning’s river safari and this post includes a few more aerial shots of the Chobe River and surrounding area.
The runway looks quite long from this angle.
Kasane airport from the air.
A small settlement next to the river.
The winding river and its floodplains.
A Namibian cattle herd in the Caprivi Strip.
More Namibian cattle.
A small elephant herd or family.
We saw this boat yesterday as well. Where is everyone? It seems deserted.
Another elephant herd.
This looks like another small lodge.
Another family of elephants.
Dee’s happy on this flight.
Later in the day we will be off on another 4×4 game drive, so there will be a few pictures from that soon. Please come and have a look.
