Day 8: Cultural Night in Maun
Last night the group stayed in Maun for a brief break from camping, enjoying the luxuries of a hotel bed. Thanks to Bonti and her team we were able to enjoy a visit to her property where we treated to a very lively talk about life in Botswana, enjoyed some local cuisine and were able to do some souvenir shopping to support the local economy. To top the night off we all got to try our hand at dancing before watching the experts show us how it is done. All this while taking in a beautiful sunset on the edge of the Thamalakane River. This morning we were lucky to see 4 elusive Sitatunga on the river banks, as well as hippos, on our boat trip along the Okavango Delta , ending it off with a picnic on its banks. So far we have been lucky to see Small Spotted Genets and Hyenas up close around camp, as well as many elephants and giraffes on our travels. Next up the group travels to Moremi Game Reserve.
