The Delta annual flood has arrived!

The flood has arrived!!
This is a shot of the Okavango in all its words can describe the beauty of this place at the moment! The annual flood is looking promising at this stage and the water has risen by almost 50cm in the last few days close to where the panhandle meets the alluvial fan.
It was an absolute privilege to fly low over the delta last week as we made our way from the Abu airstrip in the south west, flying low and dodging rain clouds as we made our way up north east and on into the Linyanti. Here we flew over one of the most incredible spots in the Okavango, a place called Xigera lagoon and one fantastic swim spot too!#Okavango #Botswana #Xigeralagoon

Chapmans Baobab

7th January 2016 - Chapman's has fallen.

On the 7th January, our beloved Chapman's Baobab, a National monument of Botswana and one of the 3 biggest trees in Africa, fell.  We have have no idea why it fell or if the tree is still alive.
The National Parks and Museum Authority of Botswana are sending out a team of botanists and archeologists to study the tree to find the cause and extent of the damage.
Light a candle for this beautiful tree.
