Camp--Okavango-Botswana

After four nights at Camp Moremi our next stop was Camp Okavango, with another set of great guides and staff

At this camp there are no Landcruisers. If you walk, it’s with  an unarmed guide, since no guns are allowed

The mokoro rides are with a guide that moves you through the reeds with a large pole

They had powerboats just like at Camp Moremi, and took us to the islands in the area for our walking tour

Our rooms were large, luxurious, comfortable, and with a huge bathroom and shower. The shower was so large we could have had a party in it!

There was Internet access, but no WiFi. We told them never to get WiFi, this way people could interact instead of putting their noses in a phone.

Another camp with outstanding cuisine

How our meals were introduced each night. This night we were having broccoli as our vegetable, with an mmmm of approval from the rest of the cooks and staff

After our meal announcement it was time for a song and a lap before eating

Speaking of song and dance, even when they surprised us with brunch in the bush there was singing and dancing

Too bad we could not stay there forever, and after 3 nights Zak waved good bye to us as we flew to Cape Town for our Great White Shark cage dive
