A trip report – Chobe River, Botswana (June 1-4, 2012) Part 2

So off we go early on the Friday morning from Bloemfontein to Johannesburg and then a “direct” flight on Botswana Airways to Kasane. Well, unfortunately it was not direct (it was via Gaborone due to technical problems (???)). So we arrive a bit later than planned (around 16h00)l but luckily there was still time for a quick trip on the river. For more info and to have look what the boat(s) look like, here is the website:
