Morning Safari

The sun rises over the Delta as we depart Jacana Bush Camp for our early morning safari. Our stomachs are full from another delightful breakfast and we are rugged up in ponchos so as to stop the cool morning air from penetrating our clothing. Moputi, our guide, opens up the Mercury powered tinny and we accelerate down the shallow channel.

Taking Flight

During the day the channels are used by the boats at the camp. By night these channels become aquatic pathways for elephants, hippo, fish, crocodiles and other Delta Dwellers.
Birds, large and small, take flight from the reeds lining the channel we are negotiating. The birdlife in this part of the Okavango is amazing and, whilst we are not “birders“, it is hard not to be impressed by the sheer beauty of a huge bird taking flight and being silhouetted by the sun rising in the African sky.
What a day this is going to be.
