And we're off!

Around 9:30 this morning, all the people in our program got a text from our director Batsi, telling us that we are leaving at 12:30 for the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta which also boasts a huge population of elephants, rino, hippo, lion, crocodile, and other awesome animals. We are staying in the middle of the park for 3 nights, then a group of 7 of us are splitting off and exploring the northern part of Botswana, hopefully seeing some more awesome sights.
I must pack and get ready now, but in a week I should put up some amazing photos and videos which will delight and awe.

  1. Jeremy-

    Your blog is fantastic! I am glad you are safe and excited that you have had the experience of a lifetime AND YOU STILL HAVE SO MUCH AHEAD OF YOU! Don't eat any elephants because they are in danger...unless they are evil elephants.

    In that case, chomp away, good sir.

  2. I just watched a "Animal Planet" about the Okavanga, heard an NPR mention of Botswanna, and hovered over a map of Africa at the library. All in all, I'd rather be there! What a wonderful blog - a treat to read.
