Only 35 more days until I leave for my trip to Botswana!
The trip was originally planned for April of this year, but emergency health concerns of a travelling companion forced us to cancel that trip and rebook for November 2014. Everything is the same as the cancelled trip except for one camp... and the new camp is even better than the old one. November in Botswana can offer some dramatic skies with the coming rains... so I hope we get the stormy skies without a lot of rain!
My camera bag is packed! I got rid of the heavy Nikkor 200-400mm this summer and replaced it with a much lighter Tamron 150-600mm... unfortunately my camera bag still tips the scales at around 28lbs.... so I'm going to have to find some other things to leave at home!
I've been to Botswana once before with my friend Kay. We stayed at the Nxai Pan camp in the Kalahari Desert, so I'm looking forward to going back there and seeing what has changed. One of the highlights on this trip will be staying on a houseboat while on the Chobe River! We will venture out by smaller powerboat every day for our game drives and spend the nights floating in our camp on the water!
Can't wait to be back in Africa!
