So, just how beautiful is this? Traversing the waters of the Okavango Delta in Botswana as the sun sets, gracefully and silently gliding along  in a 'mokoro' (dug-out canoe) at the hands of an expert local poler/guide.  You can do experience this yourself if you join our very first Grown-up Travel Guide Tour to Botswana that we are in the process of putting together. Sign up to our email newsletter on the blog to be the first to get the full details!  #botswanasafari2015

After a busy two days in Johannesburg I met the rest of the group at the airport to fly into Maun in Botswana. This is the Air Botswana plane that brought us to the heart of the Okavango Delta, Maun ‪#‎botswanasafari2015‬  As you know I was travelling with Sunway Safaris and you're going to be hearing a lot about this excellent company in coming articles on the blog.

Your mokoro awaits...these are the environmentally-friendly fibreglass versions introduced using money made from tourists to save the sausage trees, which used to be the wood of choice for these dugout canoes. An essential part of any Botswana itinerary - and one of the highlights of our trip with Sunway Safaris - there is no better way to experience the Okavango Delta than aboard one of these ‪#‎botswanasafari2015‬

Waking to the dawn chorus at daybreak our first activity after coffee and breakfast was a guided walk with one of our local guides/polers.  One of the first sightings on our first day was this large group of African Skimmers - which was quite a start as these are on the near-threatened list. A beautiful bird, and one of just some 560 recorded species in Botswana...‪#‎botswanasafari2015‬

You need to keep an eye out for these guys, especially near the public campsites and entrance gates to the game reserves. This one is keeping watch for his cheeky mates while they get up to all kinds of monkey mischief ‪#‎botswanasafari2015‬

"Sundowners" are a safari tradition; enjoying a crisp Gin and Tonic or cold beer as the sun sets over the African bush is the perfect way to round off the day. For our second night camping in the Okavango Delta with Sunway Safaris this was made even more special by the fact that we journeyed to a remote island by mokoro first ‪#‎botswanasafari2015‬
