So I set off early this morning into the Delta. With no tourism the few people there are the anti-poaching division of the Botswana Defence Force, and poachers, and 2 friends 125K NW of me today.
They have my sat phone and I got an “all well” from them this morning at 05:48:28 UTC. They’re on a once-in-lifetime epic adventure I bailed on until next year, as I sit at a desk and work with a ruler and sharp pencils on a personal project I have 2 weeks to complete. They’re here, about as exotic location as anywhere on earth
So, getting their SMS, I had to go out for the day, even without my phone.
I crossed paths with wildebeest and a small trailing herd of buffalo, running together, which I’ve never seen before
And even raced an ostrich for a while. Out of focus, don’t bother clicking
So I guess the fish collecting season has started, unless they lock us down again.
