Flying into the Delta

-Look Up, Look Down Challenge, Week 26

Every Thursday, I publish a post containing photo(s) taken from above or below, and invite you to join in the challenge by posting your own photos with an up or down perspective.

This week, I’ve chosen to look down in Botswana.

I’ll admit I was a little nervous at taking such a tiny plane for our flight from Maun into the Okavango Delta.  But the flight and service were top class, and flying low gives incredible views; any nervousness was soon forgotten.


As we left Maun the road below seemed to tell us to go further, and seeing the dusty track was a keen reminder that if you want to explore afar in Africa you really need to fly.

Soon the water of the Delta was beneath us.


Land ahoy!

This was our trusty steed.

Happy Exploring was had by all!

  1. I LOVE that first shot. It really gives the flavor of the country. The second one is really cool too. I’ve flown in that kind of plane and smaller… both my dad and brother were/are pilots. I know what you mean about being a little apprehensive. What awesome down shots this week!
