We set out from Port Alfred on 23 th April 2008. After a few days in Jhb, a night in Maun, 6 nights in Okuti Lodge, we came back to Jhb for another night. We returned to Port Alfred on 5 May. The 7 strong Okuti Safari team was made up of: * Floss and John Howden (Floss is Les’s sister.) * Genny Wragge and her son Frank and sister, Karen (Genny and Floss went to school together) * Les and Billy NB We all contributed to the photos (either taking or posing)
Bad photo of our Air Botswana plane that was 3 hours late. Reason? Two planes were needed to complete their flight commitments around the country and only one was available – the other had technical problems. So we started out with misgivings . . . !
The camp had no external fence. In a game reserve it would be reasonable to assume that animals would visit the camp – they did! We were told that when returning to our tents after dark we should ask a game guard to accompany us – just in case. It was difficult to take this advice seriously, but after the first night we realized that it was entirely appropriate.
