Today was our day to travel back home. Not much happened in the morning but having breakfast and then making one last journey in Bibi’s Landcruiser to Maun airport.
We bad fond farewells for all Bibi’s guidance and help before joining the check-in queue for the feeder flight back to Johannesburg. Our bags were checked all the way through so there was nothing to do in Jo’burg airport but enjoy the hospitality in the Virgin lounge for three hours or so.
Botswana had been great. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a friendly, smiling race of people. Many of them don’t have much and their Covid trials have been considerable, relying so heavily on tourism, but they appeared contented and happy.
Here are the stopping points on our journey, numbered in order.
The return flights went smoothly and we arrived at Heathrow about 30 minutes early at 04:30. Happily, our bags also arrived this time and there was no rush to leave the long term car park, the pre-booking for which worked as well (unlike the last attempt at Luton).
We got home with great memories and a bunch of photographs to sort through. 🙂
