After a long day of travel we have arrived in Maun. Tomorrow morning we take our chartered flights into the wild. We wrapped up week two with visits to Kalahari Conservation Society and Birdlife Botswana to familiarize students with different platforms that aid in conservation efforts on the ground. We had a guest speaker to talk about the realities of the human and elephant conflict. We spent a morning at a local youth center for vulnerable children giving a little bit of attention that I'm sure went a much longer way. We also made time for one more Setswana language class and a dance lesson with Botswana's leading dance academy. And finally a day of culture and history by walking in the foot steps of David Livingstone, seeing rock paintings from the historic bushmen and learning Tswana traditions at Bahurutshe Cultural Village. Now we are going to take a walk on the wild side in the Okavango Delta, we will share stories upon our return. Before you go, enjoy this video of Rachel receiving one memorable birthday gift!
