The hearty village of XouXao

Bush Ways Foundation

 Situated near the edge of the Delta and home to approximately 150 people, the village of XouXao was formed in 1932 and is the oldest village in its area.

Bush Ways Foundation partnered with Samaritans Feet to give back to this village. Bush Ways operates in the area and wanted to give back to the community, in the form of some basic supplies. Families gathered at the Kgotla where we were met by a joyfulpeopleand their Chief. With song and dance we were welcomed into the village as a sign of bringing hope. Thelaughs and good cheer was order of the day.

The Bush Ways Foundation donated clothes and shoes hampers to families as well as basic provisionsfor new-borns such as diapers, linen and clothing –  all part of the Pack For A Purpose initiative. Samaritans Feet’s involvement was the donation of approximately 200 pairs of shoes for all members of the community.

Diary of a Bush Ways safari with guide Eddie by Frank G.

 

Sunday March 26, 2017 and I am aboard an American Airlines flight to JFK where I will meet Kevin for a super trip. We will spend the night in New York City and fly non stop, scheduled that way, to Johannesburg SA. The first leg went splendidly. Kevin and I were each about 2 hours later into JFK due to fog. Connections to the Sleep Inn were straight forward and we immediately went to supper at a nearby Chinese Restaurant. I use the word restaurant rather loosely here. It was close by. It seemed rather early but when we got back to the room Kevin was ready for slumber. He had been up since 3AM Hartley Time and it was now 7 so that computes to 16 hours. The room is too small for one to sleep and the other to keep busy with the computer or TV so I also hit the sack. It is not even sundown in Tucson, where I started my day.

My brother in law Kevin joined me for the trip. Eddie was our guide.

The thrill of a mokoro ride to Ditshiping Island, Okavango Delta

Where the Okavango Delta provides a gateway on its Southern tip, is a mokoro station built to transport you to a little paradise in the wilderness. We were set to use mekoros (dugout canoes) as mode of transport to our camp site on Ditshiping Island, it wasn’t my first mokoro ride but definitely the most extensive one through the river channels, as you can imagine this was an on edge experience.
