After a rainy day knocked out power and caused us to stop for the day... I'm looking at pictures from earlier in the week. #Botswana has many of the well known African animals right in town. This male giraffe hung around for a while to see what we wanted. I think we disturbed his lunch. I've done this game drive twice. It's the best $15 you can spend in Gabs! If you get the chance be sure to visit Mokolodi. .

It’s hard to imagine that these colorful birds thrive in the desert but the Swallow Tailed Bee Eater (Merops Hirundineus) does exactly that. Bird watching in Southern Africa is quite amazing. The variety of birds - shapes, sizes, colors - are extraordinary. ⠀
For the 3rd time, #UNWTO supported #Botswana to prepare a #Tourism Satellite Account. Main conclusions indicate that tourism contributes 4.9% directly to the GDP. Botswana received 1,9 million visitor arrivals in 2016 which generated USD 1.53 billion and employed 18,670 people
