We were up early this morning as we were going back to Pretoria. By half past seven we were at the airstrip packing our bags into the plane. We took off at eight and arrived at Maun ten minutes later. The flight to Maun was too quick and luckily there was no turbulence. Jan flew the plane quite low, which gave us a great view of the scenery below.

Today was another clear day, with the blue sky making the view below look spectacular. At times it was hard to know which side of the plane to look out of. In Maun we went to a cafe for breakfast and then we were back in the plane.

The flight from Maun to Sun City was very boring compared to flying over the delta. During this flight I slept, read and did some Sudoku. It was a quick check in and out at Sun City. Ten minutes or so after leaving Sun City International Airport, we were back in Pretoria.

Our visit to the delta was an amazing experience and we would love to return one day to explore more of the area.
