Dec 21st – South Africa, Botswana and Namibia all in one flight

We set out on an FAI 1000km triangle, the first leg was great and we turned a random point 380kms from Kiripotib. Our Northbound leg started well, with a TP in Botswana, but after a 100km or so, conditions weakened and with some large showers that cleared lift out of large areas our 2nd TP was not possible. We returned to Kiripotib early and, yes, we clocked up another 1000kms.

Some interesting clouds today, this one took my fancy heading West to Kiripotib

Close to the Botswana border is Aminuis, noted for it’s large pan (and probably not a lot else)
