Sedia Riverside Hotel, Maun - Feeling Pink

The Pink Caravan has made a December visit to Sedia Riverside Hotel with 2 buses of Swedish travellers. They are a group of adventurers and holiday makers. First they plan their activities - game flights and trips into the Okavango Delta. Then they make merry.

With all the spirit of Christmas merrymakers they carry-on into the night - swimming, shooters, playing pool, singing and talking. There are at least 50 people in the group and everyone seems involved in the festivities. We wish them well on the remainder of their 5 country tour and hope they all have a Happy New Year!

Sedia - Sanctuary In A Storm

The above photo was taken on December 5, 2007 outside of Sedia Riverside Hotel. Two hours later we had 47mm of rain - cracking thunder and at times big gusts of wind. All of this are signs that the rainy season has started. To date over 150mm of rain has fallen at Sedia.

When visiting Maun, particularily in the rainy season, turn at the Sedia sign and find sanctuary from the storm. You will find it dry, warm and friendly inside.
