  3. Re: Are there any walking paths (and trail maps?) in and around Maun?

    I don't think there are any established touristic path ways as every track will lead to some remote village or boma, cattle posts spreading right into the delta area. This means long way off on foot...

    December - January, I think the migration as such is over then.

    Re: I do not support load shedding at home

    I think the key to solar installations is managing the loads.

    You can start with a moderate installation and back-up from Eskom and learn when and how to reduce the loads.
