    Default Scenic flight over Delta

    Hi all,

    I am off to Botswana next week (finally!!!) and I have booked a scenic flight over Okavango Delta. What is the best time to do it? Is scheduled at 10 am. Is it too late? Perhaps a bit earlier?

    Thank you in advance!

    If you fly to early or late the sun is a problem.

    In the middle of the day it gets a bit bumpy.

    So it is a choice you must make, 10 sounds good to me.

    Enjoy.

    Send a PM to Piri on this forum. He is chief pilot for one of the Delta airlines.

    Hi Tony,

    I already got in contact with him and he recommended me Kavango Air. And that's the airline I have booked my flight with. My only concern was if my scheduled flight at 10am is good enough and following Gryskat consideration it seems to be.

    Thank you anyway!

    10am is an excellent time - the sun is high enough not to interfere with aerial photography, but there are still enough shadows around to give texture and context, and it isn't hot enough yet for it to be bumpy. It could still be very chilly, so carry a warm jacket.
