Breaking News

Dear BLB member,

Next walk update

Unfortunately we have had to cancel Sunday’s walk as restrictions are now more stringent than last time.  That is sad but it is for our own good.  Not more than two may meet at any place or time.

AGM Update

2021 calendar

Our theme remains “Garden birds”.  We still need contributions from member photographers, please!

Special offers

These are tough times for members in the tourist industry and we should try to support them if we can.  Added to that the Chobe/Zambezi system is in flood and the Boro River, which was almost dry a few months ago, is now flowing very strongly past Maun towards Seronga.  Appended above are some of the specials being offered at present.  You’ll not have another opportunity in your life time like this.  Please use it and add to your bird lists. Night Okavango Walking Safari and Some Kasane Specials.

Added to the above Khwai Villa have an excellent offer of two cottages for residents during this time.  Contact them at Airb&B, Khwai Villa.

Upcoming Events

  • Saturday, November 7, 2020 (All day) to Saturday, November 28, 2020 (All day)

    Unfortunately we had to abort our AGM because of Covid-19.  We are now planning on having it in November and having a smart sit-down dinner at the same time.  We are organising a smart speaker to talk on a smart birding topic that evening after the AGM formalities have been concluded.  Please keep every Saturday in November free for this function when we can socialise properly.
