The Nkashi Classic Game
The Nkashi Classic Game is a simple race along the Okavango river in Botswana, avoiding obstacles like hippos, crocodiles and reeds navigating through various blocked channels and finishing in the fastest time possible. On the way you will have to collect water lilies and the word Nkashi for extra points.
There’s something truly magical about Botswana’s tourism capital Maun (mau-uunn). As a town on the Thamalakane River in northern Botswana, this place is always lit and Goals AF, (in millennial’s speak) and it’s the jumping-off point for the vast inland Okavango Delta, which becomes a lush wildlife habitat during the seasonal floods.
As we sail out of winter and pilot our way towards the final quarter of the year, outdoor events and activities are making a comeback. The opening act in Maun is the Nkashi Classic that was hosted at the Okavango River Lodge on Saturday (24th August 2019). Organized by The Wild Bird Trust Botswana in partnership with Botswana Tourism Organization (BTO), the event’s mandate is to celebrate traditional Botswana customs.
Wild Bird Trust Botswana (WBTB) in partnership with Botswana Tourism Organisation (BTO) this past Saturday hosted the Nkashi Classic – an apt event which connected science, community and conservation.
