Crocodile camp bar and restaurant: Local food
One thing I'd like to tell traveller who never visit Africa yet but plan to go there one day is...1. Food choices are limitted if you travel in normal or middle class type ,not high end type. 2. You have to prepare yourself to wait long to "very long" time before you get your food,so I suggest people who always have a little emotion or bad temper if hungry ,to prepare to order food far in advance BEFORE you feel hungry. It's not anybody's fault.It's us ..to adapt ourselves a little bit to understand "the different " of each other.(this words can adapt to use in any other kind of living as well..." understand each other" ) We ahve to keep in mind that this is Africa ,and they are much poorer than many other parts of the world.So....give them chance..give them time.. no need to compare them to the service that we get from Hilton or Sheraton or some thing,it's diferent.If we just understand this ,we will not be upset to them and we will be all happy.And most of all ,Botswana peple are so friendly,please be friendly to them as well.
We had ordered our dinner since we finished our afternoon coffee.They don't have menu card at the moment,so we consuled with them .I told them that I can have anything like fish or chicken and my mate need some beef or chicken.They disappeared for a while and we agreed with 2 fried chickens .I prefer it with rice and the other with french fries.The time to eat is set at 7 pm. and when we came back at the restaurant the food already were ready to be served.That 's simple and easy.We enjoyed the night a bit with some soft drinks and beers before go back to our home sweet home or actually "tent sweet tent"
The Maun chicken shop: KFC......Botswana style!!!
Positioned on prime real estate in the main street of Maun, you will come across the Maun chicken shop. The sign advertises "take away" or "rest" as the two options for purchasing their product. I strongly advise to only look at the produce because judging by the swarm of flies and insects that were creating the breeze that enabled the smell to smack you over the head like a hammer, the sign should have read "take away" or "rest in peace!"

Elephant pooh restaurant: Don't make promises you can't keep!
Upon our departure from Maun campsite into the delta, Adam, our truck driver advised that he had to stay behind to get a few tents repaired and to service "Mutley" the truck. He also advised that he would join us the next day.
Elise "witchy poo", our tour guide and Adams partner, was heard to utter, "If you turn up in the delta I will eat Elephant pooh!"
Well, guess what? He did turn up and Elise was served the correct dish right on time!
Thanks Adam...never let a chance go by!
Favorite Dish: The elephant pooh sandwich with tomato sauce, garnished with orange and served with a chilled glass of your favorite white wine..
