Hi All

Just to let you know that there will be a Boogie held in Botswana from the 16th to 19th July 2016 (The Makgadikgadi Epic). The Boogie is in its 3rd year and is held over the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and sponsored by the Botswana Tourism Department. It is a fantastic 4 days with jumps from a PAC750, Atlas Angel, Helicopters and a CASA or C130 being on the cards to still be confirmed. The Botswana Defence Force provide the aircraft for the Boogie.

Boogie registration costs still to be confirmed 2015 costs were P400 (£35) registration fee which included a goodie bag and T-Shirt. Jump slots were P1500 +-(£100) for 10 slots from various aircraft including the CASA . As soon as I get the costs for this years event I will post should be very similar though.

For those who don't know the Makgadikgadi salt pans were on Top Gear they are the worlds largest salt pan. Botswana has been voted as the Best Country to visit in 2016 in the world by Trip Advisor and a number of other publications. 

Botswana is also home to the Okavango Delta and in my opinion the best wildlife parks in the world. The country is incredibly safe to travel in and relatively cheap with the Pula being 15-16 to the £. 

It would be great to see some UK or other international skydivers attend and then visit the best wildlife viewing areas.

Please feel free to ask any questions and I will try and answer
