Hi all, I'm just wondering if there are many female pilots in Namibia or Botswana? Im from Australia and looking for a low time job for the next season and still need to do some research, but would like to know if there are many female pilots around?

In Maun there is 5, with one more to be hired soon.
2 have just recently left, one quit after getting fed up with being posted in Zambia, the other had to be let go after a problem with work permits.

Basically every girl that has turned up since I have been here has been hired with the exception of 1.

Ladies in the cockpit

I see more and more here in Nam as well. Actually it seems that if a girl shows up then she's got almost 100% chance to get hired.

I'm going to be busing it from Joburg to Gabs soon en-route to Maun. Only problem is the bus arrives in Gaborone in the evening then I have to wait until the next day to carry on the journey. Does anyone know of a cheap place to stay in Gaborone for the night
Thanks
