Billyballo:
how many pilot there??
He asked the same question on the 5th Dec and got an answer. Obviously doesn't even read answers to his own posts. He will stand out like a sore thumb here in 'jennuary' - can't wait

Were comments from pilots ever published alongside supposed words of praise from clients in the publicity brochures the inescapable conclusion would be that there could shortly thereafter be no more passengers to comment, all tourists having run for the hills. The evidence grows greater daily to support the contention that the putative pilot of today is nothing of the sort and is as competent to be a button pusher in an aircraft as a security guard is to be sufficiently innovative and intelligent to be a bank robber.

No man...you are clearly very mistaken! Your lack of reading skills and just general lack of research (and yes your questions were answered less than a page back) is what people were eluding to. You are displaying a child-like attitude and I look forward to hearing if you actually find a job anywhere on this CONTINENT not country! (wahahahahahahaha) How about you dont waste your time in Maun or anywhere else in Africa for that matter and find a job on your own continent?!?

Maun is better without you anyway...definately a superb talent and awe inspiring personality lost for the good people of Maun here. Sorry guys.

Maybe people just dont have the energy to respond to your pathetic posts...or maybe they do indeed have jobs!!!

As this is meant to be the essential guide and not a mud slinging competition, let me add some advice. Mahube express as advertised on the Maun self drive 4x4 link no longer operates a bus service from Joburg to Maun. The way to get there by bus is to catch Intercape from Joburg to Gabs, spend the night in Gabs in a B&B and then be at the bus station at 05:30 the following morning to catch the bus to Maun. Its slow and noisy but its CHEAP

@ Pinante, a 30 second search of the intercape website showed up where to go.

Depart From JOHANNESBURG - Intercape Office, Park City Transit Centre, Johannesburg Station
To GABORONE - Intercape Office, Kudu Shell Service Station, Queens Road

Hell I even have GPS co-ordinates for you. GPS: 26.197072S 28.041079E

Intercape Bus Stop Information: JOHANNESBURG

If you get lost even when navigating between ground positions then here is some useful information to help you in the event of a walk out following a forced lob in the bush.

Better pack a compass in the flight bag as well as paper, water and wet wipes.

Awesome
By the way, would like to remind everyone to take hairspray with him/her (best would be a hairspray dispenser built into a Leatherman...)

Thank you for that info. It was a relatively new service, surprised it didn't work out.

Mahube Express (JHB-Maun) is out of service. They are trying to change its loading bay from Fleet Africa to Park station, and currently are waiting on a response from Park station management.

@ lilflyboy262...2

Of course I found the "Intercape" site, but I thought that it was only a bus stop on the road. I didn't realise that the back buildings in the picture were actualy the station... I'm sorry for my misunderstanding!

I know that many people that use this forum ask questions without making any effort to look for the answers by themselves, but you can not forget that we all come from diferent places, with diferent experiences, and things that are common to you, can be uncommon to me and vice-versa.

As for the GPS coordenates... well... thank you very much but I don't have a GPS. I'm betting everything on this small oportunity so the gadgets must wait.

If I get a job in Maun I'll be for ever grateful for this forum (your forum) and for all your investment in it, but please don't lose the perspective...

I was looking tickets, and from budapest I found prices about 400-500 euros one way and about 620 return. Think about it

Hoping to come down to Botswana in mid February, Will there be jobs still going at that time of the year or am I too late for this year?
