Virtual Travel Café - A Wildlife Breakaway in Botswana - Lits

Fancy an 'armchair' Safari with 'Windows on the Wild'?

Lits will kick things off with illustrations of draft plans for an exciting
12-day wildlife breakaway in beautiful Botswana being scheduled for the end of the year. Maggi (CEO of tour operator ‘Windows on the Wild’) will then recount her recent research experiences with time later to share your thoughts and queries.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? A cup of coffee...

We are hoping to keep these brilliant virtual Cafes/Bar events going as much as we can because we know they have brought some light relief to what is going on externally.
If you can contribute the price of a cup of coffee (or more if you feel you would like to), you can do it here:

This is not compulsory at all.
Proceeds today will go to Age UK dealing with the acute virus problems right now!

Your Zoom host will admit you into the main room, where we can have a quick chat whilst we wait for late arrivals. At 6:40pm, Lits will begin his introduction, lasting 10/15 minutes. All attendees will be muted.

At the end of the introduction, there may be an opportunity to ask questions; attendees will be unmuted one-by-one to do so.

After questions, you will be allocated to virtual "tables" of between 5-6 people, where you can take it in turns to introduce yourselves to each other, then share your own anecdotes and holiday memories.

A few minutes before the end, the host will bring everyone together and mute everyone again for closing announcements, questions and/or suggestions.


Please join as promptly as possible in order to hear John's introduction. However, late comers are still welcome and will be added to a table.

HOW DO I JOIN BY COMPUTER (video and/or audio)?

1. Click this link

If you have the Zoom Application downloaded already, the Application should open and take you straight to the Virtual Cafe. If not, you'll be presented with the option to download the Zoom Application for the first time (better if you want to join quicker next time), or else skip the download and "join from your browser" (better if you're in a rush and don't want to fiddle with downloads this time).

You can also do a test-run of joining a Zoom meeting by clicking here:

2. When you join, you'll be placed in a Waiting Room and will need to wait for the host to admit you.

3. You can turn your video on/off, or mute/unmute your microphone, at the bottom left of your screen.


You can leave whenever you like by hanging up the phone, or clicking "Leave Meeting". However, please do say goodbye to the people you've been speaking to.


Joining via the computer is free. Joining via the telephone amounts to the cost of the call - the same as dialling a London local landline number. If you have minutes included in your telephone plan, this will be an included call.

If you have any problems, let us know. We are here to help.
