#1236 Botswana 19/08/20

My first cover from Botswana was sent by Ulf, thank you very much! It is a FDC, which was cancelled again in Poso House on August 20. The cover was delivered by GLS and arrived on September 10, 2019.

The cover and stamps commemorate the Nxai Pan. They depict a baobab tree, a cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus), a springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis), a gemsbok (Oryx gazella), a lanner falcon (Falco biarmicus), and two bat-eared foxes (Otocyon megalotis).

#1183 Chad 18/05/08

Here is another very nice cover from Chad, thank you Zhang for sending this one! It was posted in N’Djamena on May 8 and arrived on May 29, 2018.

The stamps depict some lions (Panthera leo), a white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum), a springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis), and the sailing ship Prince Royal.

Zhang included a postcard too, which depicts the Place de la Nation in N’Djamena.
