Okavango Air Rescue
In 2011 Swiss entrepreneur Christian Gross and German-born Dr Misha S Kruk founded the aeromedical rescue organization Okavango Air Rescue (O.A.R) in Botswana to service a sparsely populated country with lots of remote communities. Botswana’s Okavango Delta is one of nature’s miracles and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, being home to the ‘Big Five’ game animals making the Delta one of Africa’s most popular tourist destinations. Until the O.A.R was established the area was un-serviced by an aeromedical organisation, local people and tourists requiring medical evacuation from remote areas had to wait for aircraft to arrive from neighbouring South Africa. Today O.A.R’s service covers the area and the Southern African continent.
