We continue dreaming of travel until the day we can do so again.

Botswana is a must for your future travel bucket list if…

You’d like to spend a night out in the wilds of the Okavango
You want to take a fish eagle cruise along the Chobe river
You enjoy spotting magnificent birdlife
You’d like to learn to pole a mokoro
You’ve always wanted to walk out in the African bushveld in an open game area

To get that feeling of Africa we suggest you add the following 5 songs to your playlist before you continue reading;

Shakira – Waka Waka {Watch Acacia passengers dance video here}

Toto – Africa

The Tokens – The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Let’s continue to explore Botswana, virtually.

If I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa.”John Hemingway 


The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world covering an area of 1.6m hectares as well as being a world heritage site. The best way to explore the ‘Delta’ is on foot and by mokoro (dug out canoe) where polers guide you through the labyrinth of channels, standing like gondoliers at the rear of the boat. The Okavango is very good for birders as huge numbers of waterfowl and raptors reside there, but you also find elephant, zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, lion and kudu.


In the northern corner of Botswana close to the borders of Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe is Chobe National Park. The park is 11,000 sq kilometres in size and home to a 25,000 strong elephant population along with antelope, buffalo, crocodile, lion, hippo and various birds including the African fish eagle. With the Chobe River running through the heart of the park it’s a great place to spot the wildlife.


Botswana, beautiful Botswana, a travel destination worthy of a spot on your bucket list. Not only home to the ‘Big 5’, but also home to the ‘Small 5’ too.
