Each and every trip I take and every single new location I pay a visit to, generally feels like the most fascinating encounter – till the subsequent one particular. 


My pay a visit to in Botswana was diverse. It was genuinely a quite particular trip, a life-altering encounter that taught me beneficial lessons which will keep with me for the rest of my life. 


Any individual who knows me knows how significantly I despise zoos and animal parks featuring many exotic animal species. I was under no circumstances curious to see an elephant or feed a giraffe so I under no circumstances did (#thankgod). I did not really feel I was missing out on some thing although. 


This genuine African safari entirely changed my thoughts considering the fact that it was so significantly additional than I anticipated: it was the most thrilling adventure of my life! 


We left Maun at 6am although it was nevertheless dark outdoors, riding an open jeep in spite of the truth that it was winter in Botswana at the time. The view of the savanna at dawn was magical. It is not daily you get to see an elephant up-close or take pleasure in your breakfast and lunch ‘lost’ inside the African savanna or drive by a hippo, a giraffe or a lion — and I really feel blessed I had the chance to encounter it. 

My safari incorporated all of the above and significantly additional. It was a 12-hour safari complete of breathtaking pictures, life-altering experiences, remarkable firm and the ideal safari guide we could possibly ask for: Killor was so skilled that his other name could simply be Killer! We had been acquiring the Kalahari Desert vibes with its exceptionally higher temperatures and the gentle breeze from the Okavango Delta, such a divergent terrain. We invest the day experiencing the magic of the wildlifew wandering inside the vast wilderness. 


The beginning point for our safari was at the Moremi Game Reserve that rests on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta exactly where we had the chance to watch uncommon wild species like Cape Buffalos, Angolan Giraffes, hippos, zebras, Impalas, elephants and, of course, lions (we only saw one particular). 


If you happen to be dreaming of going on a safari and you need to have to know additional, prepared my complete guide with guidelines and helpful suggestions just before organizing yours!
