Experience Botswana through the eyes of an Africa Expert

Lekker’s Aimy recently visited Botswana.

Arriving in Maun, she took a charter flight deep into the Botswana veld and was in awe of her beautiful surroundings. Wildlife was in abundance as she enjoyed morning and afternoon game drives in the imposing delta. All the Big 5 were discovered, and she even got spoilt with a memorable helicopter ride over the Okavango Delta, a memory that will last her a lifetime.

Botswana has so many beautiful areas to choose from such as Chobe, Linyati, Kwando Selinda and more. Enjoy endless activities such as flying safaris to mobile safaris or why not indulge yourself and do both. Explore the African bush with a personal guide whilst taking bushwalks, mokoro rides, game drives, sunset boat cruises, sundowner’s all that with seeing the wildlife up close. You can be accommodated from high end luxury (for those glamping extremists) right to “down to basics” (where a tent and sleeping bag will suffice), a good nights sleep is never a worry.

Pictures below will let you in on this once in a lifetime trip!

Photographic safaris have become quite a popular past time. Here are 3 of our favourite destinations for the avid photographer.


Kruger National Park

One of Africa’s largest game reserves, Kruger National Park is home to many species of mammals, birds, reptiles and more. Explore the reserve on a safari vehicle, with personal trained guides looking for the ultimate photo opportunity.


Okavango Delta

Travel to the heart of Africa and visit the Okavango Delta for that perfect photo opportunity. Gliding through the Delta in a dugout canoe with your personal guide whilst searching for your muse to get that once in a lifetime shot.



One of the best times for photographers to take a safari in East Africa, is during the May to October months to see the memorable “Great Migration”; where once a year the wildebeest migrate to greener plains from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again.

A checklist for going on safari

When going on safari you never want to forget something whilst your miles out in the African bush, so we have gladly put together a list for you to pack.

  • Binoculars – to view those hard to see places.
  • Sunscreen – so you don’t go back looking like a lobster.
  • Hat – to ward off the Africa sun.
  • Clothing – Neutral coloured clothing. When going on cooler morning and evening safaris, make sure you take a long sleeve shirt or jumper with you as well as trousers. For a walking safari – take light weight clothing. For winter a beanie and thermal underwear are also recommended.
  • Shoes – preferably closed and suitable for hiking should you be taking a walking safari.
  • Camera – to take those memorable snap shots.
  • Insect repellant – to keep those pesky mosquitos away.
  • Flashlight
  • Identification books – for those mammal, avid birders, insect, flaura lovers.
  • Holiday journal – to memorise all the amazing things you have experienced in a country that is captivating.
