Day 55-58: Okavango Delta 4.0March 30, 2019 in Botswana ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C
At 5.30 pm it was finally “cold” enough for some activities. So we went for a sunset boat cruise. And I was lucky to see the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen 💛✨🙏
We spent one day in Maun and had the chance to simply relax at the pool before a few of us travelled into the Delta for a 2.5 days camping adventure ⛺️🧘🏼♂️ And by camping I mean real camping ... the toilet is a hole in the ground, the shower is a bucket of water hanging from the trees and the bed is a sleeping bag in a tent standing in the middle of the bush 🦛🐘
It was a great experience. I once again learned about myself that I can manage without any luxury 👌🙏 BUT: I am definitely looking forward to a proper shower and my own bed at home ✨
Anyways. The Okavango Delta is a beautiful place. I experienced the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets of all time ☀️, saw a sky full of stars ✨ that was more than wonderful and I just loved the silence of the bush. It was incredibly hot though and you could definitely see that climate change is happening here - no rain, not enough water 💦 It was so hot that we were forced to stay at camp from 12 noon to 5 pm... and even that was a challenge.
I’m going to make more than one post on this due to the amazing pics ... here you will see the first day only.Read more
Botsuana 🇧🇼 has been a perfect mix of driving, relaxation and visiting parks so far 💛
Today we drove all the way to Nata and visited the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, famous for its saltwater lakes (pans). We were lucky to witness a beautiful sunset and see an amazing landscape with lots of flamingos 💕Read more
Another country, another safari. Today we travelled to Botsuana 🇧🇼, a beautiful country which I have always planned on traveling to.
Once we have crossed the border 🇿🇼 🇧🇼, we went on a safari to Chobe National Park. The special thing about this park is that it’s located on Chobe river where lots of animals spend their days and find drinking water 💦.
After a Safari by car, we went on a boat safari 🚣♀️ The view from the boat was simply amazing ... we were just a few meters away from elephants taking a bath 🐘🐘🐘
Elephants are fascinating ... they will probably always be my favorite wild animals 🐘🥰💛Read more
Today I have made one of my dreams come true: I jumped out of an airplane ... skydiving 🌈✨🧚🏼♀️
And it was AMAZING! I actually want to do it again right away ... I guess this is what being on drugs must feel like because afterwards I was the happiest and most excited person on earth for the whole rest of the day ... I wasn’t even able to sleep 🧚🏼♀️💛🥰
So I guess this is the first of many more to come ... 🙏🌈

We spent one more day in Zambia‘s capital 🇿🇲, Lusaka, at a very nice campsite before leaving this lovely country behind and entering Zimbabwe 🇿🇼 at Victoria Falls.
Victoria Falls is a tourists attraction due to the mighty falls which are one of the seven natural wonders of the world and UNESCO world heritage ✨🌈
See for yourself how beautiful they are ...Read more
Today we had to leave South Luangwa and our beautiful camp behind to move on further in the direction of Victoria Falls, our final destination on Sunday.
Before we got back on the truck, though, we visited a local village and textile factory 🇿🇲 👭 As usual the people in the village were very friendly, especially the children ✨👭 Every time I’m with these people I would love to stay and work with them - they live in harmony with nature and although they have so little they show so much happiness 💛✨🙏Read more
A perfect day of relaxing at camp with plenty of me time 🙏✨ It was wonderful and just what I needed - long naps during the day, time to read and time to think.
In the afternoon we did go for an activity though. A night game drive 😱 It was beautiful to be out in the bush at sunset and to watch some of the animals in the dark 🦛🐆🐊Read more
