    Day 58: Ghanzi (Kalahari) & the San

    March 31, 2019 in Botswana ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Once everyone arrived back in Maun, we travelled further south to the Kalahari area to stay at a lodge/campsite which is run by the San people

    Once we got there we were taken on a short bush walk to learn about the San peoples’ traditions and their knowledge of plants’ medical power 🌱 🌿🍃 I find it actually a bit sad that the still existing tribes like Masai and San are now tourist attractions ... but I guess this way they get their income. And they have done a really nice job. At night they performed some local dances (crazy!) and told us some stories at a fireplace 💃🕺🔥

    Well, this is almost it. Only one more day before I travel to South Africa 🇿🇦, the final destination of my trip. On the one hand I’m glad that the Nomad life is almost over (it is exhausting, believe me), but on the other hand I’m not at all ready to go home ... I don’t even know how to fit in anymore in my old life as Africa has truly won my heart 💛✨🙏

    There are parts of Africa that need all the help they can get as they face life threatening disasters. Maybe that is a source for meaning.

    Before leaving camp and saying goodbye to the Delta, we went for a final sunrise walk in the bush - no animals but a very beautiful sunrise 👌☀️

    Day 55-58: Okavango Delta 4.0

    March 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 💛✨🙏

    I am 66, handicapped, and I happened on your incredible journey. I am an environmental advocate, but elephants are my paasion! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful place & people and the vulnerable and dignified creatures. Your photos are breathtaking. Hope my presence isn't unwelcome!

    Day 55-58: Maun & Okavango Delta

    March 29, 2019 in Botswana ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

    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.

    Day 54: Nata & Makgadikgadi Pans

    March 27, 2019 in Botswana ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    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

    Day 53: Kasane & Chobe National Park

    March 26, 2019 in Botswana ⋅ ⛅ 37 °C

    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 🐘🥰💛
