Nxai Pan – Botswana

This was the second stop on our Botswana Trip after Baines Boabab.

At this camp we atleast had working showers and bathroom facilities. Once again after 40 min’s off-road we were tired and still had to set up camp. The main reason for going was to “hopefully” get lion catching springbuck, but our timing was bad with the time of year and ended up shooting all BUT that. It still was a great experience.  Nxai Pan is a nice destination to go to. Reasonably near by is Khumaga National Park and in the park you will find the Boteti River. We made a day trip to there where we saw alot of Zebra and Elephants.

One thing of Botswana I will remember is the smell and that is the place where I had my first ever Camping Trip. I had great company with me, including : Hilton Kotze, Francois van Zyl, Andrew and Nicolene. Having them along on the trip made it a fun and memorable time.

All specializes in a certain field. Hilton : Wildlife Photography, Francois : Landscapes and art aspect, Andrew : Ex-Ranger with knowledge and Nicolene : just for being the fun person she is.

 

Baines Boabab – Botswana

This was the first stop of our Botswana trip that took place in June. This was once again a trip of firsts for me, First time out of the country, First time camping and and..

I must say at first I was sceptical about the whole camping affair seeing that at Baines Boabab the only shower available is a bucket shower but in the end it turned out to be very fun. the scenery was absolutely amazing and just being there was such a great experience. In the pans itself I have never experienced silence and beauty as that. The Boabab tree’s are awesome to see, and overall experience was great.

I would suggest it for anyone who loves nature and camping. From here on we went to Nxai Pan National Park for further camping.

 

Kirkmans Camp : &Beyond – Sabi Sand

I recently went to the Sabi Sands Game Reserve where I stayed at Kirkmans Camp which is one of &Beyond’s lodges.

This was my first ever safari so it was a really exceptional experience, it was also the first time I had a shot at proffessional photography and I absolutely fell in love.

This trip was made possible by Hilton Kotze and Tanya Kotze from Africa Direct.
