Botswana is Call­ing

Indwe - - Contents -

Spend­ing time in Botswana opens one’s eyes to the pos­si­bil­ity of achiev­ing a mag­i­cal bal­ance where hu­mans and an­i­mals co­ex­ist. It is a coun­try that ev­ery­one should ex­pe­ri­ence at least once in their life­time.

Botswana, a land­locked coun­try in South­ern Africa, has a dis­tinct char­ac­ter. There is some­thing in the air, a wild sense of pri­mal ex­is­tence that re­ally makes one feel the heart­beat of Africa and its oneness with all that in­habit the land. Whether ex­plor­ing the wild bushveld, the ever-chang­ing river chan­nels of the Oka­vango Delta, or the vast desert land­scapes, you will be ex­posed to sa­fari ex­cel­lence of the most mag­i­cal qual­ity.

I re­cently had the op­por­tu­nity to visit this pris­tine coun­try and ex­pe­ri­ence some of its breath-tak­ing lo­ca­tions for my­self. One par­tic­u­lar lo­ca­tion that stole my heart was Tuskers Bush Camp – a tented sa­fari camp that lies be­tween the Nxai Pan Na­tional Park in the east of Botswana and Moremi Game Re­serve in the west.

Moremi is a renowned wildlife hotspot. Lion, leop­ard, chee­tah, wild dog, and spot­ted and brown hyena are some of the top preda­tor species that are re­cur­rently seen in this bushveld paradise, along with a huge range of birdlife.
