A morning encounter with wild dogs
It's 5. 30am and I've had my shower, coffee and fruit muffin, and I'm jumping aboard the 4x4, armed with my camera and binoculars.
Curious Elephants and a Taste of Honey
Last November, I was a very fortunate lady and travelled to Botswana. Like everyone who visits new and exciting destinations, there were favourite moments.
What is a mokoro?
I didn’t know either! So, when on my recent trip to Botswana my guide suggested it, I thought I'd better give it a go! When most people are going on safari in Botswana, they think of the traditional 4x4 jeep game drives and boat cruises as a way of seeing the country and wildlife, but if you want to get an authentic and alternative experience on safari, then I would highly recommend a mokoro boat trip on the Okavango Delta.
Leopards, wild dogs and more…
We all know cats love fish, but let’s be honest, a fish eating leopard is not the first thing that springs to mind when you are talking about a safari in Botswana, but they do exist and they do eat fish – on occasion.
21st June – 5th July 2017 When it comes to a holiday, my idea of heaven is: somewhere fairly private and quiet, a short distance from a beach and other resort amenities, plenty of sunshine, a nearby swimming pool, comfortable sunbed and my fully charged Kindle.

The Wild dogs of Lagoon Camp
We chased the chasers. Could these cute puppies be savage killers? The alpha female had a warthog dinner on her mind.
Black-maned Kalahari lions
From our cosy beds, we listened to the roars all night. They seemed to be getting closer as dawn broke.
Botswana mobile camping safaris
The scratch-scratch noise on the tent was followed by a happy “Good morning”. It was day break in Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve, and tea in bed was followed by a hearty breakfast by the campfire.
