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.

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.
