return to the Delta

After a few days in Frankfurt, I boarded a plane again and went back to Botswana for a week or so. I flew straight to Maun and from there, on into the middle of the delta for two days of bushwalks, mokoro trips and amazing nature in the beautfiful Okavango Delta. We stayed at Moremi…

a last trip to the bush

I wanted to spend some time in the bush and wave goodbye to all the animals that are out there before I leave Botswana. And despite the unusually long and heavy rain over the last few days, I was lucky and got to see some elephants, giraffes and lions, among them even a lioness with…

finally another game drive

Recently we realized that it has been a long time since our last game drive and shortly after that Björn surprised me with a quick weekend getaway to Madikwe, Big Five country.

After our visit to the VicFalls, we went on to Kasane, the gateway to the Chobe National Park. We spent an afternoon at the pool looking out on the massive river before exploring the waterfront on a boat and coming quite close to the wildlife. There is a lot more water now than last year,…

Breakfast with elephants in the Okavango delta

The Okavango-delta in Botswana is famous all round the world as one of the pristine areas with an overflow of birds, mamals, trees and flowers – also it is one of the rare areas, where a strong river simply silt up with an enourmous delta in the middle of the Kalahari desert. As I am…

Weekend in the Bush

We spent the weekend at the lovely Molema bushcamp in the Tuli block and slept in a perfect little chalet overlooking the Limpopo River under huge trees. In the afternoon, we went to a hide with a great view of the dam where we spend hours on the comfy chairs, taking naps and watching the…

Rhinos, football-heroes and luxury overnight-stays

Last weekend we managed to go on my first longer trip outside Gaborone and drove about 1.500km the whole weekend and it was amazing. It started with a stay in the Khama Rhino Santuary in the near of Serowe, where we arrive in the late night and were amazed by the beautiness of the santuary…
