My favourite places

I want you to see and experience my favourite safari and wildlife destinations, and believe me, you won’t be disappointed

Top of my list is the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Not only is it extremely beautiful and peaceful, it is also very wild and unspoilt with most of the Big Five and other large mammals.

The Chobe National Park in north-eastern Botswana has the best sunsets in Africa and also many elephants and hippos. In the winter months loads of antelope and buffalos are grazing on the banks of the Chobe River. The bird-life is fenomonal!

The famous Kruger National Park in South Africa is another place where I still spend a lot of happy hours between the high density of mammals and birds and it is a must see on any visitors list

Between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe one finds the mighty Zambezi River, a totally wild and unspoilt area. Lots of animals are drawn to the river; one can almost say that the animals come to look at you! The Lower Zambezi National Park (Zambian side) and Mana pools (Zimbabwean side) are in my book, some of the best wildlife destinations in Africa

Also shared between Zimbabwe and Zambia is the massive 1.7 km wide Victoria Falls. The locals call it Mosi-o-ya-tunya" or "The smoke that thunders” - a world heritage site and one of the 7 wonders of the world!

The country of Namibia is named after the beautiful Namib desert, where you can find some of the largest and highest sand dunes in the world. In the north of the country, the Etosha National Park is another great wildlife destination and home to a great variety of plain animal species that are adapted to the semi-desert environment

There are many other spectacular safari places worth visiting, just to mention a few:  Hluhluwe / Umfolozi; iSimangaliso (St Lucia Wetlands); Kgalagadi;  Addo Elephant Park; Table Mountain; the Garden Route and numerous other national parks in South Africa
