I went to Botswana in January and stayed in the south at Tuli Lodge - an hour and a half flight from Jo'burg. It was a great time of year to go as it’s the rainy season so although the south is dry we saw plenty of elephants, giraffes, wart hogs, a lion on the first safari and a python on the last. Plenty of herds of Impala, Zebra, Elan and Kudo.
We also stayed at Craigs (organised though Tuli) and we walked there which meant you get to track the animals, get close to the birdlife and flora and fauna. On the walking trip we saw a Black Mamba - something to remember. Craigs is an unfenced camping ground so isolated and with an air of excitement. Steve our guide was excellent. Sundowners every night at a different spot to watch the sunset.
Other highlights included visiting the orphanage in Tuli which has been built by the owner of Tuli Lodge and a quick trip to Victoria Falls.
Our two-week trip felt much longer as you get so much into a day. This was my first safari and I’m now planning a trip to Namibia.
Hot tip: extremely romantic.
