I love Cape Town – I’ve been living here for almost 2 years now and have not regretted the decision to move here for one second. There is however one thing that I miss with all my heart. The bushveld. Living in Joburg wasn’t exactly bushveld, but it was close enough to be able to drive to a game farm for the weekend. It’s a little more difficult from Cape Town, and it’s something that Simon and I both love and miss. In December Simon spoilt me with a last minute trip to Botswana.
We went up to the Chobe National Park which is in the north-west of Bots and borders on Namibia (Caprivi strip side). The river you see in the photos separates Bots from the Caprivi. The thing that struck me about this area is how lush and plentiful it is. I am used to the Kruger, which to me is more harsh – it seems that the animals need to struggle a bit more for their food and safety. Granted we did go in December, so there had been rain and everything was green and beautiful, but the animals were really healthy and there were plenty of them to see. It’s like the garden of eden for animals. Definitely recommended!
Here are some of the pics I took on the trip – enjoy.
