MY BEST PHOTOS OF BOTSWANA
Outside of Europe the majority of destinations are unique but few come close to a week of safaris in Botswana. Before coming here, the only other safari I had done was in South Africa when I was a kid. I don’t remember much apart from being utterly disappointed but you can’t have it your way every time!
We knew next time we couldn’t be taking any risks. We wanted to see everything; from the biggest lions to the fastest Cheetahs and from what I had heard Botswana was the place to deliver!
In all my travels I am yet to be as trigger happy with my camera I was then. I would have constantly made jokes about wondering how the hell I am going to find the time to get through all of these. But in the end I did, it might have taken me the guts of 9 months but I ploughed through and couldn’t believe what I had captured.
Rare modest alert – Lets just make this clear, taking a good photo here in Botswana is the easy part, anyone can do that when you are surrounded by incredible landscape and animals. Every time I took a good snap, I kept thinking
“That’s the best photo of the trip, nothing will beat that.”
Then after driving around the corner you would be met with a herd of 50 elephants or a Leopard chilling out in the trees!
Don’t be fooled by these photos and assume it was taken by some pro photographer! This is part and parcel of a trip to Botswana and like every other tourist you will be spoilt with what you see. So if you haven’t been and have been given an urge, give me a shout on my IG, I’d love to hear where you are going!
SAFE TRAVELS, DS x
