If we thought Savuti was good then Chobe was in a different league!!!!! Add Savuti and Chobe to any Botswana Summer itinerary!!!!

Savuti…….mind blowing!!!!

Things just could never have been better in Savuti. If you ever were wondering about coming to this region at this time of year…..then go to SAVUTI!!!!!!

Liuwa Plains

This park didn’t have the number of animals but it packed way above its weight in terms of birds and scenery!!! We will definitely return and hope to see the massive conservation effects having a positive effect on the park. One to look into in the future!!!
 

Love the Saddle Bills and the sunset!!

hmmmm…….

The Wattled Crane won!!!…

Northern Kafue

Northern Kafue….amazing. We landed up partying with one of the lodges as they were packing up to leave as they were closing for the summer….however we lost the Garmin as I was thrown in the pool and I swear my sunnies were in there too!!! Otherwise it was extremely beautiful but game wise…..the park was saved on the last day…

Southern Kafue

3 Days in the Lower Zambezi was relaxing, we didn’t see that much of a variety but the park is beautiful!!!! The community campsite we stayed at was perfect as we were all alone right on the banks of the river!!!

Morning yoga!!!

Sunrise over the Zambezi:)…

Not a bad replacement for Makuzi…..one thing it does have is amazing snorkelling!!! We blown away by the colours of the fish we never thought there could be such an abundance in a fresh water lake!!!

Makuzi Beach

Planned to stay here 3 days…….11 days later after major discussions we reluctantly decided to move on. Makuzi is by far the best place to park off and enjoy Lake Malawi!!! It should be on everyones!!
 

Kicking back and chilling out…

Nyika Plateau

Hmmmm….a long drive there…..a let down!!! Most of the park had been burnt and there are few animals around. The one amazing thing are the large herds of Roan

Incredible Ruaha

WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!! Ruaha is spectacular during the dry season, all the game concentrates on the waters edge and you are guaranteed seeing Lions from your campsite on each day and you will have Ele’s in your camp!!!!
 

Scanning for food

Another trespasser in our camp

Buffalo’s chasing the Lions away

What a sunset!!!
