Our photo safari in Africa

Several months before the Covid pandemic, we went on a photo safari to discover the wildlife and landscapes of Namibia and Botswana – also stopping at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

It was during this trip that the idea for this blog was born. 

Reminiscing about our travels in Africa instantly brings back images and memories of all the things we experienced there:

Gazing dreamingly out over vast, wide-open spaces. Observing nature and wildlife, all while respecting their natural habitat. Exploring the Okavango river by mokoro (a traditional Botswanan canoe). Sailing on the Chobe river at the speed of a herd of elephants. Beholding the double rainbows around “The smoke that thunders” at Victoria Falls, and savoring the moment. Admiring the endless dunes of orange sand in the Namib desert. Lingering to watch the animals at a watering hole in Etosha National Park. Taking the time to enjoy the beauty of the light throughout the day, ending in a blazing sunset. Falling asleep to the sound of grunting hippos. 

Here are some of the highlights from our safari in southern Africa:

Oh my gosh, that sounds amazing 😍 another great memory of ours was a drive to see all the animals in the area (elephants, baboons, buffalo) take turns at the local taking turns at the local watering hole, by the light of the full moon 🌕

Nice photos! I was there in 2016. Looks like you were on Dune 45 in Namib-Naukluft National Park. The watering holes at Etosha were memorable, but the animals out on the pan was unforgettable. Great shot of the Oryx…my new favorite animal!

Thanks for the tip, Angela! We just gave you a follow on insta. Namibia and Botswana and Zimbabwe were amazing. We hope to explore more African countries in the future.


Beautiful photos – the Africa bug bites deep when you visit! I have just restarted my blog which will document some pretty cool adventures from my time as a safari guide and my latest trips to the continent of dreams, I hope you’ll like it.
