Back in surroundings that allow you to hear that morning call from the birds chirping at the first signs of dawn. Surroundings unpolluted by urban comforts and as darkness gives way to night allow you to have stars twinkle at you and it’s as if the world suddenly melts away with sweet nothings whispered from a lovers lips and like romantic rhythms, perfectly received to your ears. Being at one with nature and back to basics of appreciating the peace and quiet offered by being in the middle of nowhere is one of life’s luxuries in the world we live today. Memories of my trip to Botswana last October were just that,…moments of blissful pleasure being back in familiar surroundings. My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of crossing no man’s land on foot; Kazungula. This is a small area of land between Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia where we crossed over from Zambia into Botswana by a small ferry. Our Safari journey was to start from right there on the border crossing into Kasane, Botswana. As you drive away from the border you can spot many elephants in the drier fields. We were in Kasane for 2 days but managed to spot elephants, monkeys, hippos, baboons all without getting on a typical African safari ride.
