Gallery: Southern Africa...Part 1
This year in March I started my first tour through Africa with Geckos Adventures. In 17 days, we’ve visited 4 countries – South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe. From Jo’burg to Vic Falls and back to Jo’burg. Although the itinerary seemed slightly packed, the trip gave me an amazing first impression of southern Africa. Here in Part 1 of my gallery I show you my experiences from Botswana and Namibia.
Khama Rhino Sanctuary
Khama Rhino Sanctuary is a community-based wildlife project which was established in 1992 and covers 8585 hectars of the Kalahari Sandveld. Its aim was mostly to protect white and black rhinos but became an area for more than 30 other different animals. The park brings benefits to the wildlife’s environment and economic benefits to the local communities.
Chobe National Park
The city Kasane creates a perfect gate to the Chobe National Park as well as to the famous Victoria Falls. Inside the city, you can find a lot of different accommodations which range from campsites to luxury. Since the city is just next to the river ‘Chobe’ boat cruises are easy to reach and the best opportunity to observe Chobe’s wildlife. But Safaris by car are possible, too.
The Okavango Delta forms the biggest within delta worldwide. Here you can enjoy your cruise with the local Mokoros through the flora and fauna of that nature paradise.
In the Namibian Caprivi String you can rest in the amazing Ngepi Lodge which is located right at the Kavango River. Here you can take a swim in the river, protected from the crocodiles and hippos, although you will feel the hippos and night right next to your tent. You also have the chance to book boat cruises or walk through the close by village.
