      When planning our trip, we had a plan and reservations right up to crossing the border into Botswana and staying at Drotsky's Cabins for 2 nights. Earlier, we had decided that we wanted a little freedom in our travels for the last 2 weeks of the trip and we would play it by ear where we went to next. Our priority was to see the Okavango Delta and then we would head back to Windhoek.

      While we were at Drotsky’s Cabins, the owner suggested that we stop at Guma Camp for our ...

      We crossed the border into Botswana with no problems and less than expected bribery. The lady at the desk looked at dads expired temporary South African passport and let him out the country in exchange for a cold coca cola. It may take quite a few more than one of these cans of sugary temptation for them to let him back in.

      As someone recently said, when you leave Africa, you leave a piece of your heart. I have to agree.
      The story goes that Sir David Livingstone - the Scottish missionary and first white man to “discover” Victoria Falls - upon his death had his heart cut out and buried in Africa, while the rest of his body was sent home to Britain. That’s what this place does to you. ...

      Our morning game drive started with spotting some cheetah tracks in the sand! We drove in a bunch of circles and looked through all of to inoculates we had, but could not find a cheetah. Instead, Chelsea found a giraffe! She was looking in a stand of trees, and suddenly thought 'that tree just took a step!' And then it wasn't a tree at all, but a beautiful bull giraffe! He let us have some absolutely incredible looks at him before wandering off into the ...

      ... toilets with toilet seats, bucket showers with provided towels, porch chairs, a fire pit, a dining tent, and 4 staff members, including a cook. This is roughing it, for sure. We had some tea and then took a drive. We found ourselves stuck on the road, not by mud, but because a black-backed jackal pup flatly refused to move from his spot in the shade in the middle of the road. He was adorable, and is now probably the most photographed jackal pup in existence. We drove out into ...
