Recently I returned from a 14 day safari that began and ended in Livingstone Zambia. I cobbled this safari adventure together with Will Radecki and family to share the wonders of this region with Willy’s mother, brother, wife – Marie Elise, and their two teenage kids Analisa and Noel. I’m the tour guide and adventure planner. No way do I claim to be an expert safari guide, just a repeat story telling lover of this cherished part of Africa that I was able to eek out an experience of a lifetime, along with Willy and ML. Let’s say pre-safari adventure started in Livingstone.
I collected their weary bones at LVI – Livingstone International – a newly build airport just a few minutes outside of Livingstone from their long journey which began in Seattle Washington. After a wee bit of rest we spent time at the Zimbabwe side of the falls, which is two-thirds of the falls and arguably the best side to see the falls from, quite the spectacular site to see the massive amount of water rolling over the edge into the gorge throwing up a mist which the local tribes call, “Mosi o a Tunya”. The Smoke that Thunders. We had 3 jaw dropping days and nights in Chobe National Park, 2 nights in Khwai Concession area with Luxe Camping, awesome food prepared by Porche and a lot of attention from staff member with names like Shaolin. Out focus? Eat, Safari, eat, drink repeat. Lovely times and lovely staff and expert guides.
It was another spectacular safari with Royale Wilderness my new partner in bringing excited, rather anxious newby safari goers from the USA to get a taste of, a whiff of the camp fire, the sage, the smell of fields of flowers, including fields of devil thorns, African Starbucks, quality time with Leopards and Lions and Elephants and of course dung beetles and a rekindling of their DNA firing on all cylinders because with our feet firmly planted on African soil.
We had a great time with Johnny, the owner of Royale Wilderness and eagle eyed guide who spots things that no mortal man can see. ARE YOU BRAVE? YES
That can be arranged.
Ke a leboga.
