I’ve only been back from Africa a few days, and I still haven’t gotten over everything I experienced over there! It was the first time for me to visit that continent, and it was surely something different. I started out at Victoria Falls, then travelled through Botswana and ended up in Johannesburg. While I’m trying to structure all that into some more sensible posts, I want to show you some of my favourite Africa pics from this trip. Because a picture says more than a thousand words, especially if a continent is just that insanely beautiful.
My first day I spent on a trip to Chobe National Park in Botswana. It was without a doubt one of the best days of my trip! Doing a game drive in Africa has been on my bucket list for I don’t remember how long, and Chobe is the perfect location for this.
Chobe is the elephant capital. No other place in Africa has a population this big. Which means you see plenty of them when you do a game drive. We also spotted lots of adorable baby elephants. But the highlight was to see them swim across the Chobe River during our boat tour.
Another bucket-list worthy item was seeing the Victoria Falls. I visited them from the Zimbabwe side, before going over to Zambia for a rafting trip. More on that another time, for now let’s just enjoy their beauty!
Chobe was not to remain my only game drive in Botswana. The second one happened at the Rhino Sanctuary in Serowe. It’s the only place in Botswana that has rhinos. They have a breeding programme and aim to reintroduce rhinos to more places in Bots. Besides the rhinos, there’s plenty other animals to see at the sanctuary.
The final destination of my trip was Johannesburg. It’s certainly a different experience compared to European cities. But an interesting one! After being told constantly how dangerous Joburg is, I’m very glad I still got to see a lot and didn’t hide away in my hostel for four days.
