Sure! How much will you pay me? Does that include air fare and spending money?

Northern Botswana is in a class of its own: In just 10 days there in late May
& June 1998 on a fly-in safari, we saw close on 50 lions - twice seen hunting -
once for buffalo and the other time for kudu; leopard on three different occasions including one with the remains of an impala in a tree and another one with a youngster; African wild dog three times, once just seconds after they had taken down an impala; and cheetah twice, the latter sighting of a female knocking down and ‘delivering’ an impala to her five youngsters. This is not to mention the
multiple other fantastic sightings including scores of elephants, magnificent Sable antelope, a martial eagle on a fresh impala kill, a ‘Giraffic Park’ scene at one of the camps with as many as 23 giraffe in one area, all staring at cheetah and some superb night drives (including my first ever sighting of Aardwolf).

My lasting impression of a September 1999 13-day overland Jacana Safari will
be the diversity of the trip: a tremendous variety of wildlife, birds, & scenery observed in an ever-changing landscape, and equally diverse activities: game drives, night drives, walking, boating, mokoro outings & an occasional moment or two to relax or to enjoy the superb food. This simply has to be the best full-service overland safari in Botswana! The group was fantastic and we had the best time!

On a June 1997 cross-country Mopane Safari we saw three different prides of lions (26 in all) in Moremi and Savuti, spending several hours observing and photographing them at a kill, with hardly another vehicle in sight. Other highlights included finding Pel's Fishing Owl near Xepa - a delightful mokoro trails camp deep in the Okavango Delta - and watching a herd of elephants swim across the swollen Chobe River, just the tips of their trunks protruding from the
water. A real 'National Geographic' moment!
