We prefer nothing at all as this usually means we have got a good sighting. If forced Gin & Tonic, but not in June, July August when it is cold!!!

G&T, in any weather. Anti-malarial you know! ;-)

The best one I had was at Gibb's Farm -- they called it a Tangawizi Twist. I have no idea if it is a standard drink or if they made it up. It had some kind of liquor, fresh lime juice, something sweet, and lots and lots of freshly grated ginger. Wow!

Sitting, still covered in savannah dust, still delighting in the day's sightings and sipping a cold Kili(manjaro), sighing over a theatrical slow setting of a humongous sun.

I guess I move between a glass of Amarula if it is cool outside, to having a cold local beer if it is warm. I love Windhoek beer if down south, Tusker in E. Africa when at altitude (only 4.2% alcohol) and a Safari Lager in Tanzania when I need a kick in the rear!

My favorite was not so much a "what" as a "where".... Sitting under a jackalberry tree watching (and listening to) a leopard feasting on impala while hyena paced below and we sipped wine and enjoyed our hors d'oeuvres. Couldn't tear ourselves away to find a more traditional spot. One of our most enchanting and surreal memories of Botswana.

I use to drink a Zimbabwean drink called "Soapy" because it looked like soapy water.I think it had lemon barley and a drink similar to Sprite but I can't remember. Tasted very cool and refreshing. Would love to know the recipe if anyone out there can help.
