Botswana is incredibly special; it is considered the model for democracy on the continent of Africa. There are no political problems as we encounter in other African countries; crime is unusual. I feel safe here. The people are friendly and welcoming to visitors.
Before we leave for our mobile safari, we'll spend a morning in a mokoro (traditional canoe), poled silently through the wildlife on shore.
The Okavango Delta was designated the 1,000th UNESCO World Heritage site in 2014 and is the largest inland delta in the world. It is formed by a river flowing down from Angola and forming a tectonic trough in the Kalahari Desert. It does not flow into the sea; all of the water flowing into the delta ultimately evaporates. It is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, and an immense wildlife wonderland.
"I had the pleasure of being led by Peace, and his colleague, Disho, on Deb's 10-day safari throughout northern Botswana, in June 2019. I am a long-time wildlife enthusiast and, while fairly knowledgeable in the subject, was so grateful to have at hand the local knowledge of guides who have spent their entire lives in the area. Peace is so familiar with the geography and its furred and feathered and scaly inhabitants that he knows where to go at any given time for the best possible wildlife-viewing experience. Not only is he a superb naturalist, he lives by a 'safety-first' mindset, as our comfort and well-being are obviously critical to a top-shelf safari. Having a guide of his quality enhanced my experience immeasurably!" ~Steve Spangle, Retired Wildlife Biologist, Phoenix, AZ

Peace, my friend and wonderful safari guide, and I have been putting our heads together to plan a trip to Botswana and Zambia for a small group of friends/guests. Peace, born in a tiny village in Botswana, and graduated from one of the most rigorous guide training on the continent of Africa 20 years ago, has been guiding people through what he thinks of as his backyard, ever since. Yet, it is one of the best places in the world to see animals in their own environment.
