Danni was really put under pressure when, after deciding to take a mini-sabbatical safari, I gave her less than a week’s notice. Even if she had more time to organise, I can say don’t think it could have been any better. I started off doing a safari in Hwange national park, Zimbabwe. The accommodation was high end but beautifully rustic with a view overlooking the watering hole where the animals drank at dusk. We did jeep drives but also explored on foot and not sure if just lucky or the skill of the guide (would say the latter as he was amazing) but saw a myriad of animals from Lions, Lioness and their cubs to Elephants etc. To top it off, the food was sensational and wine flowed into the evening.

The Next destination was Botswana for a river safari, which even though I had just done 3 days in Zimbabwe this offered a totally different perspective from the water. I ended up in Cape Town with a great guide doing wine tours which Danni’s team organised. Weather, unfortunately, wasn’t great, but nothing a few vineyards didn’t solve.  Would highly recommend using Sikeleli and their team.
