Top 10 – Southern Africa

Like a whirlwind we whistled through southern Africa only too aware that we are putting the merest toe in the water of this great continent. But alas, there is a big world out there waiting to be seen and Africa proper will wait for another time. Botswana played host to us for the majority of […]

While you were working – Success, Nxai Pans, Botswana
