Follow us on our road trip safari through southern Africa's wildlife paradise Botswana. We drove through most of Botswana, including all the wildlife-rich areas like the Moremi Game Reserve, Chobe Nationalpark including the Chobe Riverfront and the Kalahari. We explored the Makgadikgadi salt pans in the center of the country, the Gcwihaba Caverns in the West and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in the south. We also shortly ventured into Zimbabwe to marvel upon the majestic Victoria Falls. We were lucky enough to spot most of the big, and many small, animals which call Botswana home. These include elephants, giraffes, lions, hippos, kudus, oryx, ostriches, honey badgers, bat-eared foxes, serval cats, warthogs, springboks, impalas and many more.

First Time In Africa: Ep 2 - Backpacking in Botswana & Zambia

My first trip to Africa was a 5 week adventure through South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. captured in this travel documentary.

This second episode sees me continue my G Adventures Tour towards Victoria falls.

My journey continues in Ghanzi learning the traditional ways of the bushmen. Driving along the elephant highway we then explore Okavango Delta by scenic flight and boat.

At Chobe River National Park we go on a sunset boat cruise and find ourselves surrounded by wildlife.

The journey finishes at Victoria Falls in Zambia. Here I have an action packed week of white water rafting, helicopter rides and bungee jumping.

Overlanding The Nxai Pan Botswana Episode 1

In this episode we are overlanding with Ed and Chris to Botswana, The Nxai Pan, in the rainy season, looking for predator encounters. We stop over 2 nights at Khama Rhino Sanctuary, 6 nights in the Nxai Pan Reserve, 2 nights at Xumaga Campsite, and then on the way back a night at Khama Rhino Sanctuary .

This part covers an epic trip towing the off-road trailers, on new roads and in new areas as we share our overlanding escape. The last time I camped at Nxai Pan, I was 9 years old with my dad, so this was all the more special.

Thank you Ed and Chris, simply epic trip gents.

Namibia, Botswana and Victoria Falls - Selfdrive Safari Roadtrip with 4x4 - September 2018

In september 2018 we went on a selfdrive safari roadtrip through Namibia and Botswana. It was one big adventure as we drove with our own 4x4 and slept on the roof of that car. These are the highlights of that trip; Victoria Falls, safaris, looaaads of animals (especially elephants, we love them!), the beautiful nature, camping on the most remote places. It was absolutely wonderful.

Everything is filmed with a GoPro 3 Black and a Canon 600D. Hope you will enjoy this movie!!

Our unique trip through Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe from August 26th to September 19th 2019

Southern Africa Safari (Full Length) Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, & South Africa

My first travel video edit... this is the long version. I recommend my short version if you don't have the time:

A compilation of videos and time lapse shots the five of us took during our 20 day self drive safari through southern Africa in June to July 2013. We flew from London, England to Livingstone, Zambia and drove south to Botswana then west into the Caprivi Strip along northern Namibia, across Etosha and Damaraland, ending in Windhoek. The driving portion of the trip was supported through Safari Drive's impressive staff and expertise since 1993. We capped off the trip with a visit to Cape Town, South Africa, including a cage dive with the White Shark Diving Company.

*I make travel videos & edits to relive my memories and to share experiences with others. I do not make any profit. If I help the artists behind the music featured in my videos, then I'm happy.*
