Photo Story - Best of Botswana

Updated: Oct 7, 2019

When someone suggested to me I should do a photo story on Botswana I suddenly realised that I had next to no images that aren't wildlife focused. This is the case even though Botswana has been my home for over 20 years. Maybe that says it all. What always seems to pull me back home is the African bush. I've always felt like that was where I belong. Where I can get lost in thought and creativity.

While wildlife doesn't define Botswana, it certainly is what defines my love for the country. At two weeks old my parents took me into the Chobe National Park for the first time, and 27 years later I've never gone more than 6 months without making a trip back to Botswana.

So here are a few of my favourite images from my time living in Botswana.

A Butterfly investigates a female Lion.

As a clouds roll across the dry Kalahari desert in central Botswana, the rain brings a welcome reprieve from the scorching heat. Central Kalahari, Botswana.
