AdventureWomen travelers are passionately (and hopelessly) obsessed with Africa and its many treasures. Here are a few guest comments and photos from our African safari in Botswana in 2015 entitled (as we travel by private bush plane) our “Botswana Wing” Safari.
“Forget wonderful or awesome. This trip is beyond that. Ohhhhh! And WOW! are the expletives that are more fitting!” -Chris N, GA
“The one thing I was dying to tell my family and friends about the trip was that I saw a cheetah take off at top speed. And never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would have sundowners [cocktail hour] in the middle of the migration of hundreds of elephants. What a thrill!” -Ellen B, MN
“Botswana was my 5th African safari [with AdventureWomen] and I certainly hope not my last. Everything was great—the wildlife, the camps, the guides and trackers, the food…, and flying in a microlight over Victoria Falls. Thank you for another wonderful trip.” -Diane S, WI
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think that it was possible to get so close to wild animals in the bush. And I was dying to tell my family about the spectacular size of Victoria Falls, which I experienced in a microlight plane that gave me the sensation of a soaring eagle!” -Sandra C, NC
“I found out I could still be excited by and enjoy some of life’s simpler pleasures — the thrill of seeing animals in their natural surroundings and not behind bars; the smell of clean air and wild sage and the incredible beauty of the stars….” -Margo H, IL
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would experience Africa…, and never in my wildest dreams will I say “never in my wildest dreams” again because anything is possible if we dare to take a chance. Thank you for making our dreams come true!” -Ellen V, NJ
