A MAGICAL MEETING
IN BOTSWANA

Change course. Choose real adventure.

Sometimes things are meant to be. Sometimes the time is right. And sometimes an encounter feels almost destined. Like the encounter with the country you lost your heart to. The encounter with the elephant herd at a waterhole. The meeting with Queen Macoco. But also the encounter between three adventurous people in Botswana. These are the stories of Nancy, Ebe and Richard. These are the private safari planners for your personal encounter with Botswana.

Richard

Divemaster, zoologist and experienced guide.

For me, as with most people who visit, Africa got in my blood and I couldn’t help but return. I was fortunate that my parents took my brothers and me and on our first self-drive through Southern Africa when I was eleven years old. Between then and now I have had many opportunities to gain an extensive knowledge of this wonderful country. My experiences as a boy exploring Botswana influenced my decision to pursue a degree in Zoology with the dream of finding a job which allowed me to spend more time on the African continent. After working as a Divemaster in Mozambique the the opportunity arose to train and work as a guide at the prestigious Jacks Camp in the Makgadigadi Pans. Since returning from Jacks, I have spent nine years putting together trips to Botswana and I was a major contributor the Bradt Botswana Safari Guide.

During one of my countless adventures in Botswana, me and my partner Anna were staying at a camp in northern Moremi, this is how we met Ebe and Nancy. Immediately realising we shared a mutual passion for Botswana we have stayed in contact since and met up to discuss Botswana, travel and wildlife encounters whenever possible.

Nancy & Ebe

Enterprising adventurers share experiences.

Ebe & Nancy enjoy their favorite views of Botswana from the roof of their Landcruiser ’79. Dressed in safari clothing, they look relaxed, but the adventurer’s blood runs through their veins. It is therefore not surprising that these two former hospitality entrepreneurs from the Netherlands ended up making dozens of self-drives through Africa to ultimately find their dream destination: Botswana. They have been discovering this fantastic country for several years now by car, mokoro, helicopter, boat, plane, on foot and on horseback. They have visited each and every campsite as well as more than 50 lodges. Their knowledge about travelling in Botswana is impressive, and their enthusiasm and passion are contagious.

 

That’s our story. Now we are ready to make it your story. We are excited to use all the knowledge we have gained, the dozens of friends we made, the local partners with whom we are in close contact and the personal contact with, all lodge organizations, for your unforgettable safari in Botswana. The country where we enjoy spotting wildlife, cooking with locals, relaxing in lodges, spending the night at campsites, collecting adventures, being open to special encounters and making friends for life.
