Capturing the Magic of a Botswana Safari


“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller


Botswana is a magical safari destination full of endless adventures waiting for you. Botswana boasts with an abundance of wildlife, including Africa’s iconic Big 5 (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino), and indescribable landscapes.

It is a place where words will never be enough to describe its true beauty and we can only rely on pictures to capture its magic. It may sound like a cliché, but pictures really are worth a thousand words.

Here are some pictures from Under One Botswana Sky’s recent Magic of Botswana photo competition that will surely inspire anyone to visit:

Botswana is a wildlife lover’s paradise.
