Professional Safari Guide - Viewpoint

Part 1:

“Knowing the beauty of your own country.”Shylock Raborokgwe

Over 20 years as a Professional Guide has taken Shylock to all destination areas in Botswana. He’s been to Moremi and Chobe Game Reserves. He likes to combine trips to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta – “let guests see how dry the desert is, no water, no shower, dust; then go the Delta and travel for a few days with water everywhere. The contrast is the Botswana experience! The two ecosystems are terribly different. People coming to Botswana want to see the diferences”

Shylock has done trips to Nxai Pan, Linyanti, Kutse Game Reserve, Drotsky’s Caves and Tsodilo Hills. For him, “The Tsodilo Hills are a ‘different ballgame’ – you don’t see the obvious, your away from everthing and the paintings are something else. ”

In Part 2, we will find out what Shylock considers ‘a perfect trip.’

Harrys Botswana Experience

Visit Harrys Botswana Journal and see Ngamiland through the eyes of a 10 year old explorer. His original hand written journal is provided to give that 'on the road' feeling.

Harry is sitting on the roof, waiting for Shaka and Captain to check the truck.

The relaxed leopard was one of the highlights of the morning game drive. After 10 minutes with the leopard it was time for Harry and the rest of the group to have breakfast and talk about the mornings sighting.
