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.’
