Where The Elephants Roam – A Chobe Safari

Adventures on the Chobe River

The Chobe River. My first encounter with her included the longest curtain of elephants I’d ever seen, elephants big and small crossing her width like proficient snorkellers seemingly unfettered by the crocodiles and hippos sticking their eyes out here and there. I thought my experience was unique. But such is the scene on the vast […]

My Trip | A Photographer on Safari

Randy Harris Photography

I’ve spent the last few days reading through old posts on our blog, a bit like returning to a favourite book or a journal from years gone by, to remember the things you got up to, the people you met… One person in particular stands out. One Randy Harris who travelled with us seven years ago […]

My Trip| Lori explores Zimbabwe and Botswana

My-Trip: The Adventures of Lori

If the English-speaking population were to choose a single quote to attest to the virtues of travel and it came down to a popularity contest, it would be a landslide. I wouldn’t have to look at the results to tell you the winner. Mark Twain was, unarguably, a clever man. A wise soul who is […]

My Trip | Lori Captures The Victoria Falls

My Trip: Victoria Falls

After the high of Namibia through Lori’s lens, I hit somewhat of a slump. A Tom-Petty free fall. A will-I-ever-receive-photographs-like-Lori’s-ever-again depression. The possibility that Lori went on other African adventures was the only thing that rescued me from the darkness. Motivated by this flicker of hope, I scrounged through our archives. What I found was an adventure that […]

An Accounts Team Adventure

Our Accounts Department left their calculators and ledgers behind and embarked on a safari break in the Sabi Sand, along with our COO John Holley.
