Khama Rhino Sanctuary

Last weekend a group of fellow Bots 10'ers and I took a mini-vacation to the Khama Rhino Sanctuary in the northern part of Botswana, approximately 25km passed Serowe. It was quite the adventure from the start (with storms on the horizon and a slew of transportation issues) but it proved to be well worth it!

The Khama Rhino Sanctuary is exactly like it sounds - an oasis where you can truly escape and feel immersed in all that is quintessentially Africa. The chalets and campsites are nestled in the bush and animals literally come up to your door. We made friends with a red-billed hornbill that we affectionately called Zazu and we sat watch for Naughty, a hand-fed black rhino who ventures around to welcome visitors. Although torrential downpours and roaring thunder and lightening threatened to ruin our trip, they only added to our excitement as the storms cleared for both of our game drives (we did two) and livened up our evenings. It was one of my favorite weekends in Botswana so far.

It has taken me an entire week to upload photos but I am happy to provide you with this slide show of some of the highlights from our game drives! Enjoy!
