Who We Are
We are a Botswana-based couple who live for those outdoor, bush-bound moments.
Being Serbian by Nationality, the most popular, (half-joking) question I got asked when I went to visit family overseas was "Do you have lions and elephants in your back yard?"
Now, while my Rhodesian Rhidgebacks were fine-looking dogs, they didn't really resemble the "King of the Jungle (or bush, as we say in Africa)". But living in Botswana does give you many opportunities to go out and explore the wonderful, wild outdoors. I never really did that during my childhood, bar the one school trip that was the first and only time I slept in a tent.
My ever-growing passion for getting out into the African nature and bush has matched my passion for writing and this has culminated in this blog being formed. If I'll be inspired to write about the places I visit, then I figure I'd want someone to read what I write in the hope that it inspires, informs and intrigues the reader so much, that they'll want to go out, travel and explore as well.
The ride that will take us to where we want to go
The mighty steed we chose for our future adventures, when we sold our city-friendly VW Polo a year ago (in August 2015) was the ever popular RAV4 from the ever reliable Toyota brand whose popularity was clearly defined in a Toyota-sponsored billboard advertisement I saw once, a long time ago which simply stated "Botswana is Toyota Country". Four simple words define what Toyota is in Botswana. So it seemed like the more logical choice when it came to choosing between the RAV4 and the Mitsubishi Pajero IO. So with a stock-standard Toyota RAV4 we tackle our adventures across Botswana and beyond, enjoying the ride along the way.
