If you don’t get your kicks on Route 66 but prefer to take a walk off the beaten track, head to Botswana for the ultimate taste of wild life in true African style. With a third of the country dedicated to national parks, the wild is your footstool; you’re free to become one with nature alongside the animals who roam across the largely unfenced areas in all their glory.

Experts will tell you that Deception Valley in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is an experience not to be missed. “You have to see it to believe it,” they all chime. Well why not! Add it to your bucket list, and tick it off this August! Better still, if you’re heading out in the king of the great off road, the Jurgens Safari Xplorer, you know you’re ready for the wildest of action… If you purchase a new Jurgens Safari Xplorer before the 31st August, you’ll get a FREE extension awn and wall set valued at over R9000 – this is your opportunity to explore in style!
Don’t forget Women’s Day on the 9th of August… romance her by doing some bird watching in Chobe, followed by a sunset cruise along the Chobe River. That’s the life! If you’re in Botswana on the 19th of August you could always take your awesome other half to the National Art & Basket Craft Exhibition in Gaberone.
It has to be said that the Jurgens Safari Xplorer is just the thing to wow your outdoor-loving partner with… not only do you have the luxury of the star gazer double bed, the pull-out galley, complete with fridge, a two plate gas stove and wash up basin make preparing a delectable romantic dinner so simple. The built-in geyser operates on either gas or 220V, and along with the ample water storage on board, the external shower in the privy tent would be liquid bliss at the end of a long lazy African day!
When it comes to keeping your meat selection perfectly preserved for the entire trip, you’ll see there’s a Snomaster Fridge Freezer for everyone, available from Campworld dealers nationally: an array of capacities and features to match your every need. Another Campworld must is the Snomaster Heavy Duty Icemaker is the perfect travel-companion for that nightly drink on the rocks, or thirst quencher with friends.
Elephant Day is on the 12th of August… what better way to grab life by the tusks than to set off for some spectacular elephant sightings in the Moremi Reserve. The reserve comprises a breath-taking landscape of forests, lagoons, floodplains and islands. Game viewing is excellent all year round and you may even be fortunate enough to come across a pack of wild dogs… a rare encounter for most.
Baines’ baobabs are a jaw dropping sight to behold. Situated in the Nxai Pan National Park, the cluster of thousand-year-old trees were named after artist Thomas Baines, who captured their beauty in a painting in 1862.
All these wonderful experiences await you in Botswana this August, but before you embark on another epic adventure, be sure to stop in at Campworld to stock up on a myriad of camping gear you may need.
