Julie’s favourite destination in Africa
One destination that has been particularly life-changing for Julie has been Botswana. “There is something in the air in that country, a wildness that really makes you feel the heartbeat of Africa. Whether exploring the wild bushveld, the ever-changing river channels of the Okavango Delta, or the vast desert landscapes, one will be exposed to safari excellence of the most magical quality.”
