Following in the Footsteps of the Famous Chobe Game Lodge in Botswana is a favored get-right-away-from-it-all for the rich and famous. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton re-married there. So, more recently, did Des and Noelle Bolton… and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands has been known to wander in for afternoon tea. Financier Anton Rupert, the Ackermans, Maureen Reagan, Richard Chamberlain and Sol and Dol all declare this remote area where the boundaries of Zambia, Zimbabwe,
SWA’s Caprivi and Bostwana meet – a magical zone. Indefatigable as ever on your behalf, Jani flew to this untamed last resort. FRIDAY 10, 5.30: A straggle of nosferatu the undead assemble in the dismal-before-dawn departure room of the airport.

foil-roasted.

Perhaps it’s the spectacular scenery, the whispered dawns, the stain-glass sunset the shooting stars that will make all your dreams come true
