It took us just over a week to drive through Botswana to Victoria Falls. Along the way, we stopped at Khama Rhino Sanctuary and Elephant Sands. We also visited Chobe National Park for a safari, but we saw more animals outside the park around Kasane…
On this trip we racked up over 2300 km to find lions. We traveled to Twee Rivieren in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Then on to Mabuasehube in Botswana.
The kids’ school, The American International School of Johannesburg (AISJ) put on a big sports tournament. Ellie played soccer with the kids from Pretoria and Noah played on the high school rugby team.
