Following an impactful and exciting week at the Global Expo Botswana, The Afropolitan team was treated by the Botswana Investment and Trade Centre (BITC) to a trip to the Chobe National Park in Kasane.


Joined by journalists from around the world, we were hosted at the Chobe Marina Lodge on the banks of the mighty Chobe River. Late afternoon boat cruises and early morning game drives afforded us the opportunity to intimately encounter the wildlife in its natural habitat. The herds of majestic elephants that roam freely on the streets of Kasane are a massive tourist attraction.

A highlight of the weekend was a boat ride across the river to Namibia, where we took a guided walk on the Impalila Island, a historic village in the Caprivi Strip. It was such a privilege to be able to interact with the local villagers who embraced us and welcomed our presence. All thanks go to BITC – the Chobe National Park in Kasane is a magnificent destination which we will never forget!
