As the sun sets over Africa, we reflect on our adventure to this beautiful country - Botswana - no doubt one of Africa's last real bastions of game.
A land of contrasts - from the harsh beauty of the Central Kalahari, to the lush woodlands of the Okavango Delta.
As we bade this beautiful country goodbye, we know its image will stay with us forever - and in time - when its call beckons us again, we will return. Again and again.
