From Kubu Island we drove to Khama Rhino Sanctuary before heading to Goo-Moremi Gorge. We then returned to South Africa where we camped at Matamba Bush Camp for one night and spend one night at Nedile Lodge in Welgevonden Game Reserve.

About the Book

No Footprints in the Night book cover from Victoria Stevens.

South Africa was kicking us out so we had to make a plan.

‘What about Botswana?’

My boyfriend couldn’t think of any objections so a few days before we overstayed our visas we hit the road in our trusty Defender and sped north.

The Kalahari welcomed us with vast empty spaces and gorgeous wildlife. We spent weeks camping in a true wilderness barely touched by man.

The character of the landscape changed in the waterlogged north but our encounters with dangerous animals didn’t stop.

We eventually returned to civilization after many weeks on the sandy road and I already can’t wait to go back.

No Footprints in the Night chronicles this journey of exploration through Botswana. We narrowly managed to escape being eaten by lions, killed by a puff adder and marooned on the Chobe River.

I came back with dirty clothes, an even dirtier car, and memories to last a lifetime. I hope my book will help you do the same. While on our adventure, I wrote travel journal updates to send back to friends and family, stuck in European lockdowns. This formed the basis of my new book. It is available to buy now on Amazon*.
