About Sarah Fox

I am a social media marketer for a specialist African tour operator selling luxury safaris, honeymoons and family holidays. I often say that I have my dream job. Having always had a passion for travel as well as African wildlife, with Mahlatini African Travel I get to indulge these two passions in equal measure. For the past 6 years I have been privileged enough to travel most of Southern and East Africa - all in the name of research! My husband and I are both South Africans currently living in the UK but with plans to return to Africa one day. Our idea of the perfect break is escaping the rat race and heading for our little piece of heaven - the Kruger Park. Having recently become parents to a baby boy we are very excited to introduce him to the African bush and all the adventure that it brings.

Botswana in the green season

Most people wishing to visit Botswana will likely be advised to head to the country during the dry season which runs from April to October.
