Elephant Sands, Botswana

If your traveling to Botswana this is MUST visit while your there. Imagine being less than 5 metres away from wild elephants! Imagine having elephants stroll past your tent/cabin all night!

I’m currently on a ATC tour which i booked with on the go tours and this little gem of a place was luckily one of our stops.
When we arrived I chose to upgrade, we are on a camping tour and a little luxury wouldn’t go a miss so when you have rooms with these views – I couldn’t resist.

In the middle of the camp site there is a water hole where elephants and other wildlife come for their water throughout the day and within 10 minutes of being there, the elephants strolled through the cabins to get their water. Me being over exited me ran straight over to the pool/viewing area and was instantly drawn in, 4 hours later and i was still sitting there. The amount of elephants that came and went was unreal!
In the evening there is a camp fire and you can continue to watch while the mummas and baby elephants come along.

We only stayed one night but it was defiantly a highlight for me! Its truly amazing to see and even more amazing how much time you can sit there and just watch these beautiful animals go about their life.

The cabins were HUGE! We had 2 double beds which after camping for 2 weeks was heaven, There was big wardrobe space and a dressing table and mirror for the mornings. The bathroom was large and clean which is always a must for me and I loved the bamboo which made it feel like it could be outside.

In the main part of the site there was a small pool which was nice to relax in while also having a perfect view of the water hole, there was also a bar, restaurant and small souvenir shop on site. At reception you could also book game drives and bush walks for a decent price!

Overall the place has a huge thumbs up from me and for £50-60 a night per cabin it is a real bargain!

Too Good To Be True Tuesdays – MILAN

Milan-featured

If you know me you will know how much I love going away, i also love searching online to find the best holiday deals possible which recently has become a big hobby of mine. As sad as it sounds I get a good thrill when I find a new holiday for an amazing price. I’m forever getting in trouble at work for searching online for holidays rather than doing my work and my friends/family are always asking me to find them something.Read More »

Birthday Weekend in Berlin

img_4817

From the get go I knew it was going to be a bit of a crazy weekend as I was off away with 6 of my closest girlfriends.

On the Friday evening we flew with Ryan Air to Berlin which takes less than 2 hours. While flying we had one too many drinks and typically just before we landed it happened to be a few minutes past midnight meaning it was officially my birthday! Of course the girls being the crazy loud bunch they are started singing happy birthday at the top of their lungs leading half the plane to get involved (including the pilot over his speakerphone) which was slightly embarrassing and left me completely red-faced lol. When we got out the airport we jumped in a cab and quickly arrived at our apartment (I have attached the apartment we stayed in below). We did arrive quite late so headed to bed ready for a sight seeing day in the morning.Read More »
