Travel Diary: Safari and More in South Africa and Botswana
A safari is the perfect marriage of adventure and romance. Our travel editor, Jacqueline Gifford, scouted the top places to honeymoon in game-rich Botswana and South Africa.
Today we meet the meerkats! They hang out in fields near the camp, in family groups of about 20. They're constantly standing straight up, and looking for predators like eagles. If you sit still, they will climb onto your lap, and basically use you as a shelf so they can scan higher into the sky.
We also see Chapman's Baobab, a monster of a tree—the third largest in Africa. It was actually used as a post office by early explorers and travelers. We look mini standing next to it!Photo: Courtesy of Jacqueline Gifford
