Get to know us

Hi, we are the Van Niekerk Family!!!

Our family resides in Botswana. In Botswana, we cultivate land and lead a modest lifestyle.

Being able to experience nature so near to home is a fantastic privilege. We have been accustomed to this tranquil setting.

Our two girls are 2 and 6 years old. Since some of the schools are too far away, we are homeschooling.

Although we will need to adjust to this, in the end, we will succeed.

I want to urge everyone who is in a similar situation to work with homeschooling by finding your own rhythm.

What is camping in Botswana like…

Camping in Botswana is a truly enchanting experience that allows us to reconnect with nature and create lasting memories as a family.

We venture into the breathtaking wilderness, our senses are awakened by the sights, sounds, and scents that surround us.

Every morning we wake up to the gentle rustling of trees and the soft chirping of birds, illuminated by the golden rays of the morning sun.

In the evening we gather around the crackling campfire, sharing stories and laughter while preparing a delicious breakfast over the flickering flames, so evenings around the campfire are most special to us!

During the day, we are exploring the vast landscapes, encountering a diverse array of wildlife along the way. From majestic elephants roaming freely to graceful giraffes gracefully grazing, so every moment is filled with awe and wonder.

As the sun begins to set, the sky in hues of orange and pink, we retreat to our cozy tents nestled amidst nature’s embraces.

The night takes on a whole new dimension as the symphony of nocturnal creatures fills the air. We listen to the haunting calls of hyenas and the rhythmic chirping of crickets, feeling a sense of serenity and connection to the wilderness that is unparalleled.

Camping in Botswana allows us to escape the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and immerse ourselves in the simplicity and purity of nature.

It is a time to bond as a family, because it is also a time to disconnect from the digital world and rediscover the joy of being present in the moment.

So, let’s embark on this extraordinary journey together and create memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.
