Natasha Wilmot - Welcome to my page
I was born in Botswana and have lived in Missouri, Franschhoek and Hout Bay. Maun in Botswana is currently my home.
Over the years I have managed to travel to the USA, Israel, Dubai, UK, Australia, New Zealand, St Helena Island, Thailand, Mauritius, Hong Kong, Comoros and the Seychelles. In Africa, I have spent time in South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Namibia.
Travel would be high on my lists of likes (however, now being a mum I have done a lot less of late). My hobbies include photography, metal detecting, snorkelling and horse riding. I also really enjoy being out in nature, gardening and reading.
Where I have travelled
Locally, I've travelled throughout the Western, Northern and Eastern Cape provinces in South Africa, traversed South Africa from the northern borders with Botswana down to Cape Town, and been to the Drakensberg and kwaZulu-Natal coast. In 2016 I spent an enjoyable week visiting camps and lodges in the Sabie Sands and Thornybush reserves around the Kruger National Park.
My favourite travel moment
Meeting a lone Maasai man walking across the Serengeti in the middle of nowhere!
What I love about Africa
The freedom we still have here. There are places in Botswana that still truly feel wild to me.
My best African travel advice
Ask the locals, they often know best!
