Review

In Roland Steffen‘s captivating short documentary, the heart of Botswana’s Safari comes to life in a breathtaking journey that immerses viewers in the untamed beauty of the nation’s wildlife, nature, and soul. Steffen skillfully captures the essence of the Safari experience, providing a visually stunning exploration of the vast landscapes and the diverse wildlife that calls Botswana home.

Guided by the expertise of Danny Crous, Director/Photographer of Earth Ark Travel, and featuring the perspectives of local people, including the insightful Moagi Rain Robson, a guide and tracker at Letaka Safari, the film transcends mere travelogue to become a genuine ode to Botswana. The inclusion of these voices adds depth and authenticity to the documentary, offering a holistic perspective on the Safari experience.

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the documentary serves as an educational piece, inviting viewers to not only witness the adventure but also gain a deeper understanding of the ecological significance of Botswana’s Safari.
