Our Experiences at HSA


A love so pure and I can’t wait to visit again! This time around, I’m spending a couple of nights with them.

I know I haven’t blogged in a very long time and I have a lot to share with you. If you follow us on our social media, you will be up to date with all the activities that we have been up to. We just recently launched a sister company under Mmamontle which purely focuses on the creative space of Botswana. What I love about these two brands (HSA & MM) is that they are very much aligned and therefore we are able to merge them together to offer you various experiences. I’m now confident enough to share that, 2019 will be a great year of exploring this beautiful unique country of ours together and we also can’t wait to host various people from outside of Botswana as well as outside the continent to come and learn our unique way of life and truly immerse themselves in our story. I will be announcing some 2019 tour packages of Botswana which you should definitely  enroll into if you are on a self discovery pattern that will truly set your soul alight.Read More

Happy Soul Adventures Featured on CNN

Interview by the bridge overlooking the Gaborone Bus Terminal

About over a month ago, we shot a segment here in Gaborone for Market Place Africa on CNN. This was such a big opportunity for me and I’m eternally grateful. I strongly believe that the disruptive economy is here to stay and it’s going to be the biggest game changer in the global economy and we all need to see how we can become a part of it one way or the other. One thing I love about this model is because its success story highly relies on collaborations and indeed if we work together as a team and not compete, we can create amazing things. Also, what I love about this model is that, everyone gets to benefit. I started my travel company Happy Soul Adventures beginning of the year and got licensed in March by the Government tourism division.

Have you ever been to the Makgadikgadi Pans?

Deep in the Makgadikgadi Pans, my happy place

For me, my ultimate goal is to just travel around Botswana and identify amazing locations and experiences that I can share with my guests. I believe my beautiful country has a lot of hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. My recent trip to the magical Makgadikgadi Pans was the first trip I ever did at my own personal capacity ever since I left my 9-5. This was a very empowering trip and experience for me because all the ideas that I had in mind and been planning eventually took shape and it was very much fun and liberating.

Travel around Botswana

If you haven’t been to Botswana yet and if you reside in Botswana and haven’t done weekend getaways to nearby towns, then you are definitely missing out. Weekend getaways are not about just driving out and going drinking with your buddies (well that’s a typical getaway vibe in my city), for me, a weekend getaway is about driving out to a small nearby town and just immerse yourself in the scenery and the also meeting the locals.

The people of Botswana are very warm, peaceful and welcoming. And always make sure that you say ‘Dumela’ which basically means ‘Good Day’ and that small gesture will open a lot of doors for you, humility will take you far. Authentic human connections are essential and they bring people closer and truly make life worth living.

I love leaving a mark of love and happiness wherever I go and life couldn’t be more grand.
