We are excited to announce our new role as ambassadors for +Context Travel and their Deep Travel program in Berlin!!

In this role we will work together to connect curious and caring travelers to a local community organization supporting refugees in an immersive and learning experience. The goal: foster engagement, understanding and empathy through two-way storytelling in action.

With so much of the recent news cycle being steeped in divisiveness and fear of the "other," it's easy to be disheartened and lose sight of the collective impact of individual connections and actions to redirect the flow of energy. That's what makes this Deep Travel approach to travel, and initiatives like this, perhaps more relevant than ever.

More thoughts on this power of individual interactions in the world of travel and details of this new project here: http://uncorneredmarket.com/deep-travel-project-context-travel/

Just three of thousands of zebra we'd seen coming down to the river for an evening drink.

We had no idea that Botswana is home to the second largest zebra migration in Africa. At its height over 25,000 zebra will make their way down the Boteti River in search of water during the dry season. During our stay at Leroo La Tau on the edge of Mgkadigkadi Pans National Park, we witnessed the prelude to this mass move as vast herds of zebra filled the valley and river basin through the course of the day and into the late afternoon. We were amazed by seeing a couple of thousand zebras...can't even fathom what 25,000 would look like!

Elephant mother and child, with other members of the herd in tow. Elephants were a welcome and seemingly permanent fixture during our time in Botswana.



We took this one just as our morning game drive at Camp Xakanaxa (Moremi Game Reserve) came to a close. It was as if they wished to say farewell.



A recent elephant census estimates that around 120,000 elephants call Botswana their home. With Botswana’s hunting ban and crackdown on poaching, we imagine this number will continue to grow.

Elephant factoid: Elephants mourn their dead, finding ways to bury the body with leaves and twigs, then remaining with it for days.

LIONS!! Rather amazing to come across a pride of 12 lions today while out on a morning game drive in Chobe National Park, Botswana!

We're traveling around Chobe and further afield to Okavango Delta this next week with Chobe Game Lodge and Desert & Delta Safaris. If you are interested in experiencing a similar trip, check out the #ThisIsChobe  Twitter chat tomorrow (June 9) at 10:00 & 17:00 GMT for a chance to win a 6-day trip for two, including airfare.

What do you get when you combine competitive goat carcass polo, hunting with eagles, wrestling on horseback, sheep bone-throwing, stick wrestling — and an opening ceremony complete with hearkenings of Genghis Khan, men ablaze on horseback, and a ceremonious appearance by Steven Seagal?

The World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan, of course!

To help you go deeper into this unusual event, we've created an experiential guide with 24 ideas to help unpack it all: http://uncorneredmarket.com/world-nomad-games-experiential-guide/

There’s nothing so rare these days as time to one’s thoughts and sensations.

Disconnecting for five days in Botswana's Okavango Delta and deeper reaches of the Kalahari with Desert & Delta Safari camps was a way for us to clear the mind, pivot the focus, tune the senses, and connect more deeply with the people and natural world around us. Sometimes, the world can wait...

Here's more on that experience: http://uncorneredmarket.com/okavango-delta-botswana-disconnect/

It’s likely that you’ll visit Chobe, #Botswana motivated primarily by the draw of game drives and the cycle of wildlife along the river’s edge. However, thanks to some select activities we not only had a unique safari experience, but we also emerged with a sense of Botswana’s history and a deep taste of its local culture.

Read on our experiential travel guide to Chobe with 20 ideas to get you started on your own #ThisIsChobe  experience: http://uncorneredmarket.com/chobe-experiential-travel-guide/

"Botswana. In Africa. But, where is it again? And, what's it like?"

We've been asked variations of this questions a lot during and after our trip. So, we share a few observations about the country that helped us understand it and shed light on why Botswana surprised us in many different ways: http://uncorneredmarket.com/botswana-travel/

“Delta" John Carter, a local legend for his knowledge and wisdom drawn from growing up in a village along the Okavango Delta. He served as one of our guides, including on this late afternoon paddle along the slowly rising network of waterways just outside Camp Okavango.

A remarkable experience all its own, but astonishing when you consider the ecology and cycle that sees the annual filling of these channels, then absorption of the water into the sands of the Kalahari Desert. In the current season, in only a few days, once dry patches turn to lagoon as the flood waters arrive. It gave us a sense of what the same land looks like flush with water…and without.

Hard to beat sunset on the Chobe River in northern Botswana. Something to look forward to each day at +Chobe Game Lodge as part of our #ThisIsChobe  experience...

Travel wide, live deep. Connecting the world through people, food and adventure
Introduction
Whether you intend to travel the world yourself, or you'd like someone to travel with vicariously, Uncornered Market is the place, Dan and Audrey are the people. They guarantee to inspire, to make you laugh, to make you cry, and to help us all realize that the world is small and big and beautiful -- and that we are all human.

In December 2006, we quit our jobs to follow our dreams. We sold everything and hit the road with backpacks and a serious case of curiosity.

We travel deeply and offbeat -- to places like Tajikistan, Paraguay, and Estonia -- with a focus on meeting people from all walks of life. And we rarely turn down an opportunity to eat amazing street food, trek through mountains, run down volcanoes, rappel over waterfalls…and get lost along the way.

Together, we have visited more than 75 countries. We're still going…and still married.

Come join us!
