Meet Johannes and Chrisna Els

Arriving in Botswana, we were greeted with open arms, instantly feeling a sense of belonging in this beautiful country. Our adventure with Selebi Phikwe Citrus began on March 1st, 2022, and from that moment on, we knew we were embarking on something truly special. The warmth and genuine care shown by the people of Botswana have touched our hearts in ways we never expected.


When we reflect on Botswana, the word “space” immediately comes to mind. The vastness of the rolling plains and the endless sky above create a sense of freedom and tranquility that is truly unmatched. It’s a destination that beckons us to escape, explore, and find solace in the untouched beauty of nature. And let’s not forget the exhilarating 4×4 river adventures that have become our family’s favorite pastime!


Becoming a part of this new country, community, and remarkable development of Selebi Phikwe Citrus fills us with joy, excitement, and a profound sense of hope for the future. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the growth of this thriving farm, knowing that our efforts are having a positive impact on the local community and the agricultural industry as a whole.


Botswana has become more than just a destination for us. It has become a place we proudly call home, where our dreams intertwine with the rich culture, breathtaking landscapes, and genuine warmth of its people. We look forward to the adventures that lie ahead and the memories we will create as we continue to embrace the beauty and endless possibilities of this incredible country.
