Meet Laurie and Gerda Aitchison

In 2017, we fell in love with Botswana’s natural wonders and warm hospitality during a memorable vacation with friends. Little did we know that this trip would shape our future. Three years later, leaving behind the beauty of Limpopo and Hoedspruit, we embarked on a new chapter.


Despite the challenges, we arrived in Selebi Phikwe, where I assumed the role of production manager at Selebi Phikwe Citrus in March 2021. Immersed in this fresh start, we embraced the vast scale and unique approach of this citrus project. Botswana’s lush landscapes and favorable climate create the perfect environment for cultivating premium citrus fruits.


Driven by our commitment to excellence, our dedicated team works relentlessly to nurture and harvest the finest citrus produce, meeting the discerning demands of customers locally and internationally. It fills me with immense pride and passion to contribute to the world of citrus farming.
