When you are a woman on the move, who travels long distances, holds down a high powered position whilst doubling up as a devoted mother and wife - then you need a car that is going to stand by you through thick and thin.
This is pretty much why Boemo Sekgoma holds dear her luxurious BMWX5, which she says is the best travelling companion she could wish for and drives like a dream.
The vibrant and go-getting Botswana born Boemo is a staunch BMW supporter, and bought her X5 with a number of requirements in mind. Apart from extreme comfort, spacious interior, safety features, a powerful engine, it is also reliable and comes with a package that gives her peace of mind as a woman.
“The fact is, if I am driving long distances I don’t have to worry about anything happening, because BMW offer an excellent road side assistance plan, which could even include booking me into a hotel overnight if there is a breakdown,” she said.
Mentioning that she is very budget conscious, and although the BMW is generally considered a high end motor car, it is still cost efficient and she can notch up at least 1 000 kilometres on a tank, which she says is good going.
When asked what takes on the road so frequently, she replied. “I really love sightseeing trips, and apart from driving to Botswana on family visits, I have driven a lot through Namibia to visit the beauty spots,” she said.
“My car is a four-wheel drive which can go anywhere, which is another great feature because when I wind down, I like to escape into remote areas, “ added Boemo who is also a physiologist by profession.
