Reviews

Don't take our word for it - read through our customer reviews. All of these have been published without any editing.

Contrary to our expectations we preferred the camping to the nights in lodges, what an experience to be woken by elephant chewing at branches above your head, hyena rustling in the leaves behind the tent or honey badgers investigating the jeep - not for the faint hearted!

We had a fabulous trip, magical in the novelty of being in those fantastic African landscapes.

The best bit was definitely wild camping in Moremi and Savuti. Despite our anxiety before the trip about being vulnerable, we felt very safe with our two guides and it was thrilling to hear lions close by for some hours and see their prints next morning just metres from our tents. The game drives were always fruitful and the very long drives from one location to another not arduous because of the sights and sounds along the way. Chobe was a little more crowded and not so much to our liking but the Chobe river trip was enormously rewarding and hugely enjoyable. We loved the ferry experience crossing the Zambezi, and Victoria Falls were spectacular, but we felt ourselves looking back fondly at Moremi in the very touristy setting of Livingston. A very enriching holiday and wonderful introduction to Botswana and its delightful people.
