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.

We took this trip in October 2008 and it was great!

We took this trip in October 2008 and it was great! No one else had booked and the trip was going to be cancelled but we paid a supplement and went as a single family. We enjoy the company of other families on Adventure Company trips but actually we had a fantastic time with just the four of us and our two guides. 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 then understood the warnings as you enter the national parks that you must not keep food in your tent or sleep in the open or you WILL be eaten by wild animals! It was good to see Vic falls but bear in mind that if you go in the autumn you will find that there is not much water coming over the falls on th Botswana side. We took a very enjoyable helicopter ride to get a better view of the falls.
