Botswana Birthday Trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa & Zambia between 24-Jun-2014 and 14-Jul-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Overall this was a fabulous safari experience for the 5 of us, three being first time safari goers and two of us being experienced safari travellers. The game viewing is stupendous. The abundance of water from the delta makes for a very different Southern Africa Experience.

Great to see so many Betswanas working in the camps.

Food - we would have like to have had more game on the menu but perhaps this is made more difficult now by the hunting ban in Botswana.

We think that the camps/safari industry in Botswana need to invest in providing WiFi in the camps

Overall we would readily recommend this trip and Expert Africa for organising it - there was not a hitch during the whole trip. Thank you Megan

My Oct 2009 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 3-Oct-2009 and 19-Oct-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Great holiday overall and we were awe struck by the landscape. There are a few things we would do differently such as:

Skip Windhoek
Stay closer to Etosha
Do Twyfelfontein from a different lodge
Do half day tour at Swakopmund

But these are details; it was a great great holiday and we hope to do Fish River Canyon and The Caprivi Strip on our next visit.
