Edo's Camp review
We should have been informed that this camp is NOT considered to be accessible in a two wheel drive vehicle. Having said that we did make it up the 7 kilometre road though much to the astonishment of the manager. We had to be escorted out by five guys who could push us if we got stuck in the sand.
The camp informs me that they arrange a pick-up of people in two wheel drive vehicles - if informed. If driving a 4 wheel you should inform your customers of the route that needs to be taken (right fork at entrance) and proceed through the school premises (which is locked at weekends) and that they will need to get someone to unlock the gates to the reserve.
Food was not great - seems like very few people stay at this camp as we had it to ourselves for two days. But at least we saw rhino - even if they were treated like pets.
Rhino Tracking Adventure
Scary drive from the road - had we known the road was so sandy and with sharp stones we would have rung ahead and arranged to be met - they would have been quite happy to do this.
Good food, lovely acommodation, friendly people-learned a lot - the rhino here are magnificent and we seemed to see quite a few
An absolutely brilliant experience - would recommend a visit here to anyone wanting to see rhino.
The waterhole round which our tent was sited was busy all the time - although we went out on drives we could have just stayed there and let the wild life come to us.
Tracking rhino on foot!
The best of the tented camps we visited ~ clean, tidy and just about everything thought of. Overlooked waterhole with plenty of game including eleven rhino. The food was good.
Activities included tracking rhino on foot and visiting a real (not Disneyfied) San village. Managed by a young couple, but she is expecting in April and we wonder what might happen then.
What a great time!!
Edo's was a wonderful experience and we hope to go back in the next few years!!
Izelle is just wonderful - so intuitive and a nuturing person. What a natural, charismatice asst. director and guide!! At first Stephan seemed a little brusque, with fairly poor social skills. But as he relaxed, he IS quite young, he showed great knowledge and caring for Edo's Camp, the local people and animal/bird life.
We ended our trip really appreciating Stephan and his many skills!!! We hope he is given the oportunity to travel outside of Botswana so that he rounds out his (very few) rough edges. He has the making of a very memorable camp director!!
I think Edo's should work on their food; especially the cooking of vegetables and the presentation.
