"Lovely holiday mixed with poor food"

2 nights Arrived 29 Apr 2019
"We travelled as a party of 8 and had a great time overall. The safari experiences were wonderful and we really enjoyed the close encounters with the elephants. The camp itself was friendly and the staff really tried hard to make our stay very welcome.

Our only criticism was the food - the quality was sub-standard and unfortunately, as our group were last to eat after arriving a little late at meal times, there was not enough food or choices of food left for us. One evening most of the food was finished leaving some of our party little food to eat. Breakfast the next day again had no fruit salad leftover and little other choice on offer and again on our second evening at the camp, the food was poor and most dishes were finished when we arrived. We did challenge the staff and all they could say was that there was no other food available.

Overall we had a great stay but were entirely unhappy with the food quality and availability of choice and sufficient food.

"Botswana was in the middle of a heatwave"

2 nights Arrived 13 Nov 2018
"Hyena Pan was lovely. Botswana was in the middle of a heatwave that made the tents impossible to be in but thank God for the swimming pool!

Con- Far from game viewing, not sure it was worth it but we got to see wild dogs! All of our drives were outside of the private reserve so quite long to get to and from.

Pro- The staff was amazing and went out of their way to accomodate our requests. We had Russel who was the most amazing guide and really added to our trip. We do hope to keep in touch with him.

Con/ Pro- I think it would have been great if Expert Africa asked if we wanted a private or group safari. This was our first group safari so the time table was dictated to us. That being said we met amazing people, obnoxious people, and hilarious people we otherwise would not have met. Tons of stories to tell :)

Pro- The watering hold at hyena pan bringing the elephants up close and personal.

Pro- We felt away from it all which was nice." See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana

"Many Elephants at Hyena Pan"

3 nights Arrived 4 Oct 2018
"The location is good. Our safaris were a bit mixed up. We started with one driver (we were alone) that was not our as good as we would hope. Then we changed to another group and the driver was excellent and enjoyed the other guests. Then were transferred to another another truck for our trip to the sky camp which we did the same stop at the elephant dugout which we had previously done. We waited in the truck but were told it would be until sunset (several hours) so we requested to be taken to sky camp. We were taken but with consternation. Could have been smoother, felt like we were getting whipped around a bit. Sky Camp was fun. " See all these reviews: 7n in Botswana

"A relaxing camp - Hyena Pan"

2 nights Arrived 2 Aug 2018
"We had a lovely time here. The elephants were close by when we arrived even blocking our way to our tent. They were also frequent visitors to the camp both in the daylight and in the night. A hippo was also seen wallowing in the water too but he stayed submerged. We also saw zebra, buffalo,a lion and some wild dogs.

We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere here as the staff were attentive without hovering unnecessarily.

Our guides were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It is good when the guides remember to speak to guests when the vehicle is stopped rather than when the vehicle is moving. It would have been good to have seen the hide too. " See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana; 3n in Zambia; 1n in South Africa

"Great wildlife camp in Okavango"

2 nights Arrived 2 Aug 2018
"Plenty of wildlife here, particularly around the camp waterhole. Friendly, helpful staff. This a drier area of the outer Okavango Delta, but well worthwhile." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana; 3n in Zambia; 1n in South Africa
