"Little Sable review"

4 nights Arrived 24 Jun 2024
"We really enjoyed Little Sable. The people there were great, they tried VERY hard to make our stay great. Our guide, Molls, was terrific, and the chefs tried hard to please us which was not easy! The game drives were great, very informative, and the location is beautiful. The walking safaris were incredible. We took a Mokoro ride which was peaceful and beautiful. The sunsets were gorgeous and the food was excellent. Wild dogs ran through our camp which was incredible. There is a pool which is cold. The tents are nice and you feel like you are really in the bush. It was quite cold here, a bit warmer than Zimbabwe but still cold, and our showers did not have hot enough water or enough water pressure. At times it was very windy and then it was very loud in our tents which made it hard to sleep. They also have helicopters here which are noisy and disturb the peace."

"Little Sable review"

2 nights Arrived 6 Jun 2024
"Beautiful camp with seriously high-spec tents and a modern vibe. The outdoor shower was really nice. There is wifi in the tents and the common parts, which some guests will no doubt love, but we were hoping to disconnect during our trip, and having to log on to register on arrival meant that unwanted emails and notifications popped up on our devices. Niche criticism, we know (!)

Little Sable is unfenced, so we had elephants and hippos coming right up to the boardwalk and the campfire in the evenings, which was incredible to watch. The food was outrageous and we got to sample some delicious Botswana fare like Seswaa, which was great as most of the food is tailored to European/American palates so it was good to eat a bit of local grub.

Our guide was Johnson, who was quietly passionate and extremely knowledgeable... it was like riding in a jeep with a nature encyclopaedia. It was lovely having someone who so obviously has such huge love for the wildlife and the environment. We had fantastic wildlife sightings - the pack of wild dogs on a kill was a particular highlight, as was the bull elephant who joined us for a sundowner - and the tea and coffee with biscuits on the morning game drive was a great little touch too.

There was no tea & coffee on wake-up, which we had in all our other camps on the trip. The tents are also perhaps a touch too close together as we could hear neighbouring guests on both sides quite clearly in the quiet hours.

Only slight issue was our transfer to Skybeds, which seemed like the camp staff were confused about or didn't communicate very well. We were given our helicopter take-off time, which other guests - who were not even told their take-off time - ended up grabbing, which meant they took our heli and we got theirs an hour later. Not a big deal and we all got there in the end but it was all a bit scatty." See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia

"Little Sable review"

2 nights Arrived 23 Mar 2022
"We spent 2 nights at Little Sable previously known as Jackal & Hide under the former Pangolin Management.

The camp is overlooking a large plain which during our stay in March was filled with water. We were pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the new tents, the pool and the look out area. Our guide Molls did a terrific job navigating us through high grass and high water levels.

Spotted a leopard, lions with cubs, and an African wildcat. Food was good, but not outstanding, while the wine & beverage selection deserves improvement. Compared to our previous visit, we felt that the camp lost some of its charm under its current management. Also expect some vehicle traffic as Natural Selection operates a number of sister camps in this area." See all these reviews: 8n in Botswana
