Super Splash Camp

Splash camp is a brand new safari camp. It has a very smart, modern safari feel, which was very much to our liking. The rooms were very beautiful and comfortable, as were the communal areas.

We enjoyed some excellent game viewing safaris. Special sightings included a cheetah, Mr Special, that we followed as obliged us by posing for photo's, a pack of Wild Dogs, and three separate lion sightings.

Splendid setting and stylish rooms

A very attractive, new camp which was well thought-out and stylishly designed. The staff were hard-working and burst into song and dance on several occasions, including the camp's 1st birthday.

Our guide, David, was excellent and enthusiastic, supported by our tracker, Goums. They worked well with the other guides to find as much wildlife for us as possible. We enjoyed our boat trip and sun-downer on the water (and our other sun-downers!).

Not on your wildlife list: we saw an aardwolf, a spring hare, two wild cats and three spotted hyenas on our night drives; also steenbock, tsessebe, reedbuck, side-striped and black-backed jackals, and a verreaux owl during the day. we saw a huge herd of buffalo, which was most impressive.

Splash Camp review

It was a long drive from the airstrip but the game viewing en route to and from camp was good and staff were very flexible in fitting in with timing.

Cabins in camp were widely spaced which meant privacy but a long walk if you were in the farthest cabins.

Outstanding safari at Splash

This camp has everything you could wish for!

Guide (Mr T) and tracker worked very well as a team and were very focused on finding what we were interested in - cats and dogs!

Nocturnal sighting was excellent too (unlike other camps). Highlight was following a pack of 8 wild dogs hunting a buffalo calf and seeing 2 lionesses with 6 cubs feeding on a kudu carcass.

Great stay in splash

We saw some great sightings of Lions including a cute cub and a cheetah but generally didn't seem to be as much game as in Chobe.

Really enjoyed the boat tour and canoes. Are guide could have been friendlier.

Each day a new wonder!

Great profusion and variety of wildlife especially zebra in a great variety of lovely landscapes. Huge variety of bird life. Great waterhole in front of the camp. wild dogs visited the camp and made a kill in front of the waterhole but was at night.Saw a cheetah hunting,stalking and capturing and ostrich. Elephants drinking, playing and grazing right in front of the lodge.

This camp is quite large, and some cabins have limited view of the waterhole and are quite a hike to the dining area. More guests mean that it wasn't always possible to talk to all the guests, so not as intimate and friendly as the other camps we stayed at (Lagoon and Tau Pan). Mokoro experience very controlled, but boat cruise to the lagoon compensated. Modern decor and new cabins lack the luxury feel of thatched roof, dark rich timber and leather furniture, but not here to stay in the room.

The safaris were wonderful.

Excellent Safari at Splash Camp

Splash is a new camp, and it shows. More modern than many we have visited, the camp offers a number of conveniences such as being able to charge electrical devices in your room. One of us has mobility challenges, and the staff could not have been more helpful, finding ways to make it easier to get and out of the vehicle and negotiate steps and ramps within the camp.

The wildlife is fantastic. We were awoken one morning by lions roaring just outside the camp, having stolen a kill from wild dogs. We had a great team in our guide David and tracker KB. Highlights on game drives included seeing a cheetah at full speed catching a baby lechwe; wild dogs; two lionesses with ten cubs; and our first sighting of a side-striped jackal. Numerous species of antelope were abundant, with the baby boom just beginning as the rains are in sight.

The ultimate experience at Splash Camp

Brand new camp with great staff for a great experience, overlooking the waterhole where plenty of game passes along.

Special thanks to all kitchen staff for the delicious food, our birthday and anniversary chocolate cake! Special for us was the dinner in front of camp in the bush, esp the ending, so having coffee at the main area as we had a visitor (elephant)

Also special thanks to the one and only guide Tom and his tracker KB, they tracked wild dogs for us which was highly on our Wishlist. Furthermore they have a good sense of humour and extensive knowledge.

A lot of activities to do, walking safaris, mokoro trip, 'normal' safari, boat rides etc. Not in the list of animals below but seen the Pels Fishing Owl a rare sighting.

And a visit of an huge elephant to our tent while sitting on our balcony he was enjoying his food from the tree next to us and followed his path to the main building scaring other people on their way for the afternoon drive. :)

Great Safari and Splash Camp

Splash Camp exceeded our expectations. Everything about it was outstanding. The habitat was beautiful. Within an hour of landing we saw many elephants, a leopard, hippos, zebras, antelopes and giraffes. Our guide, Gee, and tracker, Luke liked to start a drive by looking for vultures that led us to a recent kill. Then they tracked the culprits (wild dog &, lions generally) usually napping by a watering hole. Then we would go back to the kill (antelopes, zebra and a small elephant) to observe the scavengers (hyenas, jackals, vultures etc). Wow, what an experience! Whenever, they tracked down the predator, Gee would say, "Another kill solved by CSI Splash Camp!"

The camp was just built and so was in perfect condition. It was luxurious for its purpose and well sealed to keep out animals and large insects. We also felt close to the wild world. Wild dogs and lions killed prey near the camp while we were there. We heard a lion outside our accommodation two of three nights there. We saw one while accompanied back to our dwelling. Pretty exciting stuff but we felt safe.

The whole staff was friendly and engaging. They put together a wonderful celebration of Botswana Independence Day that included vibrant singing and dancing as well as festive foods and drink.We hugged several folks when we left.
