My Oct 2016 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia & Zambia between 14-Oct-2016 and 28-Oct-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

having been on many other safaris can safely say this was right up there with those costing much more
the wildlife has been stunning & if your happy to self drive this is for you
would recommend without question

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

do not talk down the government camps in etosha as they are the best if you want instant access to the park & have fantastic water holes

south tanzania

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 2-Aug-2011 and 10-Aug-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

apart from land rover overcrowding at mdonya the trip was very good

i do feel the information provided should be clear around the scarcity of the leopard/cheetah/wild dogs in the parks as had we not seen these on our previous african trips this would have been a major disappointment

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

ensure that the specific trip goal eg leopard opportunities is fully understood

vic falls & botswana safari

On this trip, I visited Botswana, South Africa & Zambia between 2-Apr-2010 and 13-Apr-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

outstanding trip - botswana has more than lived up to expectations and compares very favourably to other safari's i have been on (south africa/kenya)

the game is superb and the camps/staff outstanding

if going to victoria falls it is more than worthwhile upgrading to royal livingstone

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

as mentioned if staying over in joburg ensure stay is in an onsight airport hotel
