"This is likely our last safari and was a great way to end what has been a passion of ours for 30 years.

We enjoyed new places ( Namibia and Tanzania) , saw incredible sights ( especially the Crater and the migration) , ate wonderful food and met many wonderful people"

4 nights Arrived 15 Mar 2012
"Guide was Dutch Kisale-very knowledgeable, knows animals and especially birds well- a photographer himself so knows how to position vehicle for best photos. Wife ran out of flash for camera, Dutch downloaded pics onto flash drive of his so she could finish the trip and we mailed his back to him-saved the trip! Thanks Dutch! Loved the camp, tents were delightful , food terrific and people as at Tau Pan were incredibly nice. Lots of great game viewing!"

Lloyd Wilmot's Mobile Camp, Botswana (this camp has since closed)

"Lloyd Wilmot's Mobile Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 19 Mar 2012
"Very different experience from fixed camp to be sure but our 4 days were totally delightful, even the bucket showers! Lloyd Wilmot has a vast knowledge of the bush and animals and is a very warm and inviting host. Was assisted by friend Janet who added a feminine touch that was very much appreciated. Would love to go back during high season!"
