Ngare Serian

Ngare Serian

"Ngare Serian review"

3 nights Arrived 9 Sep 2018
"Small intimate camp in great location on bank of the Mara river.

Spacious comfortable tents on raised decking. Very friendly/efficiently run with variety of activities offered - night in the treehouse recommended.

Lovely food in a communal dining setting. Private vehicle with guide and tracker a definite plus point.

Copious game to see within the extensive conservancy. Morning game drives with breakfast in the bush a highlight."

Safari in Maasai Mara National Reserve

Stayed in the Mara North Conservancy and didn’t go into the National Park as the next stage of our trip was to the Serengeti.

Alex Walker's Serian Serengeti

Alex Walker's Serian Serengeti

"Alex Walker's Serian Serengeti review"

4 nights Arrived 12 Sep 2018
"Small tented camp with a classic ‘Out of Africa’ feel to it, a few km from the Mara river. Comfortable tents - bucket shower easy to get the hang of and more than adequate.

Very friendly/efficiently run with plenty of activities- morning balloon safari over the Mara river highly recommended. Lovely food in a communal dining setting.

Private vehicle with guide and tracker a definite plus point - if you don’t feel like waiting hours for the wildebeest to cross the river you can just go and see something else.

Bush breakfast during the morning game drives a highlight."

Balloon Safari over the Serengeti

Balloon Safari over the Serengeti

"Balloon Safari over the Serengeti review"

13 Sep 2018 • Morning excursion

Spectacular and peaceful way to see game as the sun rises over the Serengeti.

Drift low over the Mara river for about an hour before landing a having a bush breakfast by the river.

Requires early morning start but well worth it.

"Entamanu Ngorongoro review"

2 nights Arrived 16 Sep 2018
"Takes a bit of getting to, particularly the final bumpy hour and a half around the crater rim but worth it when you get there.

Large comfortable rooms with great view. Friendly and efficiently run with plenty of activities offered.

Lovely food in a communal dining setting."

1 night Arrived 18 Sep 2018
"Great place to finish off safari holiday and relax prior to return flight home.

10 very comfortable rooms - 5 along valley floor and 5 up on the top of the valley slope. Plenty of activities on offer - we chose to just chill out before our flight home.

45 min drive to airport."

Okavango delta Aug 2014

Botswana between 24 Aug 2014 and 1 Sep 2014

Trip rating: Excellent
"Our third safari trip to Botswana so high expectations and all were met or exceeded."

Duba Plains Camp

Duba Plains Camp

"Another great stay at Duba"

5 nights Arrived 24 Aug 2014
"Our second time there and even better than the first.

Always a warm welcome and very friendly staff who seem capable and willing to accomodate any specific requests. Food is outstanding and a reason to go on its own. Very high quality guiding and whilst the variety of game is more limited than other camps there is always something unexpected to observe.

The native lion prides are a bit disjointed at the current time so although the lion buffalo interaction still occurs it is less consistent than previously. Alternative activities such as boat trip/fishing are well worth undertaking. Needless to say we will return."

Little Kwara

Little Kwara

"Loved Little Kwara"

3 nights Arrived 29 Aug 2014
"A small camp with an intimate feel to it. Friendly welcoming staff. Kwando has a rather formulaic approach to the daily activities but it seems to work vey well.

Huge variety of game with the current star attraction the wild dogs and their puppies. Heavy emphasis on game tracking and fascinating to watch the interaction between the guide and the tracker which is not a feature in most Botswana camps. Boat trip to the heronry well worth it - even if not an avid bird fan then go for the sunset. Mokoro trip very relaxing (even with the hippos) and informative.

A nice time of year to visit - a bit chilly first thing in the morning but not too hot during the day."
