Lodges stayed in
My Sep 2022 trip
Botswana and 1 other country between 8 Sep 2022 and 24 Sep 2022
This was a delayed golden wedding trip booked three years ago. Excellent in every respect--locations, game viewing and beach resort."
Gomoti Plains Camp
"Gomoti Plains Camp review"
"Little Vumbura review"
Guiding was excellent and the staff were welcoming and very capable.
A really good atmosphere, with the added bonus of water activities, especially mokoros."
Sandibe Safari Lodge
"Sandibe Safari Lodge review"
Beautiful location and great room. Some delightful extras such as a bottle of champagne in the bush at sundown to celebrate our anniversary.
Our only reservation was that the GM (white South African) seemed to be out of touch with guests-did he feel we were there for his benefit?"
"The Residence review"
A little over-ornate for our taste"
Lodge not featured by Expert Africa
"Azura Benguerra review"
Great location and great service and food.
The staff were very helpful in helping us overcome some of our concerns about the water activities.
Altogether just delightful."
Brilliant and unforgettable trip.
Kenya and 1 other country between 18 Sep 2014 and 28 Sep 2014
"Brilliant safari and great staff"
We were particularly pleased to be allocated a guide and vehicle for the whole period on an exclusive basis. Our guide (Benjamin) was excellent"
Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge
"Excellent base for seeing Gorillas"
However, we felt that the Lodge was in need of a make-over in the near future if it is to continue to command a premium price. It looked a bit tired."
My Sep 2013 trip
Namibia between 9 Sep 2013 and 27 Sep 2013
Tracy put together a great itinerary which responded to our desires."

We enjoyed the trip to Twyfelfontein, which was well led. The game drive to see elephants was excellent"

A beautiful camp, but the attitude of some of the staff was questionable. They seemed to be doing us a favour and need a course on customer focus."
