My Mar 2012 trip

Botswana and 1 other country between 23 Mar 2012 and 6 Apr 2012

Trip rating: Good
"it could have been perfect. but it wasnt quite
delayed baggage didn't help but that was BA and Air Botswana mixup but five days late ! luckily I had a spare T shirt and bought a hat at Maun.
stolen phone,...at Maun airport in jacket pocket.
baggage hold not checked at Little Kwara strip.. seats not checked either before take off,.. caused me distress and a lot of work for Chan Gu and other staff.. shame really.
in order.. we loved Footsteps , we really liked Little Kwara , Bushbuck River lodge was agood location with helpful cheerful owner..and good value, delicious food there.. Siankaba was a lovely place to end our safari and get ready to leave...the views across the river and the staff were so freindly.. evening cruise is still remembered.

Thanks Maruska for helping to put a good package together"

Little Kwara

"Little Kwara review"

3 nights Arrived 28 Mar 2012
"to follow Footsteps it had to be good and it was !
great game drives both Arnoldo and Mike were great spotters and trackers.
we liked the fact that it was small and intimate location very special...again we would like to return
we loved the view from our tent and saw elephant , hippo from our room..
neither of us wanted to leave..
Tabona deserves a special mention...a special member of staff."
