Botswana and 1 other country between 29 Oct 2013 and 12 Nov 2013

Trip rating: Excellent
"All transfers and flights worked like clockwork. Very impressed with Expert Africa's arrangements from start to finish. Full information given at all times and really good advice.

We love Kwando camps in particular although the best game viewing was at Sandibe. Saskia Adye was superb in helping us plan our trip and Maruska took over the reins very efficiently in the final stages.

We would certainly recommend expert Africa to anybody."

Sandibe Safari Lodge

Sandibe Safari Lodge

"Sandibe Safari Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 30 Oct 2013
"We had fantastic game viewing, best ever and even saw some smaller nocturnal animals such as porcupine, spring hare, bat eared foxes so very lucky. We did not like being Put at separate tables for meals as we much prefer communal dining so that one can exchange stories about the day with other guests.

Lodge was well managed by Skipper, meals were good and the room was comfortable. The lodge will close at end of 2013 for complete refurb so obviously some parts are looking a bit tired. Interesting to see the new camp."

Lagoon Camp

Lagoon Camp

"Lagoon Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 5 Nov 2013
"We love the long dining tables at Lagoon and Lebala and we made friends with other guests from different countries which added to our holiday fun. Food was often cold as burners went out and this was not noticed. Management not so good.

We had to wait 2 hours on arrival before our tent was ready and this was mismanaged as the vacating guests should have been given a set time to vacate rooms. Otherwise all was fine.

We loved Carlos playing guitar and singing round the campfire at night."

The Elephant Camp

The Elephant Camp

"The Elephant Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 8 Nov 2013
"Camp too far out of town and transfers sometimes unreliable. We had to wait 55 minutes for a return to camp.

Food was poor generally, very disappointing dinners although lunches were good. We enjoyed the time to rest and swimming pool was the highlight for me. Very little game to see from the camp perhaps due to the time of year.

Scott and Bernie were friendly and helpful. Saw very little of manager Jonathan, staff not as good as in Botswana."
