Another exceptional trip to Botswana

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 5-Sep-2016 and 17-Sep-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Each time we return we can't believe it can get any better but it does.

Whilst we did not see so many of some of the big cats we saw things which we have never seen before, such as a lion climbing a tree as well as a cheetah climbing a tree. We have never seen so many large herds of elephants. The numbers were exceptionally large.

We also had excellent sightings of various wild dog packs, some with pups as well as some of the smaller mammals, such as a bushbaby and a honey badger trying to dig out a mouse. What makes Kwando camps special is that they use a tracker as well as a guide and seeing them work together is fascinating, adding an extra dimension to the experience.

For many reasons it was a holiday to remember.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No, your brochure and website have a lot of helpful information and your staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. They are able to fill in any information gaps and knowing the various camps are able to advise on the best options.

We are very happy with the service we have received and would certainly recommend Expert Africa.

Our February 2014 trip to Botswana

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 15-Feb-2014 and 1-Mar-2014 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

An excellent and very enjoyable trip. Everything was extremely well organised and went without any hitches. Mack Air was efficient and always arrived on time, the only scary moment being on our last flight to Maun when the pilot had to take very rapid avoiding action to prevent us from hitting a stork flying at 4,500 ft! All the Guides were attuned to the requirements of photographers and did their utmost to position their vehicles in the best position. The green season is a wonderful time to go but made their jobs all the harder so their efforts were very much appreciated.
