My Nov 2017 trip
Botswana between 15 Nov 2017 and 29 Nov 2017
November seems to be great value we missed heavy rains (One torrential downpour on each trip) and saw most animals at nearly every camp. We met some great people both staff and guests that we will always remember fondly.
Our "once in a lifetime" trip turned into "Twice in a lifetime" and who knows................
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
We chose in advance to deal with Megan as she was very helpful when we researched our first trip in 2014. We ultimately used a different company but remembered Megans advice and suggestions. Pricing was very close this time around although one thing that hurts us is the surcharge on credit cards. We're not used to that in North America. Expert Africa was higher priced by almost exactly the 2% but we really did want to deal with Megan and were very happy with both her patience as we made decisions and the overall package she helped us put together. We are already recommending Megan to friends."
We are thrilled that these travellers so enjoyed their return visit to Botswana, and that the weather cooperated! November is always a little bit of a lottery in terms of what one might expect from the weather and thus the game viewing - hence the lower prices than Jun/Jul-Oct - but we're delighted that their gamble paid off and the game viewing was so good.
On a practical note, we're delighted to be able to advise that from January 1st, 2018 we will be dropping the 2% charge for any credit card payments made. We hope this will help make us even easier to book for our travellers from North America, where such supplements are not usual.
