Overall Great Trip

Botswana and 1 other country between 12 Jun 2014 and 25 Jun 2014

Trip rating: Excellent
"If I had lots of money, I would not do the same vendor (both Kwando camps) to experience something different; however, overall it was a great trip. Arrangements were flawless and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Maruska was great to deal with as a planner."

Protea Hotel Fire & Ice

"Cute Hotel"

2 nights Arrived 12 Jun 2014
"Cute hotel in a nice location. Rooms were very "Hollywood." Service was a little slow in the bar area and the music they played in the bar area was too loud. I would recommend the hotel. Staff was prompt in responding to our request for a second luggage rack."

Camp Kalahari

Camp Kalahari

"Meerkats Rule!"

3 nights Arrived 14 Jun 2014
"The staff at the camp was great, especially our guide Bones. The food was very good. Enjoyed the ATV quad ride and Bones made an effort to heighten the experience with our "flying on the Pans." We especially enjoyed the Meerkats which were a wonderful experience.

While we had been warned in advance about the "surprise" night on the Pans by Expert Africa, I still think the camp should tell people in advance. I wear contact lenses and because there was no advisement on which night this surprise would occur, I could not plan. Same holds true as I, and others we were traveling with, take medication and we had no time to prepare to take it with us. For us these reasons and the cold, we opted not to participate. For others who don't have these issues, I think it would be a great experience."

"Beautiful Rooms!"

3 nights Arrived 17 Jun 2014
"On the Kwando River which we very much enjoyed. The rooms were beautiful and if only I had taken advantage of that bathtub! Loved the fact the baboons wandered through the camp.

Again, friendly staff and enjoyed our stay."

"Lions!"

3 nights Arrived 20 Jun 2014
"A lot of different activities here which we enjoyed. Again staff was great.

Food was good, but even though the camp asked about dietary restrictions they didn't make any accommodation for one person's allergy to tomatoes."

"Nice Lodge"

2 nights Arrived 23 Jun 2014
"The lodge is within a short walk to the Falls which is a plus for staying here. The grounds are beautiful.

There was no directory in the rooms. We wanted a light snack for room service and in order to do so had to walk to the restaurant to review the menu to order. Seemed to defeat the purpose of room service. Even then the menu posted in front of the restaurant was not current. They had to run back and get "the current version.""
