Botswana safari and Victoria Falls

Botswana and 1 other country between 26 May 2015 and 5 Jun 2015

Trip rating: Excellent
"Once in a lifetime trip! Botswana was beautiful, people were friendly, and game viewing was out of this world. We saw more animals than we ever thought we would see. The private game reserves are worth the extra cost because you can get closer to the animals. The guides were extremely knowledgable and taught us a lot. Tracking skills were outstanding. The lodges were all beautiful and great with conservation efforts. There were only a few kinks in our trip. Kwara camp staff were lacking people skills and clearly weren't happy to be there. Also, on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls we were harassed by some local street sellers and threatened. Though everyone else in Zimbabwe were very friendly so we didn't let this ruin our experience. I would recommend local guides or tourism police for going out in public next time. Overall this trip was outstanding, we are already talking about going back some day!"

Kwara Camp

"Great game viewing"

3 nights Arrived 2 Jun 2015
"Game viewing was outstanding. Rooms are rustic but that is what we liked about the camp. Staff was just average. We felt like they didn't want to be there and no one went out of their way to be friendly. We also had other couples from both Kwara and little Kwara comment about the staff not being up to par compared to other camps. We also heard some of the workers at the camp talking about guests behind their backs. We didn't mind as much because we were there for the game experience which was fantastic. Lots of activities to choose from."
