Fantastic Holiday

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia & Zimbabwe between 23-Feb-2015 and 12-Mar-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Excellent holiday, far exceeded our expectations.

Felt safe throughout the trip. Tranfers at borders ran smoothly as did the car rental return All the staff at the lodges very professional and helpful. On reflections I think we would have rather stayed in slightly larger lodges. This is because sometimes we were the only ones there so lots of the activities were not on offer or to expensive as there was only the two of us. Food throughout was of a very high standard. Also the fact that the pound against the South African Rand is high made it a very good value holiday.!

Talking about a return visit as we headed home!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
We used our credit cards at all the lodges and camps therefore did not need to take large wads of money.. In Kasane where we filled up with petrol, before handing back the car they took any currency, rand, sterling Dollars etc and the rate of exchange was on par with banks. This was great because we then did not have to change money into pula just for the petrol.
