My Oct 2021 trip
Botswana and 1 other country between 30 Oct 2021 and 14 Nov 2021
The stand out thing about safari on a fly-in/out to a private concession (vs fly drive which we have done previously) is that the guides and trackers are dedicated to finding the best vantage point for viewing game and will go off road to do so. We had some amazing sightings which we simply would not have seen if we had been driving ourselves.
The S African leg of the trip was very different from that in the Botswanan bush but still very enjoyable. The strength of the Rand vs GBP made eating out very affordable."

Only slight frustration was the transfer arrangements from the Victoria Falls Hotel to Livingstone Airport. I appreciate that there is no benefit to the transfer operator in "cutting it fine" but it was entirely unnecessary to leave as early as the transfer operator wanted (even after the time was negotiated down). It was a shame (given the length of our trip) as an extra hour or so at VFH would have been much preferable to spending that time waiting at Livingstone airport.
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Very pleased with the service received from all involved - a great break!"
