My Apr 2016 trip

Botswana and 1 other country between 24 Apr 2016 and 2 May 2016

Trip rating: Excellent
"An amazing safari experience. Surpassed all expectations.

The expanse of the Botswana wilderness and the African sky is impressive as were the number and variety of wildlife.

An experience of a lifetime and would go back for more!"

Tubu Tree Camp

Tubu Tree Camp

"Tube Tree Terrific"

3 nights Arrived 24 Apr 2016
"Well situated on an island although there was yet little water. Comfortable accommodations and surroundings with a great open bar and bartender - Daniel.

TK, our guide, was an expert tracker and involved us in the chase - we spent an entire morning tracking lion or leopard without finding any but it didn't matter because he had us engaged in the experience. But we did still see 4 of the Big Five and TK always positioned the Land Rover so that we could all get a camera shot and the best light. Simply an outstanding experience.

An observation - not sure what to do with it - white expat camp management and black staff. Is this what Botswana is about?"

Chitabe Camp

Chitabe Camp

"Chitabe Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 27 Apr 2016
"Beautiful camp. Luxurious accommodations with attention to detail in the decor. Entirely black management and staff that enhanced the Botswana experience.

Dry camp that made it more difficult to have an off-road experience because we had to drive over dead trees. But when we did - it was expertly handled by our driver and guide. He went out of the way to bring us to the hyena den and to find the wild dogs over difficult terrain.

But our guide did not engage us - the fact that I forget his name is evidence to this - although clearly an expert he did not include us when he spotted tracks, he habitually missed sunset when he finally stopped for drinks and when our vehicle would not start when we were parked by the hyena den he did not communicate this to us although we all noticed it."

"Comfortable accommodation in the centre of Victoria Falls. A close walk to everything.
