Travel reviews by Mr M from Stockport

Excellent trip with rewarding sights

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia, South Africa & Zambia between 15-Jun-2017 and 28-Jun-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Second time to Namibia, but managed to surpass previous visit with animals seen, and got some memorable images. Good to self drive providing so much flexibility as to how long you spend at a waterhole, we had well over 1 hour at one observing in the main bull elephants, only two other cars there.

First time in Botswana great time on the Chobe river viewing elephants crossing , and the birds. Spoilt with the number of lions with kills, and the first cubs I had seen albeit bit hidden in the trees.

Zambia provided a fitting finale something completely different, namely Victoria Falls, seen from the air and on foot, fantastic noise of the the water roaring.

The challenge is how to beat this trip?
