March 2016 trip

Botswana and 1 other country between 6 Mar 2016 and 16 Mar 2016

Trip rating: Excellent
"The combination of the friendly staffs and spirit of Africa and just being in the safari mode was wonderful and trumps all the small quibbles.

Seeing a leopard mother and her cub playing a small distance away and seeing a cheetah close up in the wild are hard experiences to match. Thus, we had a fabulous experience overall.

If the ceiling fans can be added at Little Kwara and the flights can be adjusted to take vacationers directly to their spots (instead of flying them more than 90 minutes out of the way), the review could have been even more positive."

Little Kwara

Little Kwara

"Little Kwara charms"

3 nights Arrived 9 Mar 2016
"Little Kwara has a lovely setting and the small number of cabins makes it feel cozy and comfortable at all times. And the staff was always welcoming and helpful. And the food was very good. And most importantly, the off road and night time drives made the safaris/game drives and boat drives exceptional.

The only negative is that the cabins do NOT have ceiling fans and so during the afternoon hours when you want to rest and during the steamy nights, the cabins were quite humid and uncomfortable. For a camp of this caliber and expense, the cabins should all have ceiling fans (I am not talking air conditioners but only ceiling fans). It would go a long way to making the stay much more enjoyable."

Tau Pan Camp

Tau Pan Camp

"Tau Pan and new vistas"

3 nights Arrived 12 Mar 2016
"The place was lovely and staff was wonderful.

The game drives, however, require you to drive for hours to see much in the way of animals. There is the occasional jackal and various antelope, but that is not much for hours of driving. And we were there at the end of their summer when the animals in the Pans should be more easily observed (or so we had read).

When we took the long drive to Deception Valley (only available in 8 hour full day drives) we did see the Kalahari lions which were amazing and some bat eared foxes (besides the various antelopes), but those long drives can challenge the spirit of a game seeker."
