Great Safari and wildlife experience

Trip rating: Excellent
"Very enjoyable we would like to return to Botswana."

Tau Pan Camp

Tau Pan Camp

"Great experience of Kalahari"

3 nights Arrived 24 Mar 2018
"A great setting with many interesting species to see - particular favourites - the bat-eared foxes and a cheetah.
Guide (Alex) was very knowledgeable and excellent at getting quickly to interesting sightings as events developed - but perhaps a little quiet. Our tracker, G, was very sharp and keen to share his knowledge of the bush/animal behaviour.

Our only issue was being told that a morning game drive would finish early as we had to take two guests to the airstrip. We have never experienced having a game drive interrupted in this way. (We were told no other vehicles were available.) We said we were not happy with this and the guide suggested we could make up the time after the drop off, which we accepted. So the issue was resolved. Fortunately it did not interrupt a particularly special wildlife encounter, but had it done so this would have been totally unacceptable - also see comments later."

Nxai Pan Camp

Nxai Pan Camp

"A zebra fest at Naxi Pan"

3 nights Arrived 27 Mar 2018
"Great sightings of thousands of zebra, the beautiful oryx and the local lion pride. As at Tau Pan, a good variety of birds. Our guide Elliot was surprised so many elephants came into camp - some wonderful sightings. Much enjoyed the visit to Baines Bao Bab Trees and seeing the water filled pans and a different landscape. Elliot and our tracker Shoes took things more slowly but always found what was there to see. The star gazing evening was very interesting.

Again there was an issue of a game being interrupted by taking clients to the air strip. However it was resolved by an offer to join a couple who had just arrived."

"Fantastic tracking at Little Kwara"

4 nights Arrived 30 Mar 2018
"Great sightings of cheetah on several occasions (including mating!) and lions on zebra kill. Some really wonderful tracking by our guide G, and tracker, Luke, who manged to locate a group of three wild dogs.

We also experienced the excellent tracking skills of guide, Rogers, and tracker Mike. This was again the result of swopping vehicles and joining another group for a day, to avoid going to the air strip and interrupting our game drive."
