Travel reviews by Mr J from Elgin


Cape Town, Okavanga, Chobe & Vic Falls

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zimbabwe between 12-Sep-2017 and 20-Sep-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We got what we asked for: the 'Out of Africa' experience, with an interesting contrast between private and public reserves, Delta and Chobe River, without a strong emphasis on the big five. The time of year recommended by Expert Africa was exactly right for us.
We loved the whole experience of the camps. Pom Pom is beautifully situated on the edge of a loagoon and we had the campfire, the continuous nighttime sound of the crickets and frogs, baboons and jackals with an occasional lions roar. Then Chobe Under Canvas and the wide open vistas of the Chobe with river, grassland and a multitude of animals.
Botswana lived up to our expectations and the game viewing was excellent. We could not realistically have asked for more from Expert Africa and the local operators, the organisation was faultless and the whole trip was great.
