Our Botswana Adventure

Botswana and 1 other country between 7 Sep 2017 and 20 Sep 2017

Trip rating: Excellent
"A safari is a unique holiday experience and Botswana an expensive one at that! Because of this expectations were high. Several camps and locations mean complex logisitics. Everything went perfectly to plan and those high expectations were met.

The only downside was one bag went missing on our journey out and was only located at Joburg airport on our final day.

We are grateful to Lucy from Expert Africa for all her efforts in trying to locate the bag as British Airways seemed completely disinterested in helping.

Overall it was a wonderful and memorable holiday."

Lebala Camp

"Lebala Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 10 Sep 2017
"Loved the remoteness and privacy of Lebala. It was great not having other camps/vehicles around our game drives, which made them even more special.

The staff were super friendly and couldn't do enough for us.

Overall, this was our favourite camp."

Khwai Tented Camp

"Khwai Tented Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 13 Sep 2017
"A beautifully positioned camp, with a great outlook. The staff were lovely and we enjoyed our stay here.

Due to the number of camps in the area and therefore the related number of vehicles, some of the game viewing felt more like a safari theme park, certainly compared to what we experienced at Lebala.

It was good to be able able to experience both game drives and mokoro trips from the same camp.

Our guide, Sinka, was very knowledgable and went out of his way to give us varied experiences, including tracking wild dogs."

Pelo Camp

Pelo Camp

"Pelo Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 16 Sep 2017
"A good alternative to the land-based camps as the boat trips were more relaxing than game drives (but less exciting!).

We were there for 3 days and we were a bit surprised that we only had one mokoro trip in that time. With hindsight 2 nights here would probably have sufficed.

We really enjoyed our 'traditional' evening in the boma with the attendant choir."
