"Little Kwara review"

3 nights Arrived 16 Dec 2017
"Had a wonderful three-night stay at Little Kwara as the first of two safari camps we visited in Botswana. Staff was great, very warm and welcoming, and provided excellent service. The camp is small and intimate, with a capacity of 18 people, so you get the other the other travelers well. My wife and I were traveling on our honeymoon and on the last night they prepared a wonderful surprise private dinner for us in our cabin -- really exceptional and personalized service.

Our guide (Josiah) and tracker (KP) were both excellent. Both grew up in the Delta and shared lots of local knowledge on the animals and geography. One of the biggest highlights of Little Kwara is the ability to off-road, and Josiah was never shy about driving through thick brush to track cheetah, wild dogs, etc. Our trip was during the green season but we saw nearly all the animals I expected to see (except leopard) and had no rain at all.

Overall I'd recommend Little Kwara very highly if you're considering a trip to the Delta!"

Tau Pan Camp

Tau Pan Camp

"Tau Pan Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 19 Dec 2017
"Tau Pan was the second of two camps we visited in Botswana and really exceeded my expectations! We came from a camp in the Delta, and because Tau Pan is a more permanent structure the rooms and facilities are a bit nicer. Lodging is very spacious and the views from the front deck are incredible. The food was very good, and the staff was exceptional. On our last night they performed a wonderful number of songs and dances that really made our visit special.

We had a similarly positive experience with our guide (Matt) and tracker (G) -- both were experts and gave us a great safari experience. You can't off-road in Tau Pan, so game drives are a bit more of a patient waiting game, but in some ways that made it even more exciting to see game. Thanks to Matt's great guiding, we had near daily encounters with a pack of three cheetahs and a beautiful black-maned lion, as well as many other great sightings.

Another highlight is the bushman's walk, led by local San bushmen who also work at Tau Pan as trackers. If you visit, this should not be missed. The hunting and survival tactics the bushmen showed us were incredible to witness, and a really special treat in addition to the game drives."
