Wonderful. Not cheap but worth every penny

Botswana between 2 Aug 2018 and 20 Aug 2018

Trip rating: Excellent
"I would really recommend this holiday. Away from all pressures and - as one of the other guests put it - you pay to see the animals and the vegetation on your own. This is a tailor-made experience, away from the crowds of people you find in other safari holidays. You can watch a leopard quietly feeding with no other truck around. This is impossible in most game reserves. In a word: outstanding."

"Thamalakane River Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 3 Aug 2018
"It was an OK parking place to stay for a night before the real holiday began. But it feels a bit tired and needs to re-think its offer. Some of the staff were rather off-hand"

Lebala Camp

Lebala Camp

"Lebala Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 4 Aug 2018
"Wonderful. Just what we hoped for. As in other of the resorts, the guides were excellent and the animals were prolific. The food is great - and never seems to stop and the rooms are very comfortable. An outstanding experience.

Two minor issues: I think the South African wines (most of which I know well) are at the bottom of the acceptable range. I found one in a SA supermarket for R53. I think you could do better. Secondly, I hate tipping at these resorts. I don't like to spend my time with the nagging thought of what would be fair. I would far rather have the sum included in the cost and a 'no-tipping' policy brought in."

Splash Camp

Splash Camp

"Splash Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 6 Aug 2018
"As with the other resorts, Splash was outstanding - and newly opened. We really liked it.

One small point: I had to buy some sun-screen. The price ($24) was twice what it should have been. And when I asked whether I could pay by card the exchange rate was pretty poor and I was told a 3% addition would be added. This is not generous and not the way I expect to be treated in such a high-cost resort."

Tau Pan Camp

Tau Pan Camp

"Tau Pan Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 9 Aug 2018
"Very different from the Okovango camps but an excellent comparitor. The guides were particulary good - they knew everything we asked about. Only one point: the temperature fell to 2 degrees in the morning. Our room had no windows and the cold air cascaded over our bed. We were really cold at night and didn't sleep well. But otherwise it was outstanding. I would certainly recommend it."
