Botswana between 1 Nov 2019 and 17 Nov 2019

Trip rating: Excellent
"what an amazing experience. i have been travelling to africa over the past 20 years and this was, by far, the most incredible experience i have had. the accommodation was all exceptional and the travel seamless. everything to make the trip easy was thought of.

the itinerary was exceptional, allowing us to see different aspects of botswana. we wouldn't have missed any of it. each was different with its own charm. the guides were all very professional and knowledgable. we experienced so much in terms of both flora and fauna.

thanks to tracy at expert africa for making everything so easy.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

no. everything was perfect."

Savute Safari Lodge

Savute Safari Lodge

"exciting, interesting, and full of fun"

2 nights Arrived 4 Nov 2019
"this was the first stop on our botswana adventure. we jumped off the plane onto a game drive and were instantly captivated. our guide, coco, was incredible, explaining the environment and the wildlife. a highlight was a short walk to view rock paintings, thousands of years old. and, after coming to africa for 20 years, i saw my first leopard on the first game drive. incredible.

the camp itself was well designed and extremely comfortable. our "tent" was wonderful, with all the comforts one could wish for. food was excellent, service impecable, and everyone friendly and helpful. in short, a perfect beginning."

Machaba Camp

Machaba Camp

"laid back fun"

3 nights Arrived 6 Nov 2019
"we loved machaba camp. the atmosphere was relaxed and fun with great facilities and service. it was like being part of a big family. loved our tent which enabled us to see all around us and to hear the night noises with no walls in the way. camping should always be like this. food was excellent and plentiful.

our guide, moreri, was terrific and ensured we had an unforgettable experience. a wild ride to spot a leopard before it disappeared into the bush was successful and we tracked him as he strolled, unconcerned, into a brush area where he settled down for a nap. thrilling. we saw a wide variety of wildlife and learned about the area and the small village nearby.

an unforgettable experience."

Splash Camp

Splash Camp

"the best for game viewing"

3 nights Arrived 9 Nov 2019
"splash was our least favorite camp. the chalets were totally enclosed and not as pleasant as tent facilities. that said, they were comfortable. we would have preferred a different design. however, the camp was well run and the facilities and food excellent.

this camp had a more regimented feel than the previous ones. we were told the single, long dining table was so guests would mix with and chat with other guests. however, we were directed to seating with the same people who we travelled with during the day, so no opportunity for real mixing.

our guide was excellent but not the same laid back temperment of our other guides. we did, however, see more at this camp than any of the others. also the fact we could travel off road meant we could follow game into the bush. exciting."

Tau Pan Camp

Tau Pan Camp

"brown with a touch of green"

3 nights Arrived 12 Nov 2019
"definitely our favorite camp. an amazing view from our chalet, down to a water hole and beyond. when we arrived, the rains had just begun and you could instantly see a change in the environment. this experience was more about the environment and the little things rather than big game. we identified 40 species of birds...most of our previous guides did not emphasize that aspect. vasco was a font of knowledge. a leopard tortoise, 2 deadly snakes, and a double rainbow made this a completely different experience.

the camp itself was delightful, well equipped and great food and service. but it was the all day trip to a distant pan and an interpretative walk with a bushman/san guide which were the most memorable experiences. cannot say enough good things about this fabulous camp which rounded out our experiences in botswana. unfortunately this camp was seemingly not as popular as those in the delta. however, for us and those with whom we shared the experience, it was the best."
