My May 2019 trip

Botswana between 25 May 2019 and 5 Jun 2019

Trip rating: Excellent
"Trip was absolutely fabulous. We have spent a lot of time in Southern Africa and the game tracking and viewing on this trip was spectacular.

The evenings and the morning game drives were much colder than we had anticipated, especially in the Kalahari Desert, so go prepared with layers of very warm clothes."

Tau Pan Camp

Tau Pan Camp

"Tau Pan Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 25 May 2019
"Our first camp which was a good thing since there wasn't a lot of game to be seen on the pan.

Plus it was freezing cold on the game drives, much colder than we had anticipated and colder than any of the other camps. But we were well-supplied with blankets and bush-babies and deserts are cold at night!

We hit pay-dirt on our first outing, seeing a lion kill at the water-hole, and the lions stayed for a couple of days so we had lots of excitement. Also found a leopard which was brilliant."

Lagoon Camp

Lagoon Camp

"Lagoon Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 28 May 2019
"This was our favourite camp because of its location right on the river with hippo coming and going, as well as other animals coming to drink. Plenty of game but still needed to have a skilled tracker to find it. We really liked the tracking experience.

Also liked the the Kwando model of having a guide and a tracker for each truck. This was especially important for the night drives which were rather uninteresting when there was only one guide/driver searching for night-time beasts. Also Kwando camps were private concessions allowing off-road exploration and a maximum of 3 trucks per 'action site' so there was never overcrowding of the tourists or by the tourists."

Splash Camp

Splash Camp

"Splash Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 30 May 2019
"It was a long drive from the airstrip but the game viewing en route to and from camp was good and staff were very flexible in fitting in with timing.

Cabins in camp were widely spaced which meant privacy but a long walk if you were in the farthest cabins."

Khwai Tented Camp

Khwai Tented Camp

"Khwai Tented Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 2 Jun 2019
"It was a nice change to stay in a tent rather than chalet cabins. The whole camp was a little more rustic but the creativity of the meal locations was lovely.

In the public Moremi Game Reserve, there was lots of game but no off-road driving was allowed, which was disappointing in terms of getting close to some of the animals. However, in the private concession area it was very crowded around attractions with up to 11 vehicles at one time."
