Botswana Summer 2022

Botswana between 30 Jul 2022 and 4 Aug 2022

Trip rating: Excellent
"We travelled as a family with our two teenage boys from Vic Falls to Maun in 20 days, self-driving & camping through the parks from Kasane to Maun with a 4x4 and we spent the final 5 nights at Splash. So to say taking things crescendo and leaving the best for the end. We got to know about Splash Camp from friends who stayed there and Expert Africa confirmed that the Camp would be exactly what we were looking for.

We originally planned to travel in March-April 2020 and postponed several times through the pandemic to July-August 2022 eventually.

Megan Green from Expert Africa was extremely helpful and accommodating to reschedule Splash several times. The most difficult part of the trip was actually getting to Zimbabwe and getting back from Botswana to Europe. The recipe for success with air travel in summer 2022 is to plan enough buffer between legs to accommodate for the unavoidable flight cancellations & rescheduling. The transfer with Moremi Air from Maun to Kwara Air Strip worked well. As soon as we arrived at Maun Airport and on the way back, Kwando Safari coached us through.

We arranged the air travel and the self-driving ourselves and just booked Splash through Expert Africa. In retrospect this was a mistake, we should have entrusted Expert Africa with the whole trip."

"Splash Camp review"

5 nights Arrived 30 Jul 2022
"While tourism seems to still be at a low to medium level in Zimbabwe to Botswana in summer 2022, premium lodges in high season like Splash are back to normal. The period now is an excellent time to travel (from when borders reopened from pandemic restrictions); accommodations and camp grounds are not so busy, the wildlife & nature has re-occuped spaces vacated by tourists during pandemic and has not retracted again. Corona measures did not bug us much; at Splash fortunately nobody has to wear masks. Very sensible policy considering that everything takes place outside.

Accommodations, camp facilities, game drives, meals, everything was perfect.

One vehicle breakdown. Vehicles are an expensive asset, maintenance is key for a long life. Our guide "Mr G." and our spotter Knobli did an outstanding job. Interaction with them was easy, we went fishing and caught fish, which we got to eat for dinner; bird viewing (&photography) and introduction to trees, bushes & grasses was an unexpected additional highlight.

We also enjoyed very much the porridge by the fire in the early morning, the morning coffee and sunset drinks in the bush, the outside shower, the boat tour and the amazing nature & wildlife.

Spash Camp is an excellent choice, we recommend."
