Mobile Tented Safari

"Great days at Lynianti Mobile Tented Camp"

3 nights Arrived 23 Sep 2008
"We had very very good days at Lynianti tented camp. The landscape is not fantastic, the forest is almost dead but the whole place as a very special charm maybe by it's remotness but certainly by the staff quality and affection that suronds the guests. As one of us said ".. Hapy to feel at home...". Mr. Pilot, the camp manager, is outstanding in all aspects and all of us would like to travel with him again as well as with all the other staff members like Claire, the cook and all the others.

Lots of animals and some lions visiting us at dinner time at the camp made it a very pleasent stay.
Tents deserv some simple and cheap improvements inside that have been transmited to Pilot, and that are necessary when one spends there more than one night."

"Good place to be, good people to be with."

3 nights Arrived 26 Sep 2008
"Maybe not the best location in Okawango. Very nice landscape, not so many animals as in Lynianti, very nice staff but somehow more stiff and formal. Outstanding member was the moroco padler whose name is Kaykay or just KK, nefew
of our guide Bee.Period of the year not the best for the location, but the staff did everything possible do proportionate a very good stay."

Camps Bay Retreat

Camps Bay Retreat

"This place was a big error !"

3 nights Arrived 4 Oct 2008
"God place to be in summer.
Good will of hotel manager to change us to another place of the same group of hotels in the water front of Cape Town.
What we wanted was to be in the Water front and not in the Sea Front that by mistake we asked for !
Anyhow the Hotel was in bad conditions due to works that where going on.
Not recomendable for this time of the year."
