My Jul 2021 trip

Zimbabwe and 1 other country between 23 Jul 2021 and 2 Aug 2021

Trip rating: Excellent
"We enjoyed our trip allot. Saw a few people that we had seen before.

Saw some animals that we had not seen before.

Some of our game drives could have been better, probably would have been with a different guide"

Gomoti Plains Camp

Gomoti Plains Camp

"Gomoti Plains Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 23 Jul 2021
"We were in the family tent and that was fabulous. My daughter was quite ecstatic, two really large beds on each end and a small sofa, easy chair and table in the middle.

We were greeted by the manager, Onyx. He was great! If we had a request he would handle it immediately.

We had to have a nurse fly in to give us a Covid test and he made sure that they emailed him the results so that he could print them and give them to us to ensure that we would have the results.

The only negative was our guide. He had some trouble finding the animals. We had three instances which were very disappointing, one of which was a lion kill that he said was only vultures over some old bones and did not try to go see for sure. The other guide found the kill."

Batonka Guest Lodge

Batonka Guest Lodge

"Batonka Guest Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 26 Jul 2021
"Said that they had satellite tv but they had channels 1-9. Each channel played the exact same thing, snippets of shows only, no real shows.

We just stayed on property so location did not matter. Not very big to walk around. Staff were pleasant."

Deteema Springs Camp

Deteema Springs Camp

"Deteema Springs Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 27 Jul 2021
"The manager now was our guide when we stayed there two years ago and he greeted us with a smile and acknowledgment.

We had planned on staying in the family tent but that was not to our liking so we stayed in two separate tents (the exact two that we stayed in two years ago) which were right where we would want them, in front of the spring where the elephants came to drink.

Animals were a little scarcer then before but our guide was very pleasant and attentive"

Camp Hwange

Camp Hwange

"Camp Hwange review"

3 nights Arrived 30 Jul 2021
"Overall this was probably the worst of the four camps that we were in.

They did have us on real long game drives but saw few animals. Our guide was into birds and pointed out quite a few.

They had no wifi for the quests but staff did have wifi so once in our tent I could not communicate with my daughter"
