Botswana Overview

Botswana between 21 Jun 2011 and 1 Jul 2011

Trip rating: Excellent
"We had an absolutely fantastic time. Nick (with additional help from Lucy in his absence) organised a superb trip for us at very short notice.

We are fairly experienced Africa travellers so we knew what we looking for and we got exactly what we asked for in terms of variety of environments and expert guiding etc (despite understandable limitations on camp availability caused by the very short lead-in/booking time).

I felt Nick quickly understood our objectives (specifically in terms of photographic opportunities, but also in terms of camp ambiance etc) and was very efficient in terms of putting options to us and getting confirmations etc.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Not particularly. I was very impressed with the service we received and would be very happy to book again with Expert Africa !"

"Chitabe Lediba review"

3 nights Arrived 22 Jun 2011
"Superb accommodation and food, with really friendly and professional staff. We were really made to feel at home at this camp and absolutely loved the experience.

Expert guiding from Tuso (and work experience trainee Andrew) with a real willingness to seek out great game sightings without worrying how long the game drive was taking.

A great variety of terrain and habitat meant animal and bird sightings were really varied."

Shinde Camp

Shinde Camp

"Shinde Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 25 Jun 2011
"The camp managers Alex and Corinne were great - very professional and very friendly. The camp staff were also very good, although initially the atmosphere created by the staff on arrival felt a bit stilted and rigid/formal.

Unfortunately, water levels meant there wasn't much game on the island itself, but the boat trips we took were wonderfully relaxing, and the scarcity of game meant we decided to take a more relaxed approach to our game viewing, spending "quality time" with, for example, a baby giraffe and its mother and a family of warthogs, rather than worrying about "more exciting" game sightings.

If this had been our first or our last camp I think we would have been a bit disappointed about the lack of game (luck of the draw on safari trips!), but as it was our "middle" camp, it actually worked very well for us in terms of a relaxing contrast and also gave us an insight into a more watery environment in the Delta, so were are happy we went to Shinde.

The accommodation and food - while very good - were not as good as at the first (Chitabe Lediba) or last (Lagoon) camps."

Lagoon Camp

"Lagoon Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 28 Jun 2011
"A wonderful camp - really fantastic accommodation and layout - and a very friendly environment created by the professional staff.

Great expertise, enthusiasm, commitment and customer care from the driver/guide (Carlos) and tracker (James).

Two great activity sightings with the local pack of wild dogs and a long daylight sighting with a pangolin added to the excitement of the game viewings !"
