A fantastic experience - all we hoped for!

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 18-Aug-2010 and 27-Aug-2010 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Our 'holiday of a lifetime' was just that! Our experiences in the Delta were unforgettable - great accommodation and fantastic guiding.

The tranquility and beauty of being out on the water in a mokoro; a close encounter with a hippo; driving through 1m of floodwater to reach the camp; tracking lions; spotting a leopard on a night drive; and the total darkness with no electric lights visible other than those at our camp...........Our memories will stay with us for ever. And then the number of animals at Muchenje! Elephant, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, hippos, antelope ....... it was amazing!

With hinsight, it was definitely a good choice to experience the Delta first and visit Chobe National Park second. Our boys loved the thrill of tracking and searching in the Delta, but then welcomed the opportunity to be so close to such a huge numbers of animals at our final camp.

Thanks, Expert Africa, for organising such a memorable trip!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Lucy was very helpful, working with us until we identified exactly the trip we wanted, and answering all of our many questions. Her patience really paid off - we had a fantastic holiday. Keep up the good work!
