Botswana Safari

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 19-Mar-2011 and 26-Mar-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


In retrospect, it probably was a mistake to go at this time of year. Our timing was dictated by the fact that we were already in Africa.

However, the rainy season meant that the animals were widely dispersed, requiring long rides in the vehicles to see handfuls of animals. And areas of the concessions were inaccessible owing to high water. Also the tall grass meant that animals were hard to see. There were magic moments during our week, but not enough of them to justify the considerable expense.

Our dissatisfactions with the safari have nothing to do with Expert Africa itself.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
