Okavango 2011

Botswana between 21 Apr 2011 and 27 Apr 2011

Trip rating: Excellent
"Had a fantastic time! It was one of the best holidays we've been on.

This was made even better by how helpful everyone at Expert Africa was, from Chris answering our numerous questions at the Travel & Destinations Show in London to booking our trip with Maruska in evenings after we'd finished work. We'd just like to say a big Thank You to everyone at Expert Africa, and we'll remember you for the future should we decide to head back to Africa!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We really appreciated two key aspects of your setup:

- Your presence at the Earl's Court Travel & Destination show and Chris' kindness in sitting down with us for over an hour to talk with us about Botswana and the surrounding area

- Being able to speak to Maruska after UK work hours, whilst she was located out in New Zealand (thankfully all charged at UK rates)."

"Mapula Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 21 Apr 2011
"Mapula lodge had some of the most spectacular game viewing during our trip to Africa. Our guide and tracker, Dix and Simon, had excellent knowledge both of the local terrain and animal habits. We even managed to see two male lions stalking and taking down a zebra, thanks in large part to their patience and knowledge.

The accommodation was also excellent (we slept soundly after the first night of getting used to the hippo snorts outside)! All the staff were really friendly as well.

The only minor disappointment was that owing to the extremely high water levels at the time, the pool was out of action."

Nxamaseri Lodge

"Nxamaseri Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 24 Apr 2011
"We loved our stay here and were made to feel very welcome by the whole team. The lodge has a very laid back atmosphere and you can set your own schedule as to activities which was very relaxing after the safari camps in the delta.

We went fishing and bird watching on the river, but the pinnacle of our stay was a trip to the Tsodilo Hills, what a sight! These are a truly amazing sight and a must see when in the panhandle. We'd both like to say how grateful we were for a brilliant stop over at Nxamaseri, keep it up!"
