My Jun 2016 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zimbabwe between 17-Jun-2016 and 3-Jul-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

overall experience was very good. we had a great time and saw all the wildlife we had hoped to see and more.

our only comment is that our original idea of starting at little kwara and finishing at savuti before the river boat would have been better. after nine days of jeep safaris any down time would have been better at savuti as you could watch wildlife at the waterhole. we think this would have worked better for us but may not suit other people.

My Jun 2013 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Namibia between 1-Jun-2013 and 30-Jun-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

fabulous. excellent. we had a brilliant time. everything that was booked worked out well with no hiccups. turnstone tours trip was brilliant. we had a memorable anniversary day complete with a picnic on top of a sand dune. our guide Ernst was very informative and made the day special. also thanks to kerr and downey at okuti for the champagne in our room on arrival.

thanks to maruska for all the help in organising the trip and sorting out the problems caused by the lack of flights between Windhoek and maun.
