1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

It was all truly wonderful. I was most worried about creature comforts during the primitive stay in the Delta but it was great - no hardship whatsoever. I could never begin to capture how incredible the wildlife viewing is - and it just keeps coming!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don't overpack, but do take what you feel is essential for you to be comfortable on a camping trip. For me, it was a self-inflating, full-length sleeping mat - on top of the camping mattress provided, it kept my old bones very happy.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The tour company is extremely conscientious about conservation and environmental sustainability, so there were no issues. Botswana has done an incredible job of embracing conservation tourism as one of their most valuable resources, and the communities seem to be deriving significant benefit.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

11 out of 10!!!!

So many fantastic memories. It was a wonderful experience, too many to choose from.

Go with the flow. Bring a nail brush and some biodegradable wipes.

Yes, overall it was very good.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

One of the best we have ever been on. I was worried about camping as it is not normally something I would do but it was well organised and bug free. Even the toilets and showers on the campsite were much better and cleaner than I thought they would be. If you are going to do it just relax and enjoy the experience. Yes you get a bit dirty and your clothes aren't as clean as you normally would wear them but so what. Everyone is in the same boat. The people on the trip with us were wonderful. Great times and brilliant memories. I'm so glad we explored Southern Africa this way.
