Reviews for Botswana small group lodge safari


review 15 May 2018

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

The opportunity to be in such close proximity to a large range of wild animals in their natural habitat.

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

It's not always easy to access a bank so when you get the chance, get plenty of the local currency. ATMs are not always reliable. We were advised never to put a card into an ATM in Zimbabwe = high risk of being swallowed up. Better to take plenty of dollars or other accepted currency. Avoid salads, drinks with ice, tap water - even for rinsing your toothbrush.

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

Impossible to reduce environmental impact by traveling there. But it can be minimized by leaving nothing behind and using local produce where possible. Also employing local people - in evidence everywhere. Conservation support: save our sausage trees campaign.

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

Very well organized. Excellent guides throughout. Accommodation fine apart from Rivernest which could do with upgrading or replacing. The itinerary was outstanding - provided a comprehensive range of experiences of Botswana and Victoria Falls.
