Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

As we drove from the air port we saw Wild Dogs on the road side ! Things never looked back from then on. We were treated very specially here ! Our lodge was great and even had a private pool and wonderful facilities. The main area is very good with spectacular views over the river Chobe way below. When we arrived we could see hundreds of elephant, buffalo and other game. The evening boat trip took us right up close to these and we were lucky on our first night to see them crossing the river. The game drives were extensive and we had good viewings and perhaps the largest herd of Buffalo we were to see. Ishmael
