Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

With only one night here we had little time to assess the Lodge, but it seemed very good. the owners were so helpful, and took us out as soon as we arrived, to see lions nearby. Walk with San Bushmen in the morning was very interesting, the men were keen to show us the old skills of survival in the desert, it did not feel awkward at all, just very interesting and absorbing.
