Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

Perfect! So simple, so close to nature. It was so funny having hippos snuffling (roaring actually) round our tents as they fed. Hearing how the camp was managed and seeing how simply we could live was an eyeopener - particularly to see where our lovely food came from. The kitchen was amazing and they were clearly very proud of it. They were such a nice group of people. They read us perfectly: I had worried that our kids might not be engaged by the activities but there was no need for concern. I think they would have done anything for OP!
