Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

From the choir greetings to departure this camp was a real treat. All the staff were so friendly, welcoming and accomodating and the guide, Amos, worked tirelessly to make sure we saw as much as possible in this area. The birthday cakes made for our neice were especially memorable! Following a pair of lions chase off an interloping lioness was the highlight from this visit.
