Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

Brilliant guide (very good on birds) and a wealth of wildlife - all close to the lodge. The river floodplain is a magnet for every kind of creature and the vast numbers of zebra are remarkable. Huts well situated close to the water and with things to see straight outside. Wonderfully friendly staff keen to make our stay memorable.
