Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews
Excellent for the food and camp staff, but terrible tents and camps beds - both past their sell-by date. The zips were very stiff and hard to get up and down. The beds were absolutely dreadful - thin mattresses which slithered around. They need to be got rid of. TRIBES REPLY: We\'re so sorry to hear about the standard of the tents and beds. This is very unlike Letaka, and this has now been taken up with them. They send Mary their unreserved apologies. New tents and beds (and mattresses) are being delivered at the start of August 2014. Tribes has seen now photos of the new, bespoke beds and the mattresses are all thick and comfortable. Zips do break on safaris such as this, but the team has a mending kit with them. Letaka are going to ensure that guides check all tents whilst on safari and mend anything that requires it. It is really regrettable that Mary had such a bad experience with the camping equipment on this trip, but Tribes are now reassured that this will not happen again due to the measures put in place.
