Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

A very different experience and they are excellent at what they do. The 'bucket shower' system was so much more than we had anticipated. Hot water was provided whenever we wanted it, and the shower area had a lovely view, complete with Zebras and Elephants. Particularly attentive and creative regarding Vegetarian and Lacto intolerance diets. We also enjoyed the Bushmen walk very much, the information and their sense of humour.
