Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

Excellent facilities in the rooms, which were clean and spacious. Meals were always very good and it was very kind of them to do a birthday cake the day I was there. A good view of elephants at the waterhole from the main building, plenty of snacks and complimentary water and drinks always available. From the welcome on arrival onwards, I felt really at home. Having an extra (third) night would have been well worthwhile.
