For me one of the most special moments was arriving at Sango Safari Camp and the heartfelt welcome we received from the staff there, singing a welcoming song to us, and introducing us to their "family". This enitre camp experience was exceptional, and definietly the best, Nelson the manager is clearly doing a great job, all the staff seemed so happy, and we were always greeted warmly,with cool face towels to greet us after a long drive. we had many special wildflife moments, KB our Guide at Sango, determined that we would find the lions, before our onward flight home, and with 5 mins to spare, we saw them. Our guide "Action" at Moremi crossing was also exceptional, and sought out the Rhinos, a pride of Lions, and on the last morning

At Bushman Plains camp ( a very small and 'authentic' camp owned and operated by the local bushmen) - we tracked a cheetah and her two cubs right from the beginning of her ' hunt' to the kill (an Impala) and the aftermath - all the way through at close quarters - just our vehicle - a spectacular experience. We were with an experienced Safari Director from Germany who was visiting various camps - as he has been doing for 25 years - and he said he had never experienced anything like it. It was an amazing experience, we were incredibly lucky - and was absolutely down to the knowledge of our guide, one of the local bushmen.

On Belinda's birthday morning we had an early visit of about thirty Baboons just outside our balcony and some curious Mongooses! It could not have started in a better way. The boat trip on the Chobe river was the perfect introduction to the safari, thanks to Mr T. We were also very lucky with our travel companions, all happy Australians, and we all got on very well having many laughs on the way. Travelling the three different destinations, Savuti, Kwai and the Moremi reserve was the perfect way to discover the abundant wildlife and the wonderful landscapes of Bostwana. It will take time to sort out the many photographs taken!

Our trip was packed full of exceptional wild life experiences. Whilst staying at Camp Xakanaxa we spent some time at a spot where 2 male lions had killed a buffalo. We watched while first one lion had a good meal, then a leopard appeared and stole a piece of meat followed by a wild dog who then disappeared at the sight of a lion This all occurred in the space of about 2 minutes. We were fortunate to have regular sightings of lion, leopard and wild dog as well as a couple of sightings of cheetah and of some of the rarer antelope, roan, sable and eland. The staff and guides at all of the camps were exceptionally friendly and seemed genuinely happy to be working there. We enjoyed the pre dinner singing put on by the staff at Camp Xakanaxa.
