Date of trip: 24/03/2017
Number of people: 2
Country: Botswana

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "I cannot find fault in any part of the holiday"
Tribes Service: "yes thank you all very much"
Guides: "Jacob at Deception Valley Lodge and Tebe with the Bushways fully serviced camping Could not be bettered .They were both very Knowledgeable about everything that we chose to ask and the information volunteered.They were courteous and caring of us."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "I hope that we treated both animals and humans with respect and took away photos and only left footprints and some money!!!"


Deception Valley Lodge
the cuisine at that lodge was some of the best I have ever had both in presentation,taste and variety.only one concern-our accommodation,some way on its own,as all others, and we were compulsorily escorted to it each night, as animals,particularly lions and hyenas roamed around too,was great BUT on reflection we were not informed what to do if we had an emergency in the middle of the night .Who to contact and How to. Fortunately all was very well with us ! and it was a really great place tostay

Our Memories

"I loved seeing the San bushmen and their ways at deception valley . The enormous herds of buffalo,Zebra,and elephants and giraffe and of course the lion families with impala everywhere the birds were also amazing There had been exceptional rain and so many roads were impassable due to flooding and we couldn't go to our original campsite in the Moremi park ,and of course the grass was very high and lush and vegetation very overgrown making it hard to spot the smaller game !! but ce la vie !! The local poeple very gentle and friendly"
