Holiday review by Mrs. Tracy Heazel

Date of trip: 19/07/2015
Number of people: 4
Country: Botswana

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Everything bar one transfer was exactly as expected and we had a fantastic holiday"
Tribes Service: "We would definitely have had issues in South Africa & Tanzania without Tribe's guidance.... luckily we took small soft bags for the 10 seater plane journeys and we had the kid's birth certs with us."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "We found out a huge amount about the countries visited that we weren't aware of - such as the fact that Chobe Elephant Camp was built to maintain the lowest carbon footprint possible - we discovered much about Botswana and Tanzania and the way of life of the residents"


Pom Pom Camp
Accommodation was amazing as were the staff - food was also fab!
Chobe Elephant Camp
Loved this place and the people and the river trip on the second day was brilliant!
AfricaSky Guest House
We were only here one night on a stopover but the hotel was exactly what was required.
AZambezi River Lodge
Great views and very handy to see all the sights we wanted to see in Victoria Falls

Our Memories

"Everything but the fact that it was really cold in Pom Pom at night - saw some frost on the ground, not good when you're staying in a tent - but it is their winter of course!"
