Date of trip: 21/06/2018
Number of people: 1
Country: Botswana

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Excellent"
Tribes Service: "Excellent"
Guides: "Excellent"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "The camps are run by local people, and the knowledge/expertise of the guides and trackers, has been passed down through their families, and put to good use in providing tourists with an exceptional safari experience."


Lagoon Camp
I liked the smaller, more intimate setting of this camp.
Lebala Camp
I liked the smaller, more intimate setting of this camp.
Ilala Lodge
Lovely lodge, with a view of the spray, and sound of Victoria Falls. Closest lodge to the Falls - only a ten minute walk. Try the braised kudu steak - delicious.
Splash Camp
A brand new, larger camp with excellent facilities.

Our Memories

"The main purpose of my trip was to see wild dogs - I was not disappointed. I saw a pack of wild dogs with pups, lions with cubs, and a leopard with cubs, all at Splash Camp. I saw another pack of wild dogs with pups at Lagoon Camp, where we also tracked the adult dogs during a hunt. Also had a great river trip with lunch on the boat, at Lagoon Camp - lots of bird, hippo and elephant sightings. Lots of bird and red lechwe sightings at Lebala Camp, trying to get that iconic photo of lechwe running and splashing through the swamp. Tracked lions during a hunt, and had the daily pleasure of a large herd of elephants invading the camp, to munch on the succulent camp trees. Finally, Victoria Falls was awesome - got very wet, but worth it for the rainbows, which are best seen during the afternoon. Also managed to see a moonbow , which can be seen on the day of a full moon, and one day either side, if there is a clear sky. "
