Number of people: 2
Country: Botswana

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Just a perfect journey to some great places!"
Tribes Service: "Tracy was so easy to deal with !"
Guides: "Our guides on all drives were knowledgeable and so friendly, loved their attitudes and how they know their jobs!"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Yes, everywhere we went, from camps to hotels, recycling is done."


Chobe Game Lodge
Hotel couldn’t be faulted, just missed being in a tent! Our guide Nio was passionate about her job. interestingly the lodge is run by women!
Machaba Camp
Would have loved to stay there longer, all the staff were so lovely. And, they made Dave’s 60th bday special.
Sun City Cascades
Tired old hotel, needs some TLC. Breakfast ok, dining room freezing!!! On the plus side, Golf every day and transport provided to anywhere on Sun City
Batonka Guest Lodge
Oasis in amongst the rather commercial and sometimes annoying town, street hawkers drive you mad. Would recommend Batonka every time!

Our Memories

"The highlights among so many memories. Seeing a leopard up close! Victoria Falls, breathtaking. Sitting in the co pilots seat on a safari 7 seater plane, scary!!!!"
