Holiday review by Ms Wendy Avis

Date of trip: 16/04/2019
Number of people: 3
Country: Botswana

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "It was fantastic, beyond expectation"
Tribes Service: "Alex was fantastic, he listened to my feedback and encorporated it. He checked in regularly ahead of time to make sure we had all the info we needed. And, he sorted out the discriminatory attempt to charge us extra on the light aircraft flight because two of us happen to weigh over 100kg."
Guides: "Guides were wonderful, knowledgeable, patient and we felt safe."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "I think so. We definitely didn't feel like we exploited anybody or were environmentally unsound."


Pom Pom Camp
Loved being off-grid. Location is amazing, accommodations were perfect, the view from the seating area was just incredible.
Chobe Elephant Camp
Gorgeous accommodation, food was excellent.
Ilala Lodge
Beautiful lodge, lovely restaurant and pool area. Rooms had their own patio. Staff were super helpful, and we booked our excursions through the front desk.

Our Memories

"The game drives, for sure. The camps were wonderful, we were well-taken care of everywhere we went. Pom Pom Camp, being more remote was my favourite. I very much appreciated the way we were moved from location to location, someone always met us and made sure we got where we were needing to go."
