Date of trip: 19/06/2019
Number of people: 2
Country: Namibia

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Excellent"
Tribes Service: "Very happy with the experience with Tribes. Knowledgable consultant and very helpful. Would use you again. "
Guides: "The guides in Desert Rhino, Ongava, Mashara and especially muchaba were excellent. The guide in Chobe Game Ldge less so (lacked knowledge and confidence in driving off road)"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Average"


Chobe Game Lodge
5 star hotel on the side of the Chobe river. All creature comforts including Wi-fi! Food very good. Guides not so good. Seemed to lack the knowledge of other guides we have known.
Machaba Camp
Highlight of the trip. Tented camp on the side of the Khwai river. Magical place. Food good, staff excellent and brilliant guide (Leopard).
Anderssons at Ongava
Lodge the best we stayed in. The staff and food very good. Lacked a bit of the ‘African feel’.
Desert Rhino Camp
A magical place ( hard to get to!). The staff, guides and trackers were great.
Galton House
Friendly and excellent service.
Mushara Outpost
A real African feel,to this place. Staff very good and excellent food. A peaceful retreat. Good guide.
