Country: Botswana

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Back in the UK but our minds and hearts are still in Botswana. What a trip! The safari provided us with the best experience we could have hoped for. "
Tribes Service: "Apart from the hiccup with South African Airways on the non-existent gluten free meal (although this was corrected on the way back) the whole trip was an amazing experience and we thank you very much for your precious help and support from start to finish. You can be proud of your partners for providing us with this unbelievable experience. A fantastic trip so we hope to be back for more..."
Guides: "We then met our guide, Matambo Mokoya, who has been an absolute star. His passion for wildlife was addictive and he always went the extra mile. He never missed anything and found the most amazing sightings of wild animals. Not only was he able to find rare species like Wild dogs, Sable, Leopards and many more, he also gave us a very interesting insight of their lives in the bush. Sharing this experience with him was a real gift and will stay with us for a long time. .The Camps' team was wonderful and TB regaled us with his bedtime stories, Keke a smiling young man always on hand to provide hot water and look after our comfort (loved the towels displays on our bed every day) and Life is probably the best bush chef and deserves a Michelin star! He looked after my gluten free diet perfectly and I am very grateful to him. An unforgettable team."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"


Our Memories

"On Belinda's birthday morning we had an early visit of about thirty Baboons just outside our balcony and some curious Mongooses! It could not have started in a better way. The boat trip on the Chobe river was the perfect introduction to the safari, thanks to Mr T. We were also very lucky with our travel companions, all happy Australians, and we all got on very well having many laughs on the way. Travelling the three different destinations, Savuti, Kwai and the Moremi reserve was the perfect way to discover the abundant wildlife and the wonderful landscapes of Bostwana. It will take time to sort out the many photographs taken!"
