Country: Botswana

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Our honeymoon was fantastic, we loved Botswana and all of the camps we went to were special but also all different. We didn't want to come home and can't wait to go back!"
Tribes Service: "Hannah was very helpful throughout the whole time."
Guides: "All of our guides were brilliant, they were all so friendly had excellent knowledge of the areas and the animals we were searching for. We couldn't believe how fantastic their eyesight was when tracking!!"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Good"


Elephant Valley Lodge
Lovely view of the waterhole from our tent. Wa great to watch all the animals coming down to the waterhole form the hide also. Was lovely going on the boat on the Chobe river and seeing all the elephants in the water
Kwara Camp
The best camp!! Staff were wonderful here, they made you feel so welcome, our game drives were fantastic - lions, cheetah, pangolin to name a few. I loved the little touches - a bushbaby (hot water bottle) in the morning to keep you warm on the game drives and at night to keep you warm. I didn't want to leave...
Meno a Kwena
Great camp, our view over the Boteti river and seeing Zebra drinking in the morning was fantastic. Everyone was really friendly and we spent a fantastic day watching massive herds of Zebra from the floating hide - at times there were over 200 Zebra infront of us!! - AMAZING!
Pom Pom Camp
The camp was very luxurious, the tents were fantastic and everyone was very friendly. Food was excellent also.

Our Memories

"It was incredible to watch a cheetah kill, we had been tracking the cheetah for a couple of days and then had to give up and come back to the camp but our fantastic tracker spotted them on our way back. It was wonderful to see three brothers all relaxing but then they got up, started to stalk and then they flew after an impala and we flew with them in our vehicle - AMAZING!!"
"Traveling back to the camp at night we came across three lionesses relaxing, then one got up and we decided to see where she went... the lioness had found a pangolin and was trying to eat it!! Three times we watch her pounce on it, try to eat it and then get bored! It was tense times but thankfully in the end the pangolin got away - they move so much faster than you think they should!"
