Tribes Service: "Excellent"
Guides: "All the guides and other staff we met were unfailingly welcoming, friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable."

Elephant Valley Lodge
It's worth getting up early to watch the water hole. We saw seven wild dogs one morning. The game viewing at Chobe was spectacular.
Kanana Camp
Very comfortable accommodation and fabulous staff. Really enjoyed the mokoro trip, spotting wildlife from tiny frogs to elephants. It was good to have the chance of a walk too.
Meno a Kwena
This camp is absolutely stunning! Possibly the highlight of the holiday was sitting in the plunge pool with a cold drink watching elephants coming down to drink and play in the river down below. The skill of our guides Max and Steven in tracking down lions was particularly impressive.
Camp Okuti
The accommodation here is gorgeous. Especially enjoyed showering in the open air watching squirrels and birds in the trees overhead. We had elephants swimming in the river past our room at sunset one evening.
