Xakanaxa Camp
We just loved this camp. Bruce, Barbara and Lettie just made this a very special experience - as did our guide, Ollie. All the staff deserve medals they were just so obliging. The accommodation and food were fantastic - loved the wildlife residents too - and each day's safari was so exciting. This was justg the best experience.
Stanley Safari Lodge
This was our first taste of Africa - and a lovely, serene start. Clara, Desai and Sampson (and, I think, David) made us feel welcome, checked we were happy and chose lovely dining spots for us. It was very personalised care. The isolation, the view of the Falls from our deck and the lovely surroundings were bliss.
Meno a Kwena
This was our true bush experience and we loved it - outdoor showers and all. The huge numbers of zebras coming to the river to drink were the icing on the cake. We laughed a lot with our hosts, Doc Tor and Tsogang, who took such care of us.and made us so welcome. The accommodation was bush-style but very comfortable and the food was very good. Our guide and the bushmen walk made it such a worthwhile experience.
