Holiday review by Richard Daplyn

Date of trip: 02/05/2012
Number of people: 2
Country: Botswana

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Excellent"
Tribes Service: "Hannah was very helpful, She answered all our questions throughout the booking time. Trip notes and itineraries were well thought out, other than one cut and paste error. She understood my brief very well and worked to it"
Guides: "Excellent"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Good"


Kwara Camp
Kwara was our favourite in terms of atmosphere and the people. It does need a liitle bit of tlc as far as the tents are required and sort the showers out guys, solar has to be the way to go. Otherwise food and service was perfect and boy do they do a good G & T
Linyanti Bush Camp
2nd best in accommodation. A little more light in the rooms would help, shaving by torchlight is a challenge! Food not quite as good as else where but still very good. Esse was great as he just had us to look after and that must be very difficult. Only place that did a proper night drive
Pom Pom Camp
The best camp physically, all very good. Game was a bit restricted but they did the best they could and it was the only place we saw leopard. food excellent
Waterberry Lodge
Slightly disappointing compared to the others. The level of service was not quite so good but I am being picky, little things like not bringing you coffee after dinner and waking us up quarter of an hour later than requested. Little little things. Had we been their first, I suspect we would have loved it
