Holiday review by Nicola Waters

Date of trip: 07/08/2010
Number of people: 4
Country: Botswana

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Excellent"
Tribes Service: "Excellent"
Guides: "Excellent"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Especially at Meno A Kwena where they are doing all they can to support Botswana people's way of life and maintain water for the animals too. All our guides were doing all they could to protect the animals."


Elephant Valley Lodge
Made better by our guide, Ran. Only improvement which I believe they should consider is to have the pricing all inclusive - we shared wine on two nights with others and found all this wine on our bill. Small issue, but a potential improvement thay may wish to consider
Kwara Camp
Such fantastic people and the guests lounge at Kwara 'airstrip' made me smile from the start. Seeing lions, leopards and cheetahs made it very special. Our guide, Isiah, and tracker, KB, were lovely and we were again completely spoilt - even teenagers were happy to be woken at 6am to see the game and wildlife!
Meno a Kwena
What a fantastic camp and David inspirational. I loved the shower service and our guide, Mex, had a fantastic sense of humour too. Never seen so many zebras and elephants playing in the river was a sight I doubt I'll ever see again.
David Livingstone Safari Lodge
Wonderful place for us to start. Relaxing, reasonably quiet and Vic Falls are simply stunning.
