We never knew that hyenas could be cute until we saw a couple that were just a few weeks old...inquisitive and playful.

The best sun-downer location was next to the river which contained several hippo pods.....we were initially considered a threat so were greeted with very threatening wide opened mouths - so wide that several of the hippos then over balanced crashing in the water. Fabulous photo opportunity!

Tribes Overall:

The holiday was fabulous and exceeded expectations!

Tribes Service:

The only thing that would have been useful to know was that our bags could not go straight through to Maun and that we had to collect them at J'burg then re-register two floors up for the flight to Maun.

Guides:

All guides were good but Spencer at Lagoon was outstanding - his knowledge amazing.

The tracker at Kwara (AT) was excellent and sometimes was more knowledgeable than the guide.

What a view of the spray from Victoria falls. We loved having the place to ourselves (9 of us) and it felt like our own personal dinner party.
