Holiday review by Mrs. Else McMichael

Name: Mrs. Else McMichael

Date of trip: 24/03/2017

Number of people: 2

I loved seeing the San bushmen and their ways at deception valley . The enormous herds of buffalo,Zebra,and elephants and giraffe and of course the lion families with impala everywhere the birds were also amazing There had been exceptional rain and so many roads were impassable due to flooding and we couldn't go to our original campsite in the Moremi park ,and of course the grass was very high and lush and vegetation very overgrown making it hard to spot the smaller game !! but ce la vie !! The local poeple very gentle and friendly

I hope that we treated both animals and humans with respect and took away photos and only left footprints and some money!!!


The places you stayed

The pool at Deception Valley Lodge

Wonderful place to stay, great food and hugely informative game drives.


Maun Lodge and river

Maun Lodge

The only weak point of the trip. Rooms and food OK. Pool filthy- covered in brown slime so unusable- no explanation or apology


Old House grounds

The Old House

Chobe & Savuti


The pool at Deception Valley Lodge

Deception Valley Lodge

Botswana

the cuisine at that lodge was some of the best I have ever had both in presentation,taste and variety.only one concern-our accommodation,some way on its own,as all others, and we were compulsorily escorted to it each night, as animals,particularly lions and hyenas roamed around too,was great BUT on reflection we were not informed what to do if we had an emergency in the middle of the night .Who to contact and How to.
Fortunately all was very well with us ! and it was a really great place tostay
