Overall the trip was very well organised and everything ran smoothly. The minor issues at Chobe Water Villas are relatively insignificant in the scale of things. Everyone in our group had a fabulous experience, with lasting memories. For some the environment was a totally new experience, but the knowledge and experience of our guides proved reassuring.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:
Environmental knowledge and responsibility is high at all lodges. A clear effort is being made to employ and train local staff.
The places you stayed
Very comfortable, and varied environment. Wildlife a little difficult to spot, but tracker JD and guide Waga did a great job with us.
Very well managed and run by Andrew and Rona, who added their personal touch with the guests. Our guide Luckim did an exceptional job tracking and finding the wildlife, and also Mot on the night drive and the stars. The mokoro trip was very well conducted.
An interesting contrast to the river, wetlands and delta environment in the semi-desert. Wildlife more difficult to spot, but Postr and Kaizer did a very good job, with interesting explanations of the flora and fauna.
