We love it when guest say their Botswana Safari was Amazing!
Natasha recently booked Lauren and Ryan on a trip they would never forget! Starting in the desert camp of Leroo Le Tau at the Makgadikgadi Pans, they then flew up to the Okavango Delta and Camp Xakanaxa and ending in the Savuti Marsh area at Savute Safari Lodge. Lauren and Ryan then went to Victoria Falls and stayed at Ilala Lodge.
Thanks for your email. The Botswana safari was amazing! Everything ran so smoothly and we had a fabulous time at all the camps and saw so many animals. Thank you so much for putting this trip together for us!
Leroo La Tau was gorgeous and we loved the accommodation and the guide we had. It was a shame that the camp was a bit far from the salt pans which to visit would have required adding an extra night as it takes a day to get out and back. So something we would like to do if we ever went out again as we didn’t realise the distance. I think our favourite camp was Xakanaka as we saw a lot of wildlife, the guide was wonderful and the tented accommodation was a great experience (especially since the tent we were in had a hippo visitor eating away next to it on two nights). Savute was also good and again a really interesting landscape quite different to the others. We saw a lot of lions at savute (a pride of 10 and three female lions crossing a river). Overall, the staff at all the camps were really lovely and it was great how they catered for my gluten free diet. We didn’t want to leave Botswana and will definitely return.
Zimbabwe was also a good experience. The accommodation was good enough and in a perfect location to walk to the Victoria Falls. We went over to the Zambia side for a day to see the falls there. The view of the falls was better from the Zimbabwe side (you see more of the face of the falls) however the atmosphere in Zambia seemed a bit nicer, possibly cheaper and you did get closer to the falls than in Zimbabwe.
I have attached some pictures from the holiday. We were already talking about visiting Africa again in the near future (thinking Uganda with the Gorillas followed by Tanzania safari and Zanzibar) so I am sure we will be in touch.
Thanks again Natasha!
