Reviews for Botswana lodge safari


review 22 Jul 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Seeing African Wild dogs for the first time, as it completed my personal 'Big Five' of Predators. Many other memorable moments, too many to mention.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Expect very varied accommodation, from tent to 3* hotel. Go with the flow and enjoy. However, be careful in Victoria Falls (the town!) some of the street vendors are effectively beggars and difficult to shake off. If possible don't walk around alone even in daytime and especially around the bridge area where tourists congregate near the bungee jump. Just because it's Africa, don't expect it to be hot all the time! In winter (UK summer) early starts in particular very cold. Take lots of layers including something windproof for open vehicles.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local people were employed in some jobs, Camping and tented lodges were low impact.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Generally well designed itinerary and well run tour. Only complaint was that final day and a half at Vic Falls were pretty much a waste of time on a wildlife tour.
