We had a good day in Botswana and saw lots of animals, despite it being the rainy season. Only saw one of the big 5 (elephants), but saw numerous birds, impala, antelope, hippo, baboons and giraffe. We even saw a hyena on the return trip to Zimbabwe. The Botswana company used for this particular excursion appears to be quite small, as there was only my wife & I on the trip (other excursions appeared to have 20 - 30 people on them). This meant was had our own guide for the day, who was very good. The game drive in the morning lasted 2 hours, 30 minutes, which was less than the 3 hours that I expected. Buffet lunch was excellent and included 3 courses. Afternoon boat trip was in a small boat, enabling you to get close to the river bank. Boat trip lasted about 2 hours, again less than I was expecting. Transportation was good throughout and border crossings were very easy, although had to wait 40 minutes at the border on the return for another trip to return. Overall, an enjoyable trip.
This was absolutely the best tour of the many countries that I've traveled to so far. If you're in the Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, Botswana region this tour is a must. Request Brook as your guide because he really takes his time so everyone can get the perfect pictures. And he really gets up close and personal with the animals that sometimes it will make your heart stop.
Had a very nice day, everything went smoothly from pick up to drop off. We had Brook for our guide and he was fantastic, very patient and obliging. I might just mention that if you have water with your lunch, you will be charged. There could be water and juice on the buffet table but we didn’t see it.
Gut organisierter Trip von VFS in den Choke-Park mit Schiff auf dem Chobefluß und Nachmittagssafari mit Safari-Auto. Ein- und Ausreise aus Zimbabwe bzw. Botswana zügig und problemlos. Jeweils viel Großwild gesehen, darunter Löwen sehr nahe. Gutes Lunchbuffet.
Overall trip was great. If you are on the Zambia side they will not pick you up at your hotel. That was the only part of the trip I did not like. The guides were great, definitely would do this again.
