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 experience was so special because it was made to be unforgettable...Every detail was tailored to the best satisfaction...From the tour guide to the spectacular Falls, to all the activities that were included...But most important was to be treated with the best customer service that you can expect...The experience extended beyond our expectations...We learned more than what we expected...The tour guide included every little detail about nature...From the trees to the flowers to the birds and history...We will always remember...THANK YOU!!!...We highly recommend this tour
Lovely journey to Botswana through Zambia and Botswana to Chobe. The park was lovely and very green this time of year. We saw a great variety of birds and animals especially very close to a mother and baby elephant. Also two Male lions. The cruise on the Chobe river we saw hippos crocodiles buffalo and birds as well as various antelope. Unfortunately being the rainy season it rained and reduced our views. Guides were excellent and it was a very enjoyable day .
Simon was an excellent guide. All the transport from Zambia and back was on time. The Falls were great and the walk through the Rain forest was lovely and Simon was very knowledgeable about the plants animals and insects. The cultural tour was very interesting and informative and made us realise how lucky we were. The High Tea at the Victoria Falls Hotel rounded off a really great day. We loved it.
Booked the sunrise to sunset tour to chobe national park so that I could get in early before the crowd. Got to see zebras on the way. There is no lion in Chobe National park. If you must see, don't choose here. Got to see giraffes, elephants, hippos, impalas and gibbons everywhere! The sunset setting on the river was amazing.
