A very nice experience! The guide came at the agreed time. Head to the banks of the Okavango via a very pleasant bush path. Then a magnificent moroko ride among hippos and crocodiles followed by a short hike among elephants, red lechwe and waterbuck. The day ended in style with a 2.5 hour safari in the okavango plains surrounded by elephants, giraffes, wildebeest, hippos, gazelles, red lechwe, waterbuck... in short, just fun. Thanks again.

Very slick and well organised. Pick up in a nice mini van, transitioned through the border where our guide took us to the boat for the first activity. The game drive was after a very nice lunch in a really nice hotel (Marina Lodge). All-in-all a great day.

We had a wonderful time with our guide Goms. He was knowledgeable, kind and went out of his way to get us our “wishlist” of animals! We wish we could have stayed longer!

Safari in Botswana was very nice and boat safari totally worth it as we saw many animals.

Pick up was on time. The guide on the mokoro was super friendly and experienced.
