Pamela was timeous and very friendly. Fetching us from our hotel and delivering us to the Botswana border. Then met us again after the days activity to drop us off at the hotel. The cruise and game drive was excellent. Plenty to see. Our guide, George, was terrific. Very knowledgeable. Plenty of laughs and good conversations. Lunch was plentiful and delicious served by the lovely ladies back at the office. A day we'll spent. 100% recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyed the entire day. The hotel pick up was prompt and friendly. We saw so many animals on both the game drive and cruise. Our guide, George, with his excellent safari eyes made sure we never missed any animal, like a sleeping lion under a bush. He was very knowledgeable and brilliant at what he does. The ladies at the office serving us lunch and morning coffee were equally as friendly. I highly recommend this activity.

This was an amazing experience! Sam our tour guide was absolutely fantastic and made this an amazing experience we will never forget! He showed us all the animals up close including lions that were only 4 meters away but he made us feel so safe through his experience!! If you are planning to do a trip to Chobe DEFINITLY do this one! Food for lunch was also amazing!

Excellent day trip from lodge pick up and transfer to the Zambia/Botswana border where our excellent guide for the day (Phil) met us and guided us through immigration. Great morning game drive, followed by an excellent 3 course lunch and then a boat / river trip in the afternoon. Saw all of the big 5 except for the elusive leopard!

This tour is great. If you like nature and tranquility, you should especially choose this activity. Well organized and very experienced guide.
