What people are saying about North-West District

This was an excellent trip but there was a few hiccups at the start. We were late being picked up and then there was an issue at the border when passing us onto the transfer at the Botswana side. The guide at chobe also didn’t know we were supposed to be on a cruise after the game drive either. Although he did sort this for us. People make mistakes though and we weren’t going to let it ruin our holiday. The border is around 45/60 mins form vic falls and is open between 06:00-20:00. The trip itself is amazing. The game drive with Brave was excellent and he was very informative. Sitting in the 4x4 surrounded by hundreds of passing elephants is something you will never forget. Brave was also able to spot not one but two different leopards at two different times during the drive. One was up a tree and we were able to get some brilliant photos. We also saw lions charging elephants and all the other animals. The cruise was also good seeing elephants make the river crossing

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!

SUPER experience 100s of elephants, a lion family hunting and a leopard that had caught a gazelle - fantastic
