Beautiful Botswana.. August 2016

3.0

Wildlife & Wilderness of Botswana

Beautiful Botswana was truly a sight and experience to behold!
We all got on well as a group.
Weather was superb!
The Bush Camps made the holiday for me!
Set amongst stunning scenery, the noises, the camp fire (Mellows cooking!) FANTASTIC.
Indeed a mention to Sam, Mellow and the "Pole Boys" et al. Fantastic guides and hosts! made the holiday that bit more special / enjoyable.
A couple of points to bring up, That, I guess? Knocked my rating from a potential "Excellent" down to a "Good"
As I have read in previous reviews. The Vehicle was in NO WAY SUITABLE!! for our sized group (11 of us!)
No room for legs! Let alone bags on your squashed knees, for some times seven to eight hours journeys.
Don't get me wrong, I love bush camping and roughing it, the rougher the journey the better as far as I am concerned, But for ELEVEN people squashed like sardines in that vehicle was a bit absurd. That also impacted on the Photography issue too, little space etc.
The other point was, We where fortunate to have a great guide in Sam!!!
But the driver / guide who joined us for the second week, was err NOT so good! I shall leave it at that, other than to say, That some times we felt it impacted on us viewing possibly LESS wildlife than we could have?!
Wildlife as we know, Is not a given.. BUT..I left feeling a tad disappointed with what we did / didn't see.
So many.. Probably the Wild dogs sighting for me..
He was a great guy!!
Helpful, Organised, Knowledgable.
Although a bit on the quiet and invisible side at times.
Great trip! I'd recommend it to anyone!!
Just try and go with EIGHT or fewer people in the group!
Also, Be prepared for the second guides "Colouring book chats" in the middle of a game drive?! GRR...Apple Blossom, Dirt, Poo, History, Bushes, Leaves, Grass, Geology, Ants, Air etc, etc...... chats
He likes to test you too, So read up or else!! Because remember people... "What you see is what you get!!!" ;) ;)


Take Sweets for the long journeys.
There is ample laundry chances, so no need to take loads of clothes.
You will need some thing to cover your face with on a couple of the drives, It is like hot air sky diving with the air in your face :)
Also..We found Moremi almost devoid of ANY wildlife at all at times?? (including birds or anything!)
So keep an open mind and enjoy the termite mounds! :p

Botswana & Zimbabwe Lodge Safari February 2017

Botswana & Zimbabwe Lodge Safari

Looked good, but if you want to see the amazing Makgadikgadi Salt Pan, don't pick this one. We've been before, it should be miles of eerie silence, but not on this trip. This "visit" was a very real disappointment, leaving us feeling cheated. To see it reasonably you need 4WD and this trip didn't use it here.
The accommodation, we didn't expect to be luxurious, but one place for 2 nights was grimy cramped airless and sleepless.
Flight over the Okavango.

Very good.
