I couldn't find you on TripAdvisor, so I'll leave a review here.
I just got back from a tour with a company that subcontracted with Jenman. Everything seemed to flow well, and Rex and Mats were great guides, full of knowledge and easygoing with a large group. They also were very talented trackers, especially Rex. I mean, Rex spotted a porcupine on the night drive with a spotlight. What the what? It was crazy.
I really enjoyed Botswana and will look forward to returning again.
There was some confusion about our accommodations; one of the reservations were cancelled and then we were promised a tented camp which didn't end up being the one we actually stayed at...this caused some issues with long drives because I don't think we were at the place we were supposed to be. Since I don't know where that mix up happened, I'll keep this at 5 stars due to the experience with the guides and the stays/drives at the other locations, which were great.

I just got back from the "Botswana Wildlife Breakaway" tour and I simply loved it!! I was amazed by the sheer beauty of the nature, the vastness when driving through Botswana or Zimbabwe and of course by the pure elegance of all the spotted animals. Dexter and Ruth were the most wonderful tour guides you could possibly wish for. This has been the most incredibly beautiful trip I've experienced so far...

We had a fantastic tour to Botswana with Jenman. The accommodation was great and our guides (Ntando and Rex) were excellent. Loved getting to experience true African wilderness without having to worry about organising anything ourselves.

I was very impressed with the Family Adventure company in terms of the holiday delivered which was exceptional. The booking and pre-holiday experience was fine although it would be better to have a specific contact to email rather than just to phone the general number with queries.

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective, FAC were not as welcoming. Another company we have travelled with sent a welcome pack with a travelling companion (soft toy) and activities to do while travelling. When on the holiday this company also catered more for families needs e.g. more frequent stops when travelling for food and toilets, without parents having to ask. The stops were also at more sensible times e.g. making sure there was a stop at lunch time (12.30ish), rather than early afternoon (1.30 onwards). Children (and adults) get irritable if they've not eaten making the journey more stressful.

      About The Family Adventure Company

      Founded two decades ago and based in the UK, The Family Adventure Company specializes in small group family adventure vacations. The company is now part of the global adventure travel operator Intrepid Travel, and trips are offered through Intrepid as well, allowing them to greatly expand their range.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      With more than 20 years’ experience, The Family Adventure Company helped pioneer the concept of small-group adventure travel for families with young children. Activities are wide-ranging, from river rafting and kayaking to cycling, sailing, camping, and wildlife viewing, all geared to the ages and interests of the family travelers.

      Who Travels With Them?

      A wide variety of families, including solo-parent, single-child, multi-generational families -- parents, children, and grandparents traveling together -- and families with teenagers. The latter have dedicated trips of special interest to teens.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Much of the world: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.

      How Does it Work?

      No matter where you travel, The Family Adventure Company provides an English-speaking, family-friendly local leader. Lodging, transportation and activities are also included. Tours typically consist of three or four families with kids of similar ages or interests. (You can also put together your own trip with just your family or other families you’re friendly with.) Children 14 and under get a ten percent discount off adult prices; large families (over two kids) get another price break.

      Why Travel With Them?

      The award winning company offers a wide range of trips for a wide variety of families. Because they only cater to families, they know what kids like – and as any parent can tell you, nothing is more disastrous than a family tour not geared in any way to kids. The company also supports responsible and sustainable travel practices and gives back to local communities.
