Our happy selfdrivers
UK, January 2019, Camping fully equipped Land Cruiser
From the moment I arrived at Kasane to the end of my three weeks in Chobe and Moremi, Vincent and his team made my Botswana adventure perfect! Everything was perfectly organised and I felt very comfortable and confident the whole time. Vincent was very attentive and informative and put together the perfect self drive safari you could wish for.
Some of the campsites are admittedly a bit basic, but personally I love that! But, they were always clean, and the staff friendly and helpful.
One experience that I do need to share, was at South Gate. You will read in your notes that you need to be careful at the campsites at night, as there are no fences and they advise driving to the ablution blocks where possible, as wildlife will often wander through the sites. Well, I can say with certainty that this is good advice! Please see attached photos, a pride of Lion decided that they would much rather wander and play in the campsite rather than go around it! You can see my sleeping bag, that was hanging on the ladder the my tent, to give you perspective!
I also had a troop of Elephant wander though in Savuti, and Hippos in Kwai. So, if you need to pee, do not wander in the dark to the toilets!
All this made my adventure all the more wonderful!!, if sometimes intimate with the local wildlife! To sit in my tent, and watch the Elephants wander by in the dark, was a truly life changing experience!
I can’t thank Vincent enough for his great planning, and wonderful hospitality during my stay. I will be back next year, to see you and do it all again!
