Botswana

  • Dear Michele, I am emailing to let you know that we have had a wonderful holiday. Thank you for putting together an itinerary that provided us with the contrasts that we were looking for and also for ‘reading’ our tastes so well. We have had some great experiences and when we reached Sossusviei Desert Lodge I thought that I had died and gone to heaven. I cannot imagine that it could be bettered. Its location is picture perfect and I think it got our vote for the best rooms we have ever stayed in. Our second favourite place was Camp Kalahari. You rather ‘down sold’ this, and when one of my friends told me that she was going for a second time to Jack’s Camp I felt a little envious (although having looked at the prices for Jack’s Camp I can see that it would have added considerably to the cost). However in the event the experience here was really memorable and we could not see how it could have been improved upon. We were very glad that we decided to do the Grey Matters excursion, we never thought that we would get so close to an elephant and learn so much about them. We weren’t as enthused by Stanley’s lodge as the other accommodation. However staying at Stanley or the sister camp is the only way of doing Grey Matters and we would not have wanted to have missed that. All the arrangements worked like clockwork and we enjoyed the connecting flights by light aircraft, the flights to and from Sossusviei stand out in particular. So thank you again for providing us with a spectacular holiday.

Beach Extensions

Beach extensions to a Botswana safari

Botswana is a land-locked country and does not offer any kind of obvious ‘relaxation’ options above and beyond some extremely comfortable and exclusive safari lodges. If you wish to end you safari with such a lodge, where you can enjoy sitting, reading, sleeping, eating, sunbathing and gazing as opposed to rushing about on activities, then this is easy to engineer.

Alternatively, you could end your holiday with a few nights on the Upper Zambezi near Victoria Falls in Zambia, in the Namib Desert of Namibia, or even Cape Town in South Africa, all of which will offer the potential for a more relaxing final section to your trip, whilst still enjoying a new and incredible experience.

If you are looking for a traditional beach destination to combine with Botswana, then many amazing beach locations can be comfortably reached via Johannesburg in South Africa, including Mozambique, Mauritius, The Seychelles, the South Africa coast and Zanzibar (Tanzania).
