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.

    Nigel, Ann and Emma travelled through Botswana and Namibia

    The Linyanti Region

    Pure, unspoilt, game-rich, wild Africa. Acres of remote wilderness split into various private concessions offering exclusivity, varied habitats and excellent big-game. One of the best places in Africa to see wild dogs.

    The Makgadikgadi Pans National Park and environs

    Vast salt pans surrounded by Kalahari grassland, offering a unique scenic experience with some very specific wildlife highlights, such as meerkats and brown hyaena. Greater flamingos and huge numbers of zebra are resident during the wet season.

  • Nxai Pan, Botswana

    A group of private reserves and concessions make up this dramatic and scenic region which offers some very good game-viewing and horse-riding safaris. Access is usually from South Africa.

    The central section of the Okavango Delta which is designated as a National Game Reserve. A beautiful region with excellent game-viewing and boat cruises, but not as exclusive as the surrounding private concessions.
