Feedback on 14 Day Botswana Wilderness – we got engaged!

Hi Nicky

We would thank you guys for an amazing 14 Day Botswana Wilderness camping safari which we just finished. The trip was surpassing our best dreams!!

We would like to thank our guides Claudia and Wayne for all the effort they made to make this trip a memorable one. Nothing was too much and everything was done with a smile. Wayne is a very knowledgeable guide about local culture, nature, wildlife and the people. We enjoyed his humor a lot and he is doing his job very professional and enthusiast.

I was astonished by the beauty of the Delta and loved to propose to my girlfriend at this special place. When I asked Wayne for this favor he was very enthusiast and helped me to find a special place and a local guide to bring us to a beautiful pool with many birds. A perfect place for this special moment!!

It was a place hard to beat, perfect for this special moment! Charlene loved the setting and didn’t expect anything, so it was a great surprise! Africa was amazing, and this made it even more special. We will return to Africa for sure!

Thank you for all your great advice, and your patience – we had so many questions and you answered them all. It was the perfect trip for us, the wild camping was amazing and made it a more wild experience with hyenas, hippos and elephants in the camp and the sounds of lions in the distance. It was even better than we dreamed of!

The cooking of Claudia was amazing, healthy and every day a surprise. Her love for Africa was inspiring and her interest for birds and her knowledge about them was very interesting. Thank you guys and good luck with all your future travels! And Wayne, we hope Zambia will make it to the World Cup!

Thanks again and we will definitely advise you to our friends when they are planning their trip to Africa.

Kind regards,

Merijn and Charlene
