Tour Reviews

Review by Henrique Vollmer:

Just thought I’d drop you a note to let you know how the trip had gone…
It was really spectacular! Thanks for your tips and suggestions; i think the Botswana was just right for what I was looking for.

The tour was great; the group was a nice set of people from different nationalities and the guide was awesome (Wayne Westland). He really managed to get us into the whole bush and wildlife scene!

Review by Irene Grimwader who traveled Botswana Overland:

I had a wonderful time! It was a tiny group – just a young couple from Denmark and the guide(s) and myself. The Lodges were all comfortable, the camping very well organized, the guides just great, and we saw all of the big 5 except the rhino – plus African Painted dogs, Sable Antelopes, and so many more. The whole trip was very professionally done, without losing any enthusiasm which we all shared.

Review by Helena D who traveled Botswana Overland:

We just came back to Sweden after a couple of amazing weeks down on your continent. Just wanted to thank you for recommending the Botswana camping safari- those days were some of the most amazing in my life.

Everything was perfect. The tour plan, the guide, etc. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is not TOO afraid of the camping part of it (I do not normally consider myself a camping person). The fact that we stayed in campsites rather than lodges really brought us close to nature. I loved every bit of it. The trip also has a very authentic feel to it- we never felt just part of the big tourist wheel. You can quote me on this :-)

Review by Steve M who traveled Botswana Overland:

This is such an incredible Botswana adventure that allowed us to not only see and experience local culture, but also allowed us to see some of the lessor traveled National Parks that Botswana has. We had some amazing animal sightings that words may not begin to put into perspective. But one of the nice things that you don’t always know about this tour, it is the perfect combination of camping and accommodation, which gave us some more time in the National Parks to do more extensive game drives and let me rest my head on a comfortable bed on certain days throughout the tour… AWESOME!!!!!

Review by Lukas and Klara who traveled Botswana Overland (sourced from operator) :

I would like to give a big thanks to your team! We have been to Botswana wildlife camping tour during Christmas time and it was the lifetime experience for us! We never had a chance to be so close to the wildlife!
Our guide, Paul, was a great guy! Always optimistic with the smile on his face but still very professional. He provided excellent services in terms of driving, cooking, sharing his experiences with wildlife and all other stuff. We had a lot of funny moments with him! It was also a great pleasure for us to meet the other guys who took care of the camping stuff during wildlife camping in National Parks.

Review by Johannes who traveled Botswana Overland (sourced from operator) :

Fantastic tour guide with a brain like a library on animals, nature and history and a lot of love for the local people. We leave him as a friend.

Review by Veronique who traveled Botswana Overland (sourced from operator) :

I enjoyed the adventure very much and thanks to our guide Arnold I now know so much more about Southern Africa. Thank you very much for the memorable tour.

Itinerary

Day 1: Maun, Botswana

As soon as you arrive in Maun, you will meet up with the rest of the group at the Maun Lodge. A wonderful bird watching experience can be enjoyed from the Lodge – the wide Boteti River offers wonderful views. Hippo grunts will lull you to sleep tonight.

Distance: 30 km

Day 2 – 3: Okavango Delta, Botswana

Leaving the lodge early in the morning, we return to Maun before turning left and heading to the famous Okavango Delta.

We will begin our journey into the centre of the Delta by motorised boat and then by the traditional form of transport, a mokoro. After a few hours travelling through the narrow waterways of the Delta to our exclusive wild island camp in the middle of the wilderness. We will stay here for the next two nights and discover nature by foot and by mokoro. Here we can enjoy the calm and tranquil area far away from any civilisation.

We enjoy our time here exploring the area where local guides educate us about the animals and plants that call the Delta home. We will also have time to learn about the locals way of life in this wilderness.

Additionally, we will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the views over a glistening lagoon while sipping on cold drinks from a beautiful wooden deck, or savor a refreshing dip in the pool. An afternoon cruise on a boat at sunset is a relaxing way to end the day

Accommodation: Twin bedded tented units (No linen – sleeping bag required)
Included Highlights: Okavango Delta, Motswana Guided Game walks in the Delta, Mokoro Excursion in the Delta, Sunset Boat Trip

An early start sees us heading back to civilisation. We arrive in Maun in the afternoon where we will get some fresh supplies. There is an optional activity available for those wanting to enjoy a scenic flight over the delta.

Distance: 480 km

Days 5 – 8: Flexible Game Reserve Schedule (Moremi/ Savuti), Botswana

We will prepare ourselves for a game viewing trip using our vehicle to get into the wilderness, passing remote villages along the way. These 5 days will be spent in different game reserves as we follow in the footsteps of the migrating animals.

The tour will be quite flexible, but here is an example of what we will do: Start in Moremi where we will camp near the popular 3rd Bridge and fall asleep to the howling of the hyena or the roaring of a lion (which will most likely wake you up!). Then we will head off to Xakanaxa for a night of camping near North Gate. Plenty of game drives will allow you to explore this area. Then we will head to Savuti for more game drives and close encounters with game. We advise you to keep your fruit well hidden from roaming elephants, and the mean from hungry hyenas. You will find that the vegetation constantly changes and we will go from open plains to marshland and dense mopane and acacia trees. We may also take a turn into the Central Kalahari Reserve or the Makgadikgadi Pans.

Our camps will be in lovely private sites where we make sure we only leave our footsteps behind. A support vehicle will be going ahead of us to set up camp so that you have more time to enjoy your surroundings.

Meals: Breakfast x4, Lunch x4, Dinner x4
Accommodation: Wild Camping – Two man dome tent
Included Highlights: 4×4 open vehicle game drives on all days, Private non-fenced campsites, Extensive first hand game viewing experience, Explore the heart of National Geographic’s photography region
Distance: ± 125 km (Day 7)

Day 9: Maun, Botswana

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Included Highlights: Game Drive on the way out of the park
Distance: ± 200 km – 300 km
