2 days safari Moreni game reserve
Overall rating
4/5

We booked the tour with Mervelous. They have been very helpful and answered very quickly to our emails. We decided to do an overnight stay in the Moremi Game Reserve. We were supposed to be picked up at the hotel at 6 am at the first day but we were picked up at 8 am. They promised us to trop us off at the hotel the next day by 5 pm so we would have a long day at the game reserve. Unfortunately we had to leave the park at 11am according to the park rules. So actually we had to half day safaris and would not call it a two days game drive. But except of that the tour was amazing. We were by ourselves with a team of 3. They were all very nice, helpful and it was interesting to talk to them at the evening on the fire of our campsite. Everything was affectionately arranged from the dinner table to the tent. The food was delicious we even had some lunch on our way back to Maun. Our guide Gibson did a great job. He was so focused to show us lions, what he did in the end. From him we learned a lot about the animals and the nature of Botswana. We enjoyed our tour very much.

Wild life is Chobe at that time we are there ( 12 of June 2019 ) the animals are not so many and Cats we don't see , well many Elephants.

The rest of our Safari at Moremi , Sable Aley and Linyanthi ...it's many elephants , but the cats you must looking for them and some times are not that easy , because of the very thick bushes.

For us if we are favourite of the Big Cats ...exspecialy the Lions we like more SAVUTI ...as this place grear for Lions and Killing elephants !

KENYA and TANZANIA - are for us still The Best for Wild Life , and the p[rices for the accomodations are not so high as in Botswana !

The experience was exceptional!

The highlight was our guide Phillimon Kamogelo of Walking Stick Tours. He was knowledgeable, professional, and respectful. His eye for wildlife was magnificent, and the camping accommodations he provided us were quite comfortable. We travelled during the dry season, so the animals were plentiful at waterways, and the temperature was moderate. Our experience at the Nxai Salt Pan was unique! We enjoyed traditional African cuisine at our safari campsite and other accommodations. We especially liked the Old Bridge Backpackers and the Gweta Lodge.

Gems of the river and land
Overall rating
4/5

The experience was fantastic, we had a great guide. Everything went smoothly, including the frontiers. The river cruise is incredible, and well worth it. The land game drive not so much, we saw only impalas and elephants. But out guide was fantastic and tried to go as close as safety allowed and we were able to be very near the elephants.
The lunch was a buffet at a fantastic hotel, the food was delicious. The only thing is that we didn't have enough time to eat calmly, because time was short...
I totally recommend, although the price is very inflated (all Victoria Falls trips and area are, so, there's no other option)

Wonderful encounter with animals
Overall rating
5/5

It is worthy of being an animal kingdom. Animals can be seen everywhere. Living in three camps feels good. The outside is in harmony with the location, as if you are in the original environment. The interior is exactly the same as the luxury hotel in the city. The camp's service is first class. We then went to Namibia and felt that the level of camp service staff in Namibia was significantly lower.
China is a populous country. An animal kingdom like Botswana is invisible in China, so it is very attractive to the Chinese. However, if it can attract a large number of Chinese people to make appropriate adjustments, such as catering, almost all of the breakfast is cold food, not suitable for the Chinese stomach, Chinese people like hot food.
If SAFARIBOKINGS have a Chinese version of your webpage, it will definitely attract more Chinese people to visit and consult.

Amazing but now the government has reinstated elephant killing - tragic
Overall rating
3/5


We chose Botswana as a destination worthy of the additional expense due to their conservation and reputation. Safari Bookings and Desert and Delta were both top notch with excellent service. Tragically however the government has just reinstated elephant killings. These are smart and emotionally intelligent animals that understand who is attacking them. This is a safety issue in addition to the vulnerable status of African elephants. We will not return or support the decision to reinstate elephant killing.

Chobe National Park is a spectacular place that is a must.

5/5

We had a wonderful day trip to Chobe National Park. We saw many animals on the shore and in the Chobe river. From the early morning to late in the evening we saw: Elephants, Giraffes, Hippos, Buffalos, Antelopes, Warthogs, African Wild Dogs, Squirrels, and many many birds.
Our guide and all the local people that we met were very polite.

Overall rating
5/5

Botswana was a magical place. I have never been anywhere else in the world that was as transformative, inspiring or life changing as the trip to Botswana was. I was also there during shoulder season, and it felt like I had the whole of the Okavango Delta to myself. We saw lions, elephants, buffalo, wildebeest, and so much more. I urge everyone to go!
