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.

Overall rating

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.

Perfect first time safari experience!
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!

Breathtakingly Beautiful!
Overall rating
5/5

We visited 3 different camps in Botswana. As such experienced the rivers, plains & delta. Every experience was different but always magnificent. The people are warm and welcoming, the food high quality and the accommodations were excellent. Game viewing was phenomenal, not a boring day spent while visiting. We came away having seen up close and personal; crocodiles, hippo, vast amounts of hippo, wild dogs, hyena, lion, cheetah, leopard, buffalo, elephant, giraffe and lots of different antelope, but to name some of our favorites.
Our guides were personable and knowledgeable with a good amount of humor thrown in as a bonus!
We cannot wait to return to Botswana to do it all over again.

We had a three day trip to Chobe NP. Our Guide LT collect us at the boder and guided us through immigration.
We liked his quit and friendly way.
He was a great game spotrter: we`ve seen all the big five of Chobe and also all the small ones and birds.
Even it was not the high season for game drives, we had a great experience and feel lucky with Waterburg Safaris and the team of LT, Victor and Sydney.

Botswana is a magical place
Overall rating
5/5

We made a trip to the Okavango Delta and Chobe. Both are magnificent places. This was an experience of a lifetime for us which we will never forget. If you go to Okavango go to a camp that provides hiking safaris. This is the best part of all.
