A trip of a lifetime with the most experienced Guides
5/5

African Jacana Safari Tours is citizen-owned safari company started by Gideon Kamutati, one of the most experienced Guides in Northern Botswana. Gideon and his Sales & Reservations Manager Gally helped me to organise the tour for our group (8 persons) very professionally. They promptly replied back on every email, provided me with a helpful informations about the safari, guided us very smoothly with incredible efficiency and patience through the decision making process. Their itinerary fulfilled all our needs for a very competitive price. Upon arrival, Gideon and Gally were expecting us at the airport and we started our incredibly memorable 14-days mobile Safari trip. The tour exceeded all our expectations. Everything was organised perfectly. Pickups and transfers were on time. We spent 3 days on a lonely island in the Okavango Delta with boat cruises in the traditional mokoro boats. We visited Moremi, Savuti and Chobe –very diverse and amazing areas in Botswana. The beautiful landscape and the amount of wildlife we saw in each place were just amazing. We spent our days with game drives and breathtaking encounters with wild animals. The huge value of an experienced professional guide is. that he will bring you at the right time to the right place. By reading their tracks, Gideon guided us very close to the predators, elephants and hippos. We felt entirely safe, because he knew their habits so well. Gideon shared his tremendous knowledge, deep understanding and respect of the nature with us. We learned a lot about wildlife and the ecologic system and about the people of Botswana. When we returned from our game drive in the afternoon to our beautiful campsites, we were welcomed by Daddy, our camp manager and our chef Wilson with coffee and tea. Our tents were clean, spacious and very comfortable. We enjoyed the luxury of a private bathroom in the back of our tent, foldable beds and mattresses, sheets and pillows, warm water and the freshly baked bread in the morning. Wilsons meals were delicous. It was a real pleasure to spend our time with Wilson, Daddy and Gideon, watching „bush TV“ around the campfire, talking, laughing and singing together. It was hard to say goodbye!
We highly recommend African Jacana Safari Tours. These guys are extremely professional, friendly, environmentally-conscious and caring. Support local entrepreneurs in Botswana and have your trip of a lifetime!

SAFARI AT ITS BEST- Thanks Lucky!!!
5/5

Our first experience with African Jacana and definitely not the last. Our 14 day tour to Okavango was organized by Lucky who was always reliable, communicating at all times, friendly and patient with us. We did not have a clue of what camping is, but with his knowledge all became possible. I highly recommend African Jacana Safari Tours for any Botswana Safari. They are knowledgeable, veteran guides who have been working in the safari over 20 years, approachable and receptive. If you want to visit Botswana I highly recommend them, keep it going Lucky!!!

Best Safari Operator we ever had!!
5/5

The excellent safari service!!! With my friends we went on a 14 day safari in tended camp with Lucky and his team. From the day we started communicating through emails until we met at Maun airport, it has been a wonderful journey, difficult to express in words the amazing, unique feelings we have experienced. The tour organizer Lucky has always been reliable and communicating well responding to our emails everytime we need clarification, everything was perfectly organized and managed, with professionality and much passion. Gideon is an excellent guide, makes you live the African life as nobody else can do. he knows everything about wildlife and share his knowledge as well as interesting anecdotes while driving during the day and chatting around the fire in the evening. Our chef Wilson prepared for us amazingly delicious food every day, always attentive to our taste and needs. the experience of the tended camp allow to really feel the beauty of the nature....Thanks a lot Lucky for the wonderful safari experience. All the best

Unforgettable Experience
5/5

We spent 2 weeks in the wilderness together with the 3 most awesome companions you could wish for on a trip like this. We felt safe at all times, saw all of the big 5, learned alot about the animals and the country of Botswana and felt at home in the bush due to Bens knowledge and openness, Wilsons DELICIOUS food and positivity and Daddies hospitality, and funny character. Any insecurities that we had bevore we started our trip to botswana instantly went away the second we first met Lucky and the crew! There was no doubt that these two weeks were going to be one unforgettable experience. And so it was. Thanks to everyone who made this possible.

This tour was simply fantastic - perfectly planned and realized - and with a wonderful team!
5/5

We travelled as a family (parents and 3 teenagers). It was a 15 day tour (starting at Maun, through the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Nxai Pans, Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango Delta, Khwai Concession, Savuti and Chobe National Park, transfers to Victoria Falls) in August 2018 – our first safari experience – suggested in a similar fashion on the company’s webpage but adapted (very flexibly!) to our own wishes. The communication with Lucky on behalf of the company was extremely friendly and efficient, without complications or misunderstandings. All services offered in the contract were realized to our full satisfaction.

The tour itself was absolutely amazing – exceeding all our expectations! We saw so many different aspects of Botswana’s amazing landscape and wild life and experienced it in various ways (game drives, boat and mokoro trips, scenic flight, bush walk) - unforgettable! The team that accompanied us (Ben, Wilson, Daddy; also Lucky and Gideon joined at some places) was wonderful. Ben is the best safari guide we could have imagined – he has a huge knowledge on so many aspects of the safari animals and nature, and his great experience and patience in searching also for the rare animals made us see essentially all of them!!! Wilson’s cooking over the fire was delicious! The tents and all infrastructure – up to the bucket showers – were nice and convenient. Sitting around the fire in the evenings – taking about God and the world – was exciting and a wonderful experience. The 15 days passed much too quickly; saying good bye was hard as we had all become friends.

VERRY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
