Our first trip with Mashihabe but definitely not our last
Communication was great. As far as expectations, didn't know what to expect but was absolutely blown away.
Loved every aspect of the safari, from our tour guide Ant, to the local guides in Zimbabwe & Botswana.
Very one on one
In the main exceeded our expectations.
The Safari was excellently planned and everything went to plan.
I felt that we spent too much time travelling from A to B on some very bad roads. Some days were very long and tiring and the Land Rover was nearing its' "use by date".
Iconic experiences with a safari guide at the top of his game
The four week tour started in Johannesburg then went north through Kruger to the Matapos Hills in Zimbabwe, north to Victoria Falls then across to Botswana. We went south through Chobe NP to Moan then up to the Okavango Delta then flew in a small plane over the Delta back to Moan. We went East to the Tulie Game Reserve then made the long drive back to South Africa & to Johannesburg.
It was a spectacular itinerary and we saw everything we hoped to see.
Our Safari Guide, Anthony Waterford, was exceptional. He combined encyclopaedic knowledge with deep experience, a strong sense of care, and effective leadership. He was a very pleasant companion who has endless stories to tell. I haven’t experienced a better tour leader.
Communication with Masihambe was good, the vehicles were adequate, and the accommodation was interesting and comfortable. This tour is for people who can pitch in and help with cooking, and who are adaptable when plans change suddenly, or things go wrong.
A wonderful wildlife experience
From day one I was impressed with Mashihambe. All the reviews I read were actually true from Jude's regular, informative emails to Ant's legendary culinary skills! The main attraction, Africa, in all its shades did not disappoint. The landscape, the wildlife, the trees, the people were wonderful and 26 days passed all too quickly.
The tour was designed to experience different aspects of Southern Africa and every day brought new animals, new landscapes and new experiences. The accommodation was varied and always comfortable. From guest houses like home to unique resorts and cabins, everywhere we went we were met by smiling faces, soft beds and hot showers, no mean feat in the middle of the Kalahari, miles from anywhere!
The focus being wildlife, we spent hardly any time in towns and had opportunities every day do go on long game drives looking for animals. I never tired of it! Ant has had long years of experience and could answer every curly question I threw at him. He has an unquenched enthusiasm for everything African and his love of it all was highly infectious! And when I left my passport in a safe and didn't notice for 3 days, he seemed to know everyone in Botswana to get it back to me safe and sound.
A wonderful Experience
