A Trip of a Lifetime - a polished safari ticking all the boxes.
5/5

We went on the Six-Day Lion Trail - Botswana for 2people. It started in Maun, Botswana and ended in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. We arrived the day before the start of the Safari. Were met at the Maun Airport by Liberty, our guide for the safari, and taken to Crocodile Lodge, that Skytheme Safaris had booked for us. There we met by Olorato Chombo,(Ozzi), the Director of Skytheme Safaris, who led us through the details of the safari and answered our questions about it, over a cool drink.

The next day we were picked up after breakfast at the lodge by Liberty and taken into town to buy our drinks and other shopping needs. We met our chef for the safari and he asked about our preferences for breakfast and other meals. My partner and I are both vegetarian and the chef had been advised in advance so was well prepared for this. After that we went back to the lodge and our suitcases were packed into our safari jeep. We set off on the road to Moremi Game Reserve. Even before we got near the reserve we had already seen a number elephants, giraffes and other wild animals. Liberty, our guide, was full of information and happy to stop along the way to let us excitedly take photos. When we arrived we were very impressed to find our camp had been completely setup and waiting for us. There was a was a spacious two-bed tent with a self-contained bathroom attached and a separate dining room where we relaxed and had a drink, before our first evening drive. The camp was pulled down and re-established in two other camp sights over the next 5 days by a team of three very pleasant men.

That was great start to the whole safari where we saw and learned about many wildlife including lions, elephants, crocodiles buffalo, leopards, hippos, wildebeest, warthogs and meany smaller animals as well. With just two of us in the 8-man jeep we had plenty of room and freedom to stop and start when we wanted to, always with the wisdom, freely given knowledge and amusement of Liberty, our guide.
Each day there were two drives, there was iced water and the drinks we had bought available in the jeep and a morning and sunset table set up along the drive. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were meticulously prepared and delicious. Dinners were served under the stars. We visited three very different areas, the Okavango Delta, Savuti swampland and Chobe National Park in the dryer north.

At the end of the safari we were picked met by a separate team to get us through the Zimbabwe border and spend 2 hours viewingthe astounding Livingston Falls before being delivered to the Livingston airport in time to catch an afternoon flight.

The whole safari and trip was seamlessly coordinated by Ozzi, Skytheme's director, including dealing with our unplanned one-day delay in arrival. My partner and I both agreed was a TRIP OF A LIFETIME!

SkyTheme and Liberty went above and beyond all expectations
5/5

My brother and I went on a 6 night camping tour through Botswana. The tour far exceeded our expectations and we saw all of the animals we set out to see. By the end of the first day we had seen everything. Liberty (our guide) was able to track the animals footprints and lead us right to what we were looking for. The camping setup was even better than we expected and the food was superb.

I would highly recommend Liberty and SkyTheme. I have been to over 115 countries and this was one of the best experiences that I have had.

dream safari with Olly's dream team
5/5

of the African Safari we took, this one delighted our family the most. My kids can't stop talking about this one because it's truly lives up to our expectation of what a real safari would be like: great guide, great viewing, great stories and wonderful experience all around.
Unlike the more commercially organized ones, Olly really know and loves the land and has passion for this. He led us to various places, started with animal foot prints and tracks, delighted us with so many animal viewings (and the birds too). Along with wonderful tales on some of the animal family sagas: the lions and the killings of cubs not belonging to them....the lonely buffalo....
Food is wonderfully cooked and the tents are set on great locations. Under the starry sky, we sat by fires and hear animal sounds, waking up in the morning to find footprints around the tents....but feel completely safe at the same time.
We enjoyed the boat ride as well....it has a good varieties of events, truly loved every minute of it.
Every team member is super friendly. My kids want to go back....of all the safari we went, this is the one they love and I agree....this one gives you a sense of wonder and discovery, not quite like a totally mass commercial production.
Highly recommended for the families and all animal/bird lovers....Olly really aims to show you the best of his country.

6-Day Lion Trail - amazing safari experience!
5/5

The most amazing experience! Olly, KB and Avaleno were absolutely superstars from the moment we met them...
We were travelling around Africa and went to Maun in Botswana to look for a specific safari through the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park, ending up in Kasane. We wanted as long as we could get for what we had to spend. Got some quotes from a number of companies and chose the 6-Day Lion Trail with Skytheme Safaris as the best option, and knew we had made the right choice from the very start! We booked it 2 days before we went - Olly came over to meet us in our hostel and took us into town to pick up some last minute supplies, while he spent the rest of the day making the arrangements for us. He even upgraded our tent after seeing how tall my boyfriend is, and gave us comfier beds and upgraded our campsite locations for better animal viewings for the time of year. KB was our guide and Avaleno our chef and both were absolute superstars - it was a real pleasure to spend the week travelling around the national parks with them. KB was incredibly knowledgeable about the animals and their behaviours, so he knew when to stop and watch some interesting things unfold (impala standing to attention looking in one direction - lions around the corner; lions chilling under a tree with elephants nearby - the elephants chased them off!) and Avaleno made a beautiful campsite every single night and kept us delightfully full with absolutely delicious food for every single meal - even when we had lunch on the road we stopped and set up the table complete with table cloth and all the condiments you can think of. He even made bread from scratch on the camp fire, which was so delicious, and a birthday cake! We saw so many animals (all the big 5 and the ugly 5), and felt really lucky to be able to do a longer than the usual safari at 6 days, which meant we got to sit and observe animal behaviours and interactions more, which was wonderful. We have thousands of photos! Thank you Olly, KB and Avaleno - cherished memories for us of our time with you in beautiful Botswana! xx
