Excellent service, superb game viewing and seamless transition from Safari to Gorillas
5/5

This was my second Safari thru Gondwana Tours and once again it was fantastic. Communication with Mark is very easy, he listens to your requirements and offers suggestions and then puts together an itinerary for you. This adventure was a little different since we were doing a safari in Kenya and Gorilla Trekking in Uganda. Everything went off without a hitch and the local partners in Kenya and Uganda were excellent. Game viewing at Porini Lion Camp was amazing, a pride of 20 lions, cheetahs and leopards amongst the cats.

Gorillas viewing was the highlight of our trip and the service and care we got, when my friend broke her ankle was outstanding.
Have been recommending Mark to a lot of friends now.

Mark Hathaway of Gondwana planned an excellent and seamless Botswana tour for us
5/5

Mark’s progression of our trip from Victoria Falls to Kasane to the Okavango Delta was well planned.

To some extent our venues were dictated by availability, and maybe we would have enjoyed alternate venues as much, but it worked out marvelously well. In retrospect, I would not want to have visited Victoria Falls without staying at the Victoria Falls Hotel. I enjoyed staying in that Edwardian colonial hotel almost as much as the Falls. Likewise, in Kasane, one day in the Garden Lodge, and two days at Pangolin was perfect, but I would not have wanted the full three days at either. And then to be at Rra Dinare with only a few other guests (between 2 and 4 depending), basically alone in the concession, was wonderful, especially following the busier Chobe National Park.

The arrangements were virtually seamless. Flame of Africa was always prompt. All the transfers worked without a hitch or worry on our part and we were able to participate in both morning and afternoon events at each venue. We appreciated Rodney of Gondwana meeting us at Maun on our return. Our private (there were three of us) helicopter flight over Victoria Falls was great, as were our private game drives in the Okavango Delta, and our bush plane flight out of hte Delta.

Mark’s advance information was complete and very helpful. Even though the Visa process at the Victoria Falls airport is very poorly organized, the Flame of Africa driver waited for us without complaint. The Pangolin Lodge was a photographic safari for everybody. I wasn’t sure it would be my cup of tea, but it was great and improved the rest of the Botswana game experience. Despite all of the above, Gondwana's price was very reasonable in comparison to others.

Zimbabwe Adventure
5/5

The organisation, transfers, flights etc were excellent Victoria Falls hotel for the first 2 nights lived up to all expectations and of course the Falls were truly magnificent. Everything about Verneys Camp was superb - the staff, the accommodation, the food and good wildlife spotting there - including 2 male and 3 female lions and the 2 painted dogs in the Conservation Roan and Sable antelope and elephants at the water hole, with hyena etc. Rhino Camp at Matusadona was a bit disappointing. The Camp was run very well but there was no wildlife to see except elephants and impala. Zambezi Expeditions Camp was again the accommodation, guides and staff were everything you could wish for. We even saw 3 painted female dogs, 2 male cheetah and loads of elephants, impala, zebra etc.

All in all a good holiday but not the best safari we have been on in other African counties regarding wildlife.

Wonderful vacation and perfectly planned
5/5

We had great communication with Mark Hathaway from the very start. Mark was very patient with us, changing our itinerary to suit us and our price point and timeline. He was very knowledgeable about all of the lodges and camps that we planned to stay at and gave us pros and cons for each. Everything was planned to the tiniest detail. Our vacation was outstanding and we can't wait to go back. When we do we'll be using Gondwana again.

Another great experience with Gondwana
5/5

We just returned from 3 days in the Motswari Private Reserve in SA. Once again, Mark and team organized an incredible trip! I can't say enough about the safari staff and their unending effort to make our stay wonderful. We saw so many animals, that I literally have to try to remember on which day we first saw a leopard eating its "fresh kill" , a lion pride, the pack of wild pups being fed by their mother, or the mama elephant nursing her baby. Our guide and tracker, Landon and Brian could not have worked harder to make sure we saw everything possible. The food was fantastic, as was our accommodation. This is our 2nd trip with Gondwana and I would highly recommend their company!!
