Brilliant holiday - we were looked after at every step and received the finest service

This holiday was just incredible. We were overcome by Martin's incredible knowledge of the area and its people. The staff he sent with us were first rate and obviously highly experienced. We were in breathtaking country and always felt safe and well provided for. Martin's experience as a pilot in the African bush certainly has served him well. If we do another Safari, it will be with Kingfishers.

A trip of a lifetime, organized and executed to perfection

For our honeymoon we booked with Kingfisher Safaris a 6 night Safari. (3 nights in the Khwai Tented Camp in the Okavango Delta and 3 nights in the Linyanti Expedition Camp).

The booking experience with Martin from Kingfisher Safari was perfect. From the initial quote to the final booking he was always helpful with information as well as super quick and responsive. The Safari was organized perfectly.

On the ground in Khwai the experience was great. Getting of from the airplane and directly on a safari, we had great encounters with so many wild animals (lions, elephants, wild dogs, leopards and many more) on every single game drive, we could not imagine (to be said this was out first trip to Africa). The camp itself was amazing, from the service, friendliness of the staff, room facilities to the food. They truly make your stay unforgettable.
In Linyanti, the location and views are just stunning. The wildlife and landscape was totally different. Impressive were the large herds of buffalo and elephants were amazing. Unfortunately, in this area cats are very rare to encounter, but we have seen so many in Khwai so that was not an issue.

Thank you again for making our trip so amazing and special and we can recommend Kingfisher Safari to book an amazing Safari for you.

An extraordinary adventure in a beautiful country with wonderful wildlife and fantastic people

The safari was absolutely brilliant and Gibson was a fantastic guide and superb host. Temptation is a brilliant cook/chef and Kantake was really helpful. Everyone was so friendly and there is nothing even slightly bad we can say about our experience apart from air botswana not being very accurate with their flight times so we got there quite late but that was part of the experience. The organisation from Kingfisher Safari's end was first class. Hope you can pick up from this that we were really happy and would definitely do it again.

Outstanding mobile camping trip to Botswana with an exceptional safari guide.

I'm used to sorting travel independently but chose to use an agent for this trip to the Okavango delta region. I couldn't get what I wanted from some 'big name' agents so turned to Kingfisher. What a fantastic decision that was. Kingfisher are small but hugely knowledgeable and responsive. Martin was a bush pilot in Botswana and Pilot (the Botswanan Guide) is probably one of the top two or three guides in the country. The 9 night mobile camp trip utilised camp sites only available to Botswana Guides Association members and they were in superb locations with just one group per site - so you really were 'in the bush'. The tents were comfortable with bucket showers and long drop loos. The food was excellent and the staff hugely willing and friendly. All the game drives were in a well converted Toyota Landcruiser. Pilot was an exceptional guide with superb tracking skills and a deep knowledge of the parks and the animals that meant that time and again we arrived in the right place at the right time - it was not by chance. Having found a Cheetah one morning Pilot said - we'll go to that termite mound as he'll stop there... And he did. No zoom lens needed. This was a case of an experienced professional guide adding huge value to anything we could have done on our own. In terms of booking and organisation Martin was responsive and patient and the pricing seemed very fair. On the ground everything ran smoothly and the transfers after the trip to and from Vic Falls were professional and comfortable.

I will be using Kingfisher and Pilot again for any adventure we plan for sub-Saharan Africa. They have a local knowledge that will turn any trip into something extraordinarily special.

Tailor made once in a lifetime adventure!

We had an absolutely incredible time in Botswana on a 9 night tented safari. From start to finish everything was perfect, Pilot our guide was one of the nicest people you will ever meet and he worked tirelessly to make our trip so enjoyable. We were blessed with big cat sightings on nearly every drive, a highlight watching a leopard chase a cheater away from its kill! Pilot was hugely knowledgeable and always seemed to know exactly where to position the jeep for the best sightings, the animals seemed to simply walk right over to us! The food at camp was delicious, we all wish we could have taken the cook home with us to the UK.
All the airport transfers ran very smoothly and the entire trip was hassle free. We hope to be back in the near future.
