Good tour with a couple caveats

Good tour with responsive staff. Boteti camp provides a nice winderness feel with comfortable tented rooms and washrooms. Caveat is that Moremi Game Reserve is 2.5 hours away (one way), which we overlooked when booking (our fault). When booking, know that your safari day will be tiring because you have to leave at 5 am.

Well organised but overpriced

We had an overall great experience with Mzansi. Our stay at Boteti river lodge was great and the activities were nice. The food was likewise good and the staff friendly, but considering we weren’t even 48 hours there, the price was simply too high for Botswana.

Overall I enjoyed my safari, however, I probably wouldn't book this particular tour again.

This safari package is more budget-friendly than other options, so please keep that in mind as you read about my experience. The lodge was supposed to have WiFi, but the WiFi was broken or there were WiFi issues during my the entire stay. So no WiFi for 5 days, despite it being promised which was a huge disappointment and very inconvenient. The food at the lodge was mediocre at best, with several menu options being unavailable for the entirety of my 5-day stay which was another bummer. I also had issues with hot water in my room, and I really didn't have a decent hot shower (with consistent hot water) for my entire stay, despite talking with the staff there and claiming to have addressed the problem; even when I did have hot water, the water temperature was extremely inconsistent, and the water would go from scalding, burning hot to freezing cold. Again, this safari package was reasonably priced for the excursions included, so I didn't go into my experience expecting luxury. However, the issues mentioned above did have a negative impact overall on my view of the lodge itself. The safari itself was extremely memorable and mostly wonderful, full of memories I'll cherish for a lifetime!

No customer relationship

As usual, I was extremely busy prior to my travel so did not have the time to check what the requirements were for entering Botswana. The tour operator should have had the foresight to inform me of the requirements. We are fully vaccinated but did not realize that we had to print or produce our vaccination certificate at the airport. We had to pay R2000 to get our PCR tests done prior to travel. This added expense could have been avoided had the tour operator taken the time to inform us of this.

Good service

The service provided was very satisfying via emails - I always had good answers and replies and on time

But I was disappointed at the hotel as I was reassured the room was comfortable with a queen bed : I got a family bedroom with poor sanitary conditions as it was very dirty hotel and the pool was disgusting

The agency service was good
