Perfect tailor-made tented safari
5/5

We booked a tailor-made safari starting in Maun and ending in Victoria Falls with Sekanka and were happy we did. The itinerary was suited to our wishes. We traveled with just our family of 4 and loved spending time with the Sekanka team. Your guide Macha is always friendly and positive, Thalo the driver is super skilled. Even when driving through the most difficult terrains such as loose sand he managed to spot wild-life and made us feel safe with him. Neem is funny and a skilled chef. A great team to spend your safari with. Looking back, the only thing we would change is to stay in the same camp site for more than one night. The days we spend just one night in a camp sight were a bit too rushed with setting up and breaking down camp, since your team will do that. There is not a second team traveling ahead to take care of that like many of the larger companies do but the more family style and tailor-made tour that you get in return is very much worth that. Our favorite days were by far those in Xakanaxa area, such a stunning area were where were lucky enough to spot some rare game sights such as a leopard an wild dogs devouring their pray. We also enjoyed the Kasane Chobe boat tour a lot but in all honesty, the few days at the end at a comfortable lodge in Victoria Falls were a welcome change of scenery as well. Tents will be tents and despite the best efforts to make the tent as comfortable as possible, it will always be camping in a dusty environment. We had an amazing safari and anyone looking for a reference is welcome to contact me.

A unique and unforgettable experience
5/5

Okavango was on our bucket list and on short notice, Sekanka Safaris was able to organize and tailor an incredible camping safari from Maun to Xakanaxa and Khwai. Although we are seasoned safari-goers, this was our first minimalistic camping experience in the wilderness, as previously we slept in safari lodges or hotels.
Our guides Thalo and Ben delivered their services in an extraordinary, pleasant, and friendly manner. They made us feel at home, taking care of all aspects that would make our safari unforgettable. Everything was well organized from the onset, safe, with excellent guidance, explanations, and storytelling of the endless wildlife, flora, people, and local culture.

Great choice for seeing amazing animals and breathtaking landscapes
5/5

My wife and I enjoyed a 5 day Chobe safari with Thaloganyo Phetolo (Thalo) and Sekanka Safari. The timing was early June, during the beginning of the dry season, where the nights were very cool and the animals were plentiful. The safari focus was on the Chobe; the landscape, birds and animals. The focus was not on pampering guests. A couple of examples come to mind. While we were out looking for lions, we passed another group that had stopped for afternoon cocktail hour. We enjoyed the wildlife and they enjoyed their drink. Another example is we had cold breakfasts (actually the same breakfast we normally eat at home) so that we could get out early to see the wildlife as the sun rose. Sekanka offered the type of travel we prefer; out enjoying nature. As we looked into a safari with Sekanka, all our questions were quickly answered and, thanks to their flexibility, we were on a safari that matched our schedule and the regions of the Chobe we wanted to see. During the trip, Thalo and his team were very accommodating, working with us as we fine tuned the day’s activities each morning. The equipment was clean and in good condition. My only complaint was I wasn’t smart enough to select an 8 day stay in the Chobe. I recommend Sekanka as a great choice for those who enjoy being close to nature, sleeping in tents, and experience Chobe up close and personal.

Unforgetable experience, intimate and personalized safari with an awesome family-run team!
5/5

We can only strongly recommend Sekanka Travel and Tours Safaris. They prepared an itinerary perfectly fitting our needs and time constraints. Having no real safari experience we were somewhat uncertain how it would work out with our daughter (6 years) and camping in the wild. From the start the team made us feel very comfortable, safe and "at home." We loved every minute of it. Thalo went out of his way to make sure we would have the experience of our lifetime! Sometimes it is those small details which make a difference, like organizing marshmallows at the last minute for our daughter for the campfires. Low managed to always prepare wonderful food with the little extra touch. To see some of the more exotic wildlife you need luck, good timing, and a great guide. We had all of these! Thank you Lethi! All together a wonderful experience we will always cherish.

Moremi and Kasane – fantastic and memorable safari tours
5/5

We were a party of four (two couples) and booked an individual 5-day-tour with Sekanka Safaris. Communication was easy and professional.
On the day of our departure in Maun we were picked up at our accommodation by our guide Thaloganyo, who was the perfect guide with lots of knowledge about the area and animals. We then drove to the Moremi Game Reserve with our lodge for the stay located in Khwai. From our lodge we went on four safari tours which left us in absolute awe: Nature, scenery, and most of all these beautiful animals that we were lucky to see. Numerous giraffes, water buffalos, zebras, impalas, wart hogs, occasional hyenas. The highlight were definitely the majestical elephants everywhere (we love elephants) and on top of that we saw a pride of 24!!! lionesses feeding.
On day three of our tour we left Khwai and headed to Kasane. Here we did a little day tour to the Victoria Falls via Zimbabwe, which was a very lovely trip with a walk along the waterfalls. The next day we took a River Safari on the Zambesi River around Sedudu Island. This island is special, because it is always green and the animals have to cross a wide river to get there. This we were able to witness as a herd of elephants crossed the river in the evening to the mainland, with the bigger elephants supporting the smaller ones that could only lift their trunk out of the water.
The next day we then had the drive back to Maun which brought our memorable safari tour to an end.
Sekanka took care of everything: booking the lodges and cars, getting into the parks, food, etc.
Thanks to everybody, it was exceptional.
