One Indescribable Experience

Thank you Lucky, Gideon, Wilson and Dadee for an absolutely INCREDIBLE safari!!! The 12 days spent with you and the animals seen were outstanding. The accommodations were great, the food delicious and the experience unforgettable. I have only been home for 4 days and I am already itching to return. THANK YOU for a life changing experience and I can't wait to see you all again on another safari. To anyone reading this review, these folks provide an excellent safari and experience. You can not go wrong if you opt to choose African Jacana Safari for your Botswana safari.

"Excellent Safari Experience at its best"

Our fantastic trip with African Jacana Safari Tours team for 12 days November April 2018, Moremi, Okavango Delta, Khwai, Savuti Chobe & Vic-falls. Jack of all trades “Lucky”, thank you very much for the great camping experience you made possible for us. From the first email to the last time at the airport everything was well organized. Our thanks also goes out to the Chef, whos‘ delicious food we had the pleasure to enjoy as well, the „good spirit“ of the camp. It was my daughter s belated birthday and Lucky suggested that the chef take the elephant waste and decorate it into a cake with candles on top, after dinner we sang a song for my daughter and the moment she had to cut the cake she realized it was an elephant waste, what a moment!!! We will always remember that.
The Tents were very comfortable and the bathroom facilities were great.
Gideon, you showed and told us so many knowledge and interesting facts about the flora and fauna of Botswana. Inspired by you wildlife journal, for the first time I started to keep a checklist of all animal sightings. What a great idea! You are an excellent guide!
It was in Khwai t when we saw the first leopard. A special sight, for us and our cameras, was the by far most beautiful lion in Africa – what a beauty!
As before, Khwai took our breath away with its beautiful landscapes. A great located camp with Zebras, Wildebeests, Antelopes and Elephants all around us. I will never forget the moment during setting up the camp when an Elephant came by to watch with be just sitting barely 3 meters away – and we got the photo for agreat memory too.
In Savuti we had the luck to see the Savuti pride feasting on their prey, they just made a fresh kill, a buffalo. Thank you for showing us the beautiful group of old baobab trees that is not mentioned in any travel guide!
We were lucky to have been able to take so many great pictures.
Summary: reliable, efficient, very professional, excellent knowledge, delicious meals, very friendly, excellent tents and lots of fun!

We are looking forward to travel with African Jacana Safari Tours in 2019, Great thanks to you Lucky!!

beautiful day on mokoro boat trip with bush walk

We are not planners and arrived in Maun requesting a mokoro boat trip through the Okavango Delta for 2 for the following day. Not every company can do this but we were lucky to find African Jacana Tours with Lucky and Gideon and they were expeditious and courteous while booking in person, they even came to our campsite. They were very affordable, not only on time but early, and made us feel very comfortable and welcome guests. During the drive they were exceptionally friendly and offered lots of stories and answered any questions we had about Botswana. Our boat guide, Boca, was extremely knowledgeable and kind as well. we felt very lucky to meet him. If we were staying longer or booking more safaris in the future we would be sure to use their company again. Truly generous and inviting hosts with lots of great information!! Thank you so much for such a beautiful, relaxing, and wonderful afternoon!

Magnificent tour - professional team

Recently visited the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve, Savuti, Chobe and the Victoria Falls. Our semi Participation Camping Safari was perfectly organised by Gideon Kamutati and his awesome team.
Botswana offers a wide diversity of landscape, flora, and fauna. We had an unique journey and the most impressing experience with wild animals we have ever encounted. Thanks to the long-term experience of our guides we learned not only about the wilderness and the ecological system but also about the rich cultural traditions of the Batswana and their diligent and ongoing efforts to build sustainable conservation economies in their country.
It was a life-changing journey. Ke a leboga - a big thank you to Gideon and his staff, keep up the good work and see you again soon!

Great value and perfectly organized. Highly recommended!

We booked a Mokoro Tour with them and a few hours later Lucky showed up to brief us and provide us with useful information. Nothing was too much trouble for these guides, they really helped us and answered all our questions. At no point did we feel unsafe, everything ran smoothly. They are professionals who know how to adapt to the needs of a group and they did a marvelous job for us.

If you'd like to support the real people of Botswana, instead of another foreign company making money off the tourists, I urge you to set up your tour them.

To sum up this company provided us with a first class, prefect safari and at a reasonable price. I would not hesitate in booking with them again or recommending them to family and friends. You won't be disappointed with them.

A magical trip in Okavango delta

I've been lucky to make a safari with Gideon in Namibia and Botswana around the Okavango delta.
Thanks to his large knowledge on fauna and flora we have been able to see a lot of animals,mammals and birds and learn a lot about their way of life.
I appreciated the concern for the clients,the comfort and the nice food.All has been very professional.
You can choose that company and you'll come back with a lot of wonderful memories about a very beautiful country and its wild nature.

Excellent Safari experience! I strongly recommend

Our first experience with African Jacana and definitely not the last. Our 6 day tour to Okavango was organized by Lucky who was always reliable, communicating at all times, friendly and patient with us. We did not have a clue of what Moremi Game Reserve is, but with his knowledge all became possible. I highly recommend African Jacana Safari Tours for any Botswana Safari. They are knowledgeable, veteran guides who have been working in the safari over 20 years, approachable and receptive. If you want to visit Botswana I highly recommend them.
