Will go above and beyond to give you the best experience ever.
I haven't been on many tours in my life, I generally prefer to self drive and make my own way, but this experience has definitely convinced me of the importance of having a great operator and guide.
Monametsi met with us the night before at our accommodation with our guide Patrick to answer any questions we had which made us feel very comfortable. The whole team did everything they could to make our holiday the best experience.
This really was the best holiday we have ever had and we can't wait to go back to Botswana. It is such a beautiful country and it's people made us feel welcome and safe while travelling. We travelled with a family group of 6 adults, and really feel that Moonstroll is the best way to travel through Botswana and an affordable option for those who don't have a 5 star lodge, private plane budget. And the quality and volume of the game sightings on a mobile safari is much better than those flying between lodges and going out on day drives.
We had interactions with animals like none of us had experienced before. Our guide was very skilled at tracking and locating game and always made us feel safe. We saw all of the animals we wanted to see, even the sneaky honey badger and chance sightings of bat eared fox and serval cat.
There are always hiccups when travelling out in the bush, it cant be helped when you are getting into really remote and disconnected areas. The difficulties bring the community together and really make the experience an adventure. We saw plenty of broken down vehicles and we stopped to help every single one.
The food was always good (thanks Captain), the attention to detail from our tents/beds to the setting of the table was next level (thank you Howard, Partner and Goody), and the game drives were indescribable.
Can't wait to go back.

To be honest, it was our first experience and speaking with the Moostroll Manager I explained what me and my family were looking for and our badget ...now we can say that we received more that what we expected !!!
MR. Ben , the guide and his camp team were always on time about the day schedule because they were well prepared with food with water with the camping gear leaving my family the perfect timing to enjoy the space around . Ben is a well trained guide over 17 yrs through this amazing country , he knows about the history of the country and all about the animal world that you can and can't see during the journey . Chef cooked 3 meals a day in a heavy black solid pans on the wood fire so the food is really taste special to get you defenetly into the magic place where you are . Thanks to All , thanks Mr, Monametsi ...you and your team deserve more than what i could wrote but I wish you to bring more people in your tour in order to receive better comments Buona Fortuna Frankie Fede Pietro e Giovanni

Moonstroll provided an Extraordinary safari experience while being attentive to all our needs.
Dear Monometsi and Ben,
Just wanted to write to express my deepest thanks for the fantastic 10-day Okavanga Delta Safari you provided to me, my daughter, son-in-law, and 6 year old grand twins.
It was a marvelous adventure to camp comfortably, eat wonderful meals by Enoch, and travel around your beautiful Botswana seeing extraordinary wildlife.
Ben was the best guide, teacher, driver and friend. The little boys just loved him and would say to us after the tour many times, “I loved Ben”. He was patient with us, was so knowledgeable, was funny, a good storyteller, let us watch animals for as long as we wanted, and always made us feel safe even when the lion roared in the night. My favorite siting was finding the leopard mom and cubs asleep under her antelope stash tree so early that morning, just as Ben said she would be there.
We saw totals of 43 lions, 5 cheetahs, 5 leopards, roans, a sable, ostrich, wild dogs, hyenas, beautiful birds, crocs and hundreds of Cape buffalo, hippos, elephants, giraffes, zebras, and of course a favorite, the Guinea fowl!
Thank you for providing us the opportunity to learn about your world. Thank you for finding us rooms on that arrival day after our lodge reservation had been cancelled and driving us to dinner.
I will certainly recommend Moonstroll safaris. I wish you all the success you deserve.

We booked a 9 day tour with Monametsi for Botswana. Honestly, we were skeptical about it initially as we had no reference. But when we spoke to him over phone we felt comfortable. He answered all our questions and assured us about everything. Once we arrived in Maun, Monametsi and our driver came to pick us up at the airport and our adventure began. We had the best crew members with us. Our driver/guide Thuso was one fearless man who made sure that we explore everything. Our chef Gotata cooked delicious meals for us every single time and always served us with a warm smile and love. We are vegetarian and they made sure that we got best vegetarian meals possible in the wild. Our camp helpers Kennedy, Howard and Heity were always there to help. They all made sure that our stay with them was comfortable and enjoyable.
I would highly recommend Moonstroll safari for your adventure in Botswana.

All our expectations were met over and above. We had an amazing experience.
This is part of what we wrote to Moonstroll: "Hello Mr Monametsi,
I wanted to say how much we've enjoyed our safari. You have an amazing country and a fantastic wildlife. You offered us a great variety of ways to see it and enjoy it. Day and night drives, walking, boating, flying, amazing! We had the fantastic experience of being part of nature whith the necessary comfort supplied to us by you chef and the good and willing assistant.
And, of course, the one and only Ben: a guide so knowledgeable, reassuring, good driver, pleasant and helpful.
Thank you so much!"

Mr. Monamatsi is someone you can trust. Moonstroll is legit.
We were well taken care of on Our 10 day safari. With an experienced guide, an excellent cook and a happy tent person we never had a to lift a finger except for holding on for dear life on the endless game trails and dirt roads in our landcruiser.
Food was good, the tent comfortable, the shower nice and hot, the toilet better than you may expect.
Botswana’s animals were the most healthy and numerous.
Victoria falls was amazing.
The safari was a wonderful adventure. Thank you Moonstroll.

The crew (guide, cook, and two more) were hardworking, professional, and super people.
We were on the 7-day Moremi/Okavango/Chobe safari and it was the travel experience of our lives. The crew (General, Hotata, Kennedy and Howard) were simply wonderful, and friendly and fun to be with. General is a top-notch guide and we especially appreciated his knowledge of birds, not to mention his ability as a tracker, teacher and driver. Hotata's food, all cooked over wood fires in our wilderness campsites, was excellent, and the crew just took care of everything. These national parks are world treasures, a redoubt of the old, wild Africa and a tremendous credit to the people of Botswana. We would recommend this safari to anyone, with the caveat that you must be prepared for camping a bit in the rough and be physically up to long, bouncy rides in the Land Cruiser.

Moonstroll gave us a truly awesome safari trip, up close to the animals that we'll remember for life
We were a group of 5 adults & 4 teens and can honestly say one of the best holidays we have ever had. Our guides/drivers Ben & Help were super - very knowledgeable and even when you heard an animal scream in the distance during dinner were only to eager to jump in the trucks with you to investigate. The food was good too (considering all done on a camp fire) and especially enjoyable with big camp fires and even the odd animal wandering through camp. The tents were decent quality and bedding much more comfy than expected. Spending 2 nights in each camp meant that when you weren't travelling to the next destination you had lots of times to relax during the day in before heading out animal spotting first thing in the morning or evening.
As for the animals - just amazing - we literally saw everything that we wanted and so much more from a young litter of wild dogs and baby hyenas, to right up close to crocs and elephants crossing rivers; to a huge pride of lions feasting on a baby elephant carcass to the elusive jaguar and feeling the vibration of a male lion roaring. Even in our tents at night you could hear all the night-time animals, so very close by but we always felt safe. Lastly, the birds too were also incredible from large eagles to beautiful storks and smaller birds.

An incredible and authentic experience in Botswana
We did a 7 night camping trip staying at Moremi, Savute, Kwai and Chobe River Front. Followed by 2 nights at Vic Falls. Moonstroll took care of every detail and it was an incredible holiday. certainly a trip of a lifetime. We took our kids age 14 and 12. It was the most authentic and incredible way to go on safari. It was the 4 of us, our guide Ben, who was very knowledgeable and had such a beautiful passion for the bush, animals and conservation. A team of 4 would look after everything, put up and take down the tents, provide us with most wonderful food all cooked on an open fire. We have home made fresh bread every day! We saw hundreds of animals and birds. We learnt so much, we also learnt how humans and wild animals live together in harmony. We had close up experiences with elephants, lions, hyena, leopard, lots of different antelope, hippos and much more. If like me, you are finding it hard to decide which company to choose. I would not hesitate to recommend Moonstroll, take the plunge and get it booked. Monametsi who organises everything. Was fantastic and very communicative. Book direct and pay by transfer, that way the local company does not lose funds in commission and you liaise with Monametsi direct and get to build up a relationship. If you are up for a truly authentic experience. Moonstroll tick every box. We had a hot shower set up for us, our camp loos were a closed in area at the back of the tent which worked really well. We had comfy camp beds. Our packed lunches on our moving days day meant that got to lunch at remote and stunning locations with just us and Ben our guide. There is nothing quite like camping in the wild in comfort. We loved every minute of our trip and felt safe and well cared for by Moonstroll. They all work so hard to ensure we had an awesome holiday.
Our experience was everything we had dreamed of.
Moonstroll was amazing and accomodating from start to finish, creating a safari that fit our needs.
Ben, our guide was super knowledgeable and taught us so much about all the wildlife. He was an experienced and talented tracker and managed to find Lions every day on our 4day safari, we even saw a leopard. Ben was great company and shared great stories around the dinner table.
The chef was super talented with all the amazing meals she could cook over the fire, the food was amazing.
I will definitely go on another safari with Moonstroll in the future and would highly recommend them.
