One word - AWESOME.

This is actually my second safari with Fred and Emmelyn, my first one was in 2012. Once again, my experience with them and with Tau Lodge was outstanding. Fred picked us up at our hotel in Gabs and dropped us off at the Lodge, helped us through the border and helped me when South Africa stamped my passport incorrectly. He and Emmelyn are friendly, professional, courteous, and outstanding. Next time I am in Botswana, I will definitely be booking with them again.

Extremely helpful from beginning, during and at completion of trip!

Savanna Safaris & Tours went out of their way to assist our work group to have safaris during our travels. In the beginning our dates of availability for Safari were limited and Savanna Safaris provided us several options from Kruger to the Kalahari. We ultimately decided on a South African preserve and the Okavango Delta. Emmelyn was our main contact during the entire process and she kept up with us during our visit to ensure all our needs were met. I'm recommending Savanna Safaris & Tours to our future teams that travel to Southern Africa.

Weekend trip to Madikwe

Emmelyn was unbelievably helpful, responsive, and accommodating. From start to finish she was available to assist with questions and suggestions. Emmelyn planned, coordinated, and booked a trip for myself and four colleagues from Gaborone, Botswana to Madikwe in South Africa. Our van showed up promptly as scheduled and our driver Frank escorted us through both countries' Customs and safely to Madikwe. We stayed at Tao Lodge which was unbelievable- even better and more luxurious than expected. The food was great, the lodging was perfect and the game drives were incredible!! We saw SO many animals with young including rhinos, lions, cheetahs, and tons of elephants! Would DEFINITELY use Safari Tours again, it took so much of the stress out of planning a trip! Can't recommend Emmelyn enough!

Excellent organization and relationship.

The Agency has never disappointed us. We used it once for a trip for ourselves, but we recommended it several times for visiting friends, and they have always provided top notch service.

we would like to Congratulate Emmelyn for all her assistance before and during our wonderful safari

Except some delay departure and some change on our program at Chose Lodge and park, everything was perfect: the excursions at Chose (even if we did not see leopard, cheetah), by boat and by jeep were a very good introduction and experience to the fabulous wildlife of the Okavango.
The room , the restaurant, the food , the staff made our stay perfect.
We very much enjoy the good experiences of flying to our next destination to Moremi crossing .
This tent-camp was so quite and the very warm welcome of the staff, the management and our guides was fantastic.
Botswana government is very wise to protect this wonderful nature far from our different worldwide pollution.
It was extraordinary to discover all this nature , those animals- mammals and birds, trees and shrubs- living together in this huge reserve.
Our excursions by walking. tracking. by kokomo and boasts are unforgettable.
A wonderful time to celebrate with good friends our fourty years wedding anniversary.
