Great tour with more luxury than we had expected
5/5

We really enjoyed our 3-day tour in the Okavango delta with Shipungo. We had special dietary requirements that were met excellently by their chef Simon who made delicious food for us 3 times a day. All our needs were taken care of during the trip and we had a wonderful time. We were doubting whether this tour would be nice considering the significantly lower price compared to other tours. We do not regret chosing Shipungo though and can definitely recommend if you're also looking for a more budget trip in the Okavango delta.

Awesome
5/5

Me and my crew went on a boat ride with Oarabile, what a beautiful ride we had. We couldn't get enough and he even gave us a discount on our second ride. He made us hats and necklaces with a water plant called tswii. What an astonishing customer service, I definitely recommend.

Beautiful, enjoyable tour on short notice
5/5

Our bike tour group had a layover day in Maun and seven of us decided, most on the day before, to do the mokoro boat overnight. Shipungo was able to accommodate all of us, on our schedule (we had to ride to Maun that morning). All transportation and other details went very smoothly. The mokoro ride through the delta is beautiful, we highly recommend it especially for first-timers to the Okavango. There were a number of boat pilots and other staff, they cooked very nice meals even though it rained hard part of the evening. The next morning we did a two hour hike looking for wildlife, we saw zebra and buffalo (giraffes and lions took the day off); saw a LOT of hippos in the water.
Price was quite reasonable. I highly recommend this trip.

This is one Local Safari Tour that I tried them first time by then and they did not disappoint me.
5/5

Like I said I was using them for the first time and and was a bit skeptical about them even though I was referred to them by a friend.
1. Communication wise very impressive
2. Service wise- very patient and not like these other companies who are quick to say deposit upfront to secure your booking, got my confirmation booking over a telephone and paid when I got to Maun.
3. Expectations: 100% what u want or ask for you will get.
4. Safari Tour : Cant wait to do it again, very brave and patient
5. Boat Cruise: Fun and adventures especially doing it in the Delta.

Amazing experience with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide.
5/5

My family and I got in touch with Mark to plan the trip to Moremi Game Reserve in advance. Once in Maun we called him and confirmed our trip. He told us he'll come to pick us up from the hotel at 6am and there he was at 6am sharp.
It was cold in the morning sitting in the convertible land Cruiser but he provided us with blankets. I wish he provided us with dust masks. That's the only complaint because we spent in the truck 3 hours to get to Moremi and another 4+ hours driving in the reserve and it gets really dusty... So I would recommend offering the dust masks to avoid discomfort breathing.
Our Guide Titi was amazing. He offered us breakfast and lunch. He knew a lot about the wild life and had books related to all the animals and birds we saw. He was able to answer all our questions.
We highly recommend this safari company and Titi as a guide.

It was rainning ao much. But they are very patient and try to find every single animal. We were very happy to see their passion and kindness. Finnally we ended up seeing lions that are hunting. It was perfect. I really had a lot of fun.

Beautiful Mokoro Tour to the Okavango Delta
5/5

We had a very beautiful mokoro tour to the Okavango Delta with Shipungo this November! Communication was friendly and professional, and so were our guides (Sanny and Top Gun)!

We were picked up on time at our hotel, transferred to the mokoro station near Maun by car and had a quite long mokoro tour (including a game walk on an island). Lunch and drinks were provided and delicious, and we got to see and learn about a lot of typical animals in the area - so nothing to complain about :)

Mokoro Tour - Amazing experience
5/5

In October 2019 my wife and I did a 3 day (2 nights) Mokoro tour with Shipungo Safari & Tours in the Okavango Delta.

Starting with the excellent organization, our experienced poler and guide with whom we had amazing experiences on our tours and the camp staff who i.a. prepared great food for us, we were very satisfied.

We were also lucky not to have to share the camp with any other fellow travellers (in contrast to other tour operators who do such tours with 20 people).

We would book again via Shipungo at any time and can highly recommend the company.

Excellent tour
5/5

What an absolutely great tour experience from the start. the guide was on time to pick up, had to wait a couple of minutes for us, as we were running late. he made us very comfortable before we left the hotel for our excursion.

Upon getting to the Delta, there was a team of people waiting for us, we were taken on the Delta with a canoe. what an experience. they are so professional and the guide Matthew was the best ever. we received lunch, water, cooldrink and snacks as part of the package.

We got to see some really cool animals up close and personal, like elephants, buffalo's, hippo's, giraffe's etc.

We can highly recommend Shipungo Safari Tours, as they are an excellent team.

Regards
Clarissa
