Great full day Chobe experience with Moonlight
I ended up booking a full day safari (private) and a Chobe river cruise (group) with Moonlight a month or so before my trip to Botswana. Prices were quoted in USD, but the expectation was that payment would be made in BWP cash. We were able to stop by an atm on our way into town, but BG offered to drive us to one if needed. Note: there was a relatively low ATM withdrawal limit, so it took three transactions at two ATMs to pull out the full amount. A few days before we arrived in Kasane, BG reached out by email to connect through Whatsapp to discuss final logistics.
On the evening of the river cruise, BG met us at our hotel's reception to collect payment and to drive us to the river dock. He showed up on time and the transfer was flawless. The cruise was a great time - lots of up close animal sightings and the captain did a great job of setting the boat up for good photography angles. At the end of the cruise, BG met us back at the top of the dock and took us back to our hotel.
The next morning we met BG at our hotel for an open air safari day drive. We had stocked up on water the evening before, but BG had also filled a cooler of bottles for us too. We spent most of the day driving up the river on the lookout for animals. While during the heat of the day it was difficult at times to find animals - BG did a great job knowing where to look. At one point, we ended up finding a pride of 13 lions who (after they were finished fighting with some elephants - went to sleep under a tree a few meters away from us. I've been to a bunch of safari parks in southern Africa - but this was one of the best experiences I've had.
Would also like to mention that Moonlight provided a huge luchbox that was probably enough food for a full day. Next time we're in the area, will definitely consider BG & Moonlight again.

Great time in the bush with lots of big cats
We had a great trip with Moonlight. I was a little worried about camping out the bush with all the wildlife, but the extensive experience of the team made me feel better when we were out there. As someone used to backpacking, the camping was really more like glamping- we had a shower, good food, and cots. The only thing I wish they had was a dedicated handwash. There was also a truck-mounted fridge with cold drinks at all times.
The wildlife was spectacular- we spent hours with lions, saw many elephants, giraffe, and all kinds of antelope. We even saw a leopard. Chobe riverfront and Savuti were both very unique in a different way.

Possibly the best guide in Botswana!
We have been taking guided safaris in Botswana for around 30 years now and Moonlight Safaris' full day trip into Chobe was one the best we ever experienced. Bogosi has an unparalleled knowledge of wildlife and the environment. His positioning of the vehicle was expertly done to allow for up close and safe encounters with animals. the picnic lunch was excellent. If you are looking for a true safari experience that is second to none, then look no further than Moonlight Safaris. Highly recommended

He looked after all our needs, and made sure we were able to see as many animals as possible.
I came with my teenage son.
We had a wonderful time. The accomodation and warm shower in the bush was very pleasant.
We had an extremely informed guide with a team that took care of everything to ensure we were able to make the most of our camping trip.

Exzellent Game Drive
The Game Drive was one of the best and most expressive we ever had. Matengu was great in finding animals, we saw hundreds of elefants , antelopes, zebras , some crocodiles and we even saw a leopard at the end of the tour. It was absolutely worth its money! Moonlight Safaris is a highly reliable company and we very much recommend it for the Chobe NP Safari.

Great authentic adventure in Botswana wilderness!
Bogosi is a great travel companion and guide. He's passionate and knowledgeable about his country and knows how to make you feel at home. I came to Botswana hoping to see my own Big 5 (wild dogs, hippos, hyenas, lions, leopards) and managed to see them all up close. The camping was very comfortable and Bogosi and his team put on a great spread to provide a top notch service even in the wilderness. I highly recommend it!

Bigi was fantastic, very informative and answered all questions. He also was on time for pick up
It was a great day at Chobe National Park, we saw plenty of wild life and by the river was great. Spectacular sceneries all around. Bigi our guide was so easy to get on with, he was stopping us every where we needed to take a good shot. Lunch was great too, we were also given bottled water throughout the whole day. These are treasured moments to take back home, Malta

Two weeks adventure in Botswana
We spend two weeks in Botswana and Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) with Moonlight Safaris.
Everything was perfectly organized. Guides Bogosi and Judah took great care of us from arriving at the airport till our departure. They are very friendly, knowledgeable and answered all of our questions about the animals and the life in Botswana.
We visited the Victoria Falls and made several boat tours on the Chobe river. Went on a special camping in Savuti, Khwai and Moremi for a 6 nights with two vehicles and support team of 4 people. They set up great camping for us, cooked delicious meals and made our life in the bush a real pleasure. It ended with two days boat tour in the Okavango delta with a one night special camping in the delta and a panoramic flight above it.
Needles to say we saw a lot of animals during these two weeks - elephants, lions, giraffes, leopards and cheetahs, wild dogs and zebras to name a few.
It was a great adventure and we returned full of unforgettable memories. I would highly recommend Bogosi, Moonlight Safaris and his team for everyone looking to experience Botswana's wildlife!

Bogosi is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and goes above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoys.
This was the third trip with Moonlight Safaris and each one is better than the last. We saw enough wildlife to last several lifetimes. We saw prides of lions feeding on an elephant they had killed. We saw leopards mating, so rare to see them together like that. So many elephant, giraffe, zebra, and variety of antelope. Camping under the stars in the bush is life changing. The food they prepared was amazing and different every night. I could go on and on but you need to experience for yourself. Check out Botswana and let Moonlight Safaris be your guide. You will not regret it!
