Elizabeth knows Africa and has extensive knowledge of various camps throughout different regions. We selected to be in Botswana for our two week trip. Our criteria included only air transportation from camp to camp, off road game drives in open air vehicles, and a limit of three camps because travel from camp to camp usurps so much time. She planned our itinerary with astuteness and booked us at Chitabe, Little Tubu and Selinda camps. Our African trip was a success without any complications.
Chitabe Camp (Wilderness)
In three wonderful days at Chitabe, we saw a plethora of wildlife. The highlight was an afternoon drive with our guide, OD, where we saw a cheetah stalk, chase and kill a juvenile wildebeest. However, the cheetah quickly was driven away and deprived of his feast by two female lions who devoured the wildebeest. On the way back to camp we saw impalas, elephants, giraffes and then came upon a herd of about 100 Cape Buffalo. Just before arriving at camp we spotted and followed a leopard. What an experience in one four hour game drive!
I would like to have prior knowledge that our tour operator was sending us two very suitable and durable duffle bags which we used. A few months prior to our trip, I had purchased two duffles that now must be given to Goodwill with the tags still on them.
Also, we needed more money. We followed the guidelines for tipping and only over tipped giving the guides a full day's tip when we were only on an afternoon game drive because of arriving at the camp at noontime. We spent almost $600.00 in tips, but were advised that we only needed $250.00. Maybe they suggested the $250.00 for each person, but that was not specified. Luckily, we did have a little over $600.00 and so all staffs and guides were tipped appropriately, but it limited us from buying souvenirs because we did not want to use our credit card.
