We chose this travel agency after interviewing the two suggested by Zicasso and two others recommended by friends. This safari tour operator was most responsive and spent the most time trying to understand our objectives for our first trip to Africa and to provide the information we needed to make a decision. We wanted a company that had experience providing custom trips with lots of personal attention - which you can probably get from a lot of agencies. One of the main distinguishing factors that made us more comfortable with this company was the owner's personal knowledge of the area and the camps and hotels. We felt we would be in good hands all the way and we were.
The stays in the Bostwana camps provided numerous enjoyable and memorable moments, perhaps most memorable were the times we spent watching and following a lion pride on a morning hunt, or coming across a group of elephants and their young and how they reacted to us. Just the opportunity to be face to face with the wildlife and have nothing else on our minds was a tremendous experience and a privilege. We learned so much from our guides and left with a better understanding and appreciation for these company's conservation efforts and measures to protect the wildlife and the local communities. We also enjoyed some of the more indulgent touches, such as the attentive service, the wonderful food and the candlelight and fireside dinners.
We might not have gone to Zimbabwe to see Victoria Falls. The stay was perhaps a way to "re-enter" from safari, but was not a highlight and reminded me of some things I don't like about visiting popular nature destinations.
