Botswana Safari Client Feedback

July 05 2017

4 ladies, loyal clients of Outposts Travel Africa travelled to Botswana this June for a 2 week adventure. They set a very specific budget, they love AND ARE TRULY EXCELLENT photographers, and although not in the first flush of youth they are fit, adventurous and happy to camp as well as stay in lodges. Their main proviso is great game viewing, excellent guiding, and preferably to see as few other people as possible, oh, and a good bottle of wine over camp fire dinner! We had to share some of their feedback because it made us happy.


Were there any activities on your holiday that you particularly enjoyed?

  • All of them – literally!
  • The time on the river was very special and different to what we had done before (in Zimbabwe on their previous safari)  in terms of land game drives. (They did a 2 night boating safari camping on islands in the delta.)
  • Game drives all superb – especially using the transition days as game drives in their own right – genius! (Concentrated on the Okavango delta and Moremi and Khwai areas.)
  • Quad bikes and meerkats wonderful. (They stayed at Planet Baobab in the Makgadikgadi Pans and spent a night sleeping out on the salt pans.)


How would you rate your in-country experts and guides? (1 Poor-10 Excellent)

Kurt McKenzie (main guide pictured below) – 10

Kurt McKenzie who was our guide for the whole trip except Planet Baobab was just amazing. His knowledge was incredible across all aspects of nature (birds, animals, flowers, insects, reptiles etc.) as well as local knowledge, culture, history etc. He was  also an excellent driver – great at risk assessment so cautious where necessary in the marsh but always managed to get us to great viewing spots. I cannot praise him highly enough. 



Do you have any comments regarding the food and accommodation?

Camping was amazing – exceeded expectations. We were so well cared for in every way and the food just incredible. (We used Pride Of Africa as our in country suppliers; they are specialists in mobile camping safaris.)


Do you have any comments that would assist Outposts Travel Africa in improving their service?

You are fabulous – keep doing what you do.


If you could sum up your holiday in one sentence, what would you say?

"The most amazing experience in Africa to date."
