The adjective “seamless” is often over used in these contexts, but in this particular case appears to be an understatement. We could not imagine a more perfect safari.

Guide Experience Rating: Excellent
Guides: 

And lest I forget, seeing Esther again at Vic Falls was a true homecoming, like meeting up with an old friend.

More importantly, all of the camps we stayed at were wonderful in their own way and all of our guides (Brett, Willie, Kagee, and Luke) were enthusiastic and determined to give us the experience we were hoping for. As this was our third safari, we had a few special goals, like seeing wild dogs and a cheetah, and thanks to our guides we got both.

Rattray’s on MalaMala lived up to its “Big Five” reputation in the first two game drives, which gave us plenty of time to relax and spend time with multiple leopards and one large lion pride. Savuti Camp felt like home, lots of elephants, and our first goal fulfilled: a large pack of wild dogs, as well as a pack of hyena devouring a baby elephant. Tubu Tree camp gave us a taste of the Okavango Delta, along with plenty of lions and two competing mother leopards and cubs.

Last but not least, Chitabe got us our elusive cheetah! Of course, this is only a list of some of the highlights of our trip.
