Overall Trip Experience Rating: 

Countries Visited: 

We had a wonderful time on safari. The wildlife viewing was incredible at all the camps. Linyanti offered the most variety, but the other camps each had something we did not see anywhere else (rhinos at Toka Leya, lions at Gomoti, and red lechwe at Xigera).

Guide Experience Rating: Excellent
Guides: 

Our guide, Andy Sekgwa, was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable about the wildlife, but he was also a fun and engaging companion to travel with (we were the only guests in our "group," so we got to know Andy pretty well). We would highly recommend him to anyone going on safari in Botswana.



Accommodation Experience Rating: 

Accomodation: 

The camps were more comfortable than we had imagined, and the staff at each were friendly and helpful. We were at Gomoti for Meredith's birthday and they prepared a private candlelight dinner on the veranda of our tent and baked her a cake! All the camps accommodated our vegetarian diet with excellent food choices, so that was never an issue.

AAC Trip Planning and Organisation: 
Thanks so much to you and everyone at AAC for your help in planning the safari. Everything went very smoothly and exceeded our expectations. It was Meredith's "trip of a lifetime" and made her 40th birthday very special. Of course, now we've got the bug and I'm sure we'll be planning another trip to Africa in the future. Whenever that may be, we will definitely be in touch.
