Overall Trip Experience Rating: 

Countries Visited: 

The trip was truly wonderful and though I did not think anything would be as good as my Tanzania trip I was wrong.

Victoria Falls was lovely though the ever-present helicopters hovering were a drawback. The tour of the Chobe River was wonderful with a ton of bee-eaters and other critters, just great…

In total, I was again amazed by the number of birds and animals I saw and the respect of the people of Botswana for their patrimony. I need to save some money so I can go back in 2016 but in another season as still would like to see the younger babies.

Accomodation: 

Duma Tau was great, so new and sparkling with wonderful management. Guide was very energetic and seemed to really want to please…there was plenty of action from the vehicles and the boat. We saw the 17 wild dog pack every day, wow.

At Xigera the mokoro’s were super, great guide who really loved showing the birds to me. I loved the quite to that method of transportation…

And finally Chitabe - the camp I definitely want to go back to in the dry season. The most amazing guide, who really respected the animals, did not approach them rapidly and was just as excited about sightings as we were. Lovely hosts and a really beautiful place that deserves another visit from me. We saw a leopard with her cub there and too many birds to count.

Thank you so much for the help with the planning of another adventure. I am attaching one of my favorite photos. I plan to send some for the photo contest but am still choosing which one.
