    This game reserve is worth the visit - you can see both land animals such as elephants and antelope as well as water animals such as crocs and hippos.

    What a fun experience to take a boat safari through the delta. Definitely recommend the opportunity as you will experience more wild life than you can imagine...

    My friends and I decided in 2019 that we wanted to do an African Safari and contacted Gondwana Tours to help plan this trip. It was scheduled for May 2020 and due to COVID it was postponed. Jen our travel consultant helped us postpone our trip and we finally were able to travel May 2022. I have just returned from the trip and it was an excellet experience. We started in Jburg, went on to Okavango Delta and completed our trip at Victoria Falls. Jen helped to tailor the trip to our desires and I will forever remember this trip as absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Gondwana Tours & Safaris to help plan the trip of a lifetime

    After no travel for two years, my first trip was to Botswana, the Okavango Delta, with Mosu Safari. Because I had travelled with them twice in the past, I knew 18 days with Mosu Safari would be one of the safest, best trips I could take now. I flew from the US on United direct from Newark to Johannesburg and then on to Maun. Everywhere I travelled in South Africa and Botswana people were careful with mask wearing, hand sanitzer, lots of temperature checks and COVID testing. And being outdoors camping and in the Land Rover is a great way to travel particularly now.

    My trip this year included areas I have never been. Kubu Island with its amazing baobab trees and salt flats was incredible and Tsodilo Hills was beautiful. I highly recommend both areas! And Moremi Game Reserve provided so many great experiences - lions, leopards, so many birds, wild dogs, giraffe, elephants, buffalo, crocodiles, and so much more! We stayed in the Xini area and Khwai. This was my third time in Khwai and it is always beautiful with lots to see.

    I cannot say enough good things about Mosu! My guide was os great - as always, the camp meals were really delicious and the camp hand was super helpful. I stayed in Maun an extra day on our return so I could get a PCR test to get into South Africa. The company owner even drove me around Maun and took great care of me on that last day. At 18 days, this was the longest trip I have taken with them and it was such a treat after the last two years. I'm already looking forward to my next trip

    We used Bronwyn at Safari Specialists to help us put together a trip to the Okavango Delta, Chobe, and the Magadigadi salt pans. After finding out what type of experience we were hoping for, Bronwyn put together a number of options and helped us decide which ones to choose. Everything went smooth as possible, with transfer and accommodations. We couldn’t have been happier with the trip she planned for us! I especially liked that Safari Specialists is a Botswana based business, which is intimately familiar with the camps and landscape of the country.

    We did a 1 hour flight over the Moremi, starting in the Duba Concession, with helicopter pilot Aron, and - wow!

    Doors off, flying at various altitudes, we saw some of the most incredible scenery in a completely new way. You can cover a lot of ground in a short time in a helicopter and with all the water in the Delta - it's an incredible way to see the Okavango Delta!

    We did a 10 day Botswana safari and the footage from this helicopter flip is the most spectacular footage we have overall.

    The helicopter itself is perfect - small and very exciting during take off. It sounds obvious, but because it's smaller than the Cessna's and more agile, and you can speak with each other and decide in which direction to go - you feel like you're flying much more so than in a small plane.

    I recommend late afternoon. The pilot told us it's one of his favourite times to fly and it does not disappoint.

    Incredible!

    Just returned from a photographic safari in the Delta. Both the photographer guide, Daniel Crous, and the driver/guide, Bate, were extraordinarily knowledgable and outstanding. The food was wholesome and excellent and everyone was very friendly. Overall a fantastic trip. We were comfortable without being overly fancy. Just the perfect combination and level of comfort for us.

    This was an epic trip to celebrate my niece graduating from college. "Life” was very professional and made sure we were safe at all times. We saw baboons, elephants, hippos, monkeys, impalas, crocodiles, buffaloes, a variety of birds and even a live lion's kill. The refreshments and lunch provided was delicious. I am amazed at "Life's" vision. “Life” was able to see things that we did not and I was impressed by his "eyes". This Full day game drive was a fabulous way to start our adventure in Chobe National Park!

    Thank you for your professionalism. The whole trip was planned smoothly, everything was on time as you scheduled for us. I will remember our trip to Africa forever. Amazing views of the sunset and sunrise, unforgettable smells of nature, different animals that were very close to our car, but most importantly it was safe. Lodges and food were amazing!!!

    From the minute we saw Tony we knew we will have the best safary experience.
    Tony and his team are professionals.
    They treated us well, helped us when our suitcases didn't arrive at time, they made the best food, and made the safary even better.
    At the time we've been in the parks we saw how professional is Tony, all the other guides warship him and all the other people that were there seemed as they want to be with Tony too, he really is the kindest person we've met on our trip.
    All the tents were just perfect and comfortable, we had beds and showers with access from the tent so we had our privacy as well.
    We thank Tony and his team and absolutely we will come back to more safarys with Tony.

    Really enjoyed this trip and felt completely connected with the wildlife. Moses & Joster proved to be great guides and trackers but the rest of the team also did a tremendous job setting up camp and seeing to all our needs.
    From a photographic perspective we had some amazing sightings & behaviours with dogs, lions leopards, hyenas, elephants and a serval.
    We were part of a small photographic group led by Andy & Sarah Skinner who worked seamlessly together with the 'Unlimited' team to provide an unforgettable experience which we hope to repeat one day.

    Roger and Safari Lifestyles delivered not only an incredible vacation for our first trip to Botswana but also an excellent planning experience that was easy and convenient as we worked with Roger through email to plan the entire trip.

    Roger was always reliable and promptly responded to our questions with thoughtful, detailed feedback generously sharing his knowledge of Botswana and any other miscellaneous topics we asked about such as photography. He was so helpful throughout the entire process by listening to our thoughts and ideas and providing a range of options, itineraries and camps at different price points to consider that would deliver the incredible experience we hoped for all the while maintaining an unbiased opinion on which camps to select. The Safari Lifestyles website was also extremely informative and was a valuable resource for us when deciding on which camps to visit. And ultimately, the final price point of our trip was lower than we expected compared to others which was another added benefit.

    Roger proved to be flexible with us as we changed dates and camps after the initial planning and also subsequently added activities to the start and end of our trip. He even arranged other private activities for us in Botswana with reliable businesses when we expressed our interest in certain activities which enhanced our experience and we greatly appreciated.

    For the primary portion of our trip, we visited the Kwando camps of Mma Dinare, Lagoon and Kwara for three nights each. Each camp delivered a unique and memorable experience and incredible wildlife encounters. It was easy to see why Roger recommended Kwando for their focus on the wildlife experience and game drives which is what we were most interested in when planning our safari. The camps and food were all beyond expectations too.

    We hope to visit Botswana again with the help of Roger and Safari Lifestyles. We'd recommend them to anyone!
