Had a wonderful holiday in the delta with family. Thanks to Lisa and her team from safari specialists everything went without a hitch. We started our trip by visiting Victoria falls and seeing the falls in its full glory no wonder it is among the natural wonders of the world. The children took part in all the adventure sports and enjoyed it.
From Victoria falls we proceeded to Chobe elephant camp in Botswana for a 3 night stay. Lizzi was the manager of the camp and took good care of us. The camp itself was great with good basic facilities. Food was also good. A special mention of our guide KG. He was very knowledgable with a good sense of humour.
Next stop was Little Machaba camp in the delta. This was a new camp and Lisa strongly recommended it. This was the highlight of our trip. If we could would give it ten stars! The camp,food the safari and everything else was great. Richard the camp manager went out of his way to make us comfortable. Our guide Moreri was fantastic. It was obvious how passionate he was about wild life preservation and really took pains to show us a lot of wild life including leopards and lions. Our 4 nights stay in this camp was unforgettable and would love to return some day
Would strongly recommend safari specialists as tour operators for the delta trips as they did a fantastic job and arranged an amazing holiday for us

We visited the Delta outside of Maun and did a mokoro boat tour. It was great to have a relaxing ride and converse with our guide, Gee. We stepped off twice, once to just look around and then the next time to have a longer walk and lunch. During the longer walk, we saw elephants walking and our guide explained the delta (which was dryer at the time) and how all the animals work together to create a symbiotic environment. It was really touching, I have to say. The ride back through the water lilies was magical. I'd definitely suggest it, and I would love to return someday during the rainy season to see the changes.

Expensive, compared to South African options, nonetheless worth it. A large element of the cost is the tourist/park fees due to the enlightened policy of the Government of Botswana.

If you wanna to have the experience of walking in the middle of the african savana for sure take the plane to Botsuana... it is facinating how the tribes there knows everything about the nature and the behavior of the animals.
