Overall Impressions

Nicki did a wonderful job of not only putting together a wonderful trip, but making sure we were well taken care of from the moment we arrived in Cape Town, to the very last check-in at the Maun airport. We loved the going from a rustic glamping experience in Chobe Under Canvas to the platform tents of Nxabega (loved having real showers)to the final destination of Sandibe.....each time another level of luxury. Everyone at every location was so friendly and wonderful. The knowledge of all the guides & trackers was amazing. Animals were everywhere. Food was fantastic. What more can we say. Thank you for a memorable trip.

Countries Visited

South Africa

We are not city people, but enjoyed Cape Town. Great tour of the Cape and a wonderful bike trip through the vineyards of Stellenbosch, tasting the wine and nibbling on cheese, tapas and chocolate at the various vineyards.


Each location we stay at offered a new vista of the land, animals and environment. From the river of Chobe, to the drought & fire area of Nxabega to the greener area of Sandibe....all offering new sites and sounds. We thoroughly enjoyed the boat tour on the Chobe with the seat equipped with Canon cameras and high powered zoom lenses on gambles. Got a lot of wonderful close ups of the animals.

Accommodation Visited

The Clarendon Bantry Bay

Great location, wonderful staff and beautiful views from our seaside room up on the hills of Bantry Bay

Chobe Under Canvas

Rustic glamping, hosted by a great crew of attentive people. Loved the welcoming songs every time we returned to camp.

Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp

Beautiful location, wonderful food and great staff. We especially enjoyed having Promise taking care of us.

Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge

Great lodge to end our adventure. But one has to watch out for the monkey that may try to steal your food whilst eating.

Staff Review

Can't say enough about how well Nicki planned our holiday safari. I was a bit vague with what were looking for but in the end, Nicki was able to come up with a great experience for us. Thank you.
