Overall Impressions

The stay at Toka Leya was magical, the staff were fantastically attentive yet relaxed with it. Vic Falls is simply breathtaking. Kwando Lagoon was brilliant too - the situation of the camp alongside one of the Kwando River channels with the rooms overlooking it was brilliant. We fell asleep one night to the sound of two hippos munching on the grass below our room. The highlight absolutely though was seeing a pack of wild dogs with nine puppies - one of those very special life moments !!

Countries Visited

Botswana 5

A breathtaking country - fantastic wildlife, awesome scenery and great people.!!

Mauritius 5

A lovely relaxing island with friendly people and a great climate.

South Africa 4

We both love South Africa. Whilst Jo'burg is not our favourite spot in the country, Sandton is a great spot for a night or two.

Zambia 5

We both loved Zambia - the people are so freindly and Vic Falls was just breathtaking !!

Accommodation Visited

Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge 2

I'm afraid I'm going to have to rate it as below average. Whilst the domestic staff, the food and the rooms were all excellent the reason for staying was for the safari and the guide fell well short of previous safari experiences that we had.

Lagoon Camp 5

Carlos and PD, our guide and tracker respectively, were outstanding. They communicated everything that they saw or thought regarding the safari back to us and their knowledge was excellent. The staff back at the camp were excellent too.

Toka Leya Camp 5

Great location on the banks of the Zambezi. The food was excellent and the staff were fantastic.

LUX* Grand Gaube 5

A lovely chilled out resort to unwind and relax. The staff were so attentive too.

DAVINCI Hotel and Suites 5

Very practical hotel. Great location

Staff Review 5

Greg was fantastically knowledgable and absolutely nailed it with the locations he advised us to go to.
