once in a lifetime trip

By: handball3

Reviewed on: 06 Oct 2015

A wonderful trip that exceeds superlatives. The trip started in Cape Town SA where we visited the Kirstenboch botanical garden and wine country. Then for Safari to Namibia Rhino Camp and Skeleton Coast both run by Wilderness Safaris. Individual bungalows at both camps and at all others as well. Great camps. All along the way we were escorted from one connection to the next and it was wonderful. The second time I might (?) be able to do it myself. From Namibia to the Okavango delta in Botswana - one of the premier places in the world for wild life viewing. We stopped in two camps - Tubu Tree camp and Chobi. In Chobi we saw all wild life x2. Finally to Sabu little bush camp near Kruger SA - also wonderful. Food was out of this world. Starting in Namibia, mostly desert, and going to Botswana next was the right order. We will want to go back. We still have want to see the jungle and will use Michael.

Our tour guides were the best in attending to every detail of our trip. We felt like we were the only ones that mattered. Our every need was thoughtfully addressed. From Chris in Capetown to Ban in Duma Tau Camp and everyone in between, we received the royal treatment. This trip was a never to be forgotten event and we thank all for making it a special one.

We had a wonderful experience. It's not hard to deliver a great experience when you're seeing animals roaming free that tourists aren't used to, but it is special when your ranger, tracker, and the lodge go out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable and comfortable time. Would highly recommend Tangala!

Wilderness Safaris Botswana-Outstanding!!!

By: Phil

Reviewed on: 20 Nov 2017

We spent an incredible week at two Wilderness camps in Botswana (Chitabe and Vumbura Plains). The knowledge of the outstanding guides ( Ebs and Chris) and the friendliness of the staff at both camps made the holiday very special. In the first 48 hours at Chitabe we were fortunate to see every animal we hoped to see ( and more)...lions, leopards, cheetahs, rhinoceros, wild dogs, hyenas, hippos, elephants, giraffes, zebras, baboons, velvet monkeys, jackals, crocodiles, wildebeests, cape buffalo and numerous types of antelope and birds.

It was my first visit to Africa and to use Wilderness Safaris and I was very impressed with the company and their dedication to conservation. I traveled to Xigera, Savuti and Toka Leya and each camp offered a unique and unforgettable experience. The hospitality was incredible, everyone knows your name a treats you exceptionally well. The staff, guides and camp managers were professional, knowledgeable and grateful to have you as a guest. At each transfer I was met by a representative of Wilderness who guided me through the airport and to my transportation or on to the next camp. I highly recommend Wilderness Safaris and would use them again for future trips to Africa.

My husband and I were lucky enough to have professional guides drive us through Scotland and Ireland. Both of them were excellent travel guides, providing alternative plans for us when weather events made our scheduled itinerary impossible. They have extensive knowledge of and love for their countries and readily shared that with us. Meeting the two of them, along with the city guides, dairy and oyster farm, and distillery tour guides, seaweed foraging expert, falconer, and salmon smokehouse owner were truly the most memorable experiences of our trip.
