- A fantastic tour! - Bibi is an excellent tour leader. Got very close the the wildlife and saw some incredible sights.
The days on the houseboat are mostly relaxed and a gentle introduction to the wildlife of the area. Victoria Falls are impressive and the optional rhino walk is well worth doing. The week of camping in Chobe National Park and Moremi Game Reserve is incredible. So many fantastic wildlife encounters. So many elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos and too many birds to count. Good sightings of lions, leopards and wild dogs too.
The hotels in Maun and Livingstone are fine, with the Livingstone one being especially nice. Food service in the Sedia in Maun is pretty awful.
When camping, the tents are perfectly adequate and the bucket shower was better than expected! Food throughout was fine, not always much choice, but what we had was tasty and usually plentiful.
Some long days in the vehicle. Some VERY bumpy roads. Little opportunity for any form of exercise, very few places where even a walk was possible.
