          Fantastic safari company
          We did a 6 days/5 nights tour from Kasane to Maun, visiting Chobe and Moremi National Parks, and the Okavango river. The trip was absolutely spectacular! Xaa Safaris is a very professional company, they designed a perfect safari trip absolutely well adapted to our requests. Every detail was taken care of to perfection. The guide, Ranger, was not only very knowledgeable but also such a fantastic and friendly person!, we were deeply sad when we had to say goodbye! Same about George, the cook, who cooked great meals in the middle of the bush! and was also so friendly and kind. Maas, the company contact in Maun, was great with us, and very helpful. Nobantu, the main organizer in Gaborone, designed this perfect trip for us. Our greatest thanks to all of you!!. Price for value was simply excellent: We spent one night in Savuti, two in Kwai, and one in the Okavango delta, in very nice tents with shower and toilet, that were moved every night from place to place, to be there waiting for us when we returned from our safari trip. They were placed in fantastic locations. In Kwai we could see the elephants in the river from our dinner place!. All the team was so helpful, nice, warm and friendly. We had such a fantastic time! And we saw pleeeeenty of animals. An unforgettable experience we will never forget!!!!

          Scam or just terrible customer service?
          SCAM! Watch out! I had been discussing our boat safari via email with Xaa Safaris since January of 2023 just to arrive in Maun in July of 2023 to find that my deposit had been stolen and no boat was waiting for us. I accepted a quote, completed the paperwork, signed and sent it through as requested, then on the same email string, banking details were provided for me to pay the deposit. Upon phoning them a day prior to the excursion, they said no payment had been received, and this is when it came to light that right after I emailed the signed contract, the correspondence address changed from info@xaasafaris.com to info@xaasafaris.pw. In the same string replying, this was not noticeable, so the money was paid via EFT and the receiving account was emptied - nothing I can do to have the funds returned. I have no proof that Xaa Safari is the culprit. However, considering the timing at which the fake email address became active and the fact that they never tried to follow up on our booking, despite having (via the legitimate email address) received a signed contract with all our personal details, this is either extremely poor customer service, or more likely an inside job.

          A wonderful, privileged, experience to the heart of unchanged Africa.
          Two of us travelled independently to Botswana, and booked with Xaa Safaris for a mobile 3-day 2-night safari, journeying into the fabulous Central Kalahari Game Reserve. Our guide came to meet with us the night before departure at our lodge in Maun, and briefed us on what to expect. The following morning he arrived with his team of 3, in a smart safari vehicle with a trailer stuffed with camping gear. The whole setup was really professional and expert. We have been on numerous safaris before, and it was our choice to try a safari during the rainy season, when the bush is all green - and animals much harder to spot! We did see 3 lions and a cheetah though! Having arrived at our campsite (a small grove of shade trees with long grass) we unhitched the trailer, and the guys started to set up the tents, and the cook place. We went out for the afternoon game drive and returned at dusk to find all ready, including the dining tent set for dinner! They made the hospitality seem really easy, including providing delicious vegetarian food as we requested.

          A good experience from Maun
          We ordered the tour but complications arose because January is off season and the company had closed their local office so nobody read the booking on a daily basis. This was not stated on their website and lead us to think they where just collecting money and not showing up. It was quite the opposite. When we after a time got hold of the owner éverything sorted out and we where treated good. Given a free meal and imeadately reimbursed the cost of the ordered trip. But be aware. The website was not updated with working telephone or working e-mail. We discussed this with the owner and representative and they are eagerly working on the issue. So, we think everything should in future be OK. But are you nervous, you could call them before you order. They are nice people

          Excellent and comfortable mobile camping safari
          We just returned from a mobile camping safari in Chobe National Park and the Khwai Concession which borders Moremi Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta. Being one of the SafariBookings team members I have been privileged to go on quite a few safaris already but this trip was one of my best bush experiences so far. It was the beginning of the wet season but we hardly had any rain. Afternoon temperatures were quite high during the first couple of days, but we were either in the open vehicle while driving and cooled by the wind or in the camp, where we could relax and enjoy cold drinks in a glass with ice. The heat turned out to be quite doable and the nice thing about this time of year was that temperatures during the morning and evening/night time were lovely (unlike in July/August when it gets really cold at night and during the morning). The scenery was beautiful and green and we saw so much wildlife. An abundance of antelope species, big herds of elephant and buffalo, giraffe, hippo, lion multiple times, two leopards and even four painted dogs on the last day, which was a real treat as encountering those magnificent creatures is quite rare. In addition it was the season where the migratory birds were there and the birding was spectacular. We kept track of the bird species and ended up ticking more than 110 bird species, including beautiful birds of prey and impressive looking storks and egrets. It truly felt like paradise. Our guide, Ranger, was very knowledgeable about both the animals, birds and trees. He really made our trip. The mobile camping was a lot more comfortable than we expected. Tents were large Meru style tents in which you could comfortably stand and move around. They felt like small hotel rooms in the middle of the wilderness. What a great experience and we felt much closer to the bush when compared to staying in a lodge or a larger tented camp. The mess/lounge tent was also great and the food they served was delicious. The camp staff were great people and took care of all the camp chores, including moving the entire camp to the next location. Quite impressive. It was a great experience which I am going to remember for a long time.

          Do Not Use Xaa Safaris
          Xaa Safaris did not come to collect us at the hotel and they did not answer the phone. They finally replied to my email over 2hrs after the scheduled pick up time saying they were not able to make it. No reason given. I don’t know if they just forgot, failed to arrange a guide or just couldn’t be bothered. Ruined our time in Maun as we were leaving the next day and were there specifically to do the Okavango Delta tour. Do not use Xaa Safaris as they will probably cancel your tour without telling you and leave you waiting and ruin your day.

          Excellent Tour Operator !
          A friend and myself participated in the full day Moremi Game Drive and also a Mokoro tour. Our guide was Puso and was absolutely fantastic. I am a tour guide myself by profession and was beyond thrilled with how our two days with Zaa were handled. Puso was super friendly and so knowledgeable! We saw so many different animals. We felt safe, not rushed at all, and in extremely good hands. Special attention was given to my dietary requirement (vegetarian) and everything was very well organised. I wish we were able to spend more time with Puso. I highly recommend!

          Real joy with variety
          We took a 2 hour trip in which we saw a lot of wildlife activity: eliphants in the river and passing through the river, crocs nearby, water monitor lizzard, lechwe, water birds, water flowers. 2 hours seems a perfect time.

          Top quality agency and great tour
          We were pleasingly surprised by the quality of Xaa Safari agency and the dedication of the staff. Xaa Safari is a small local agency, with very competitive prices. We stayed in the middle of nowhere in Central Kalahari Game Reserve, with no-one around us for kilometers. The infrastructure they set up for us was amazing: sufficiently large tent with beds and mattress, chemical toilet and shower. We had an (excellent!) cook, two guides and a one other staff member. The food was excellent, every day. The game drives were disappointing as we didn't see any of the big 5, we were just very unlucky. But that is a safari: there are no guarantees. But sitting around the fire at night, and gazing at the sky with millions of stars (as there is absolutely no light pollution), is worth the trip.

          Trustworthy
          We booked a one day prepaid boattrip with Xaasafaris. One month before our trip they informed us that the trip has to be cancelled because of low water levels. One day after I have informed them that we were not interested in the alternative trips they offerde, the prepaid money has been refunded on my PayPal account.

        To start from good, the manager, Nobantu, was nice and helpful. She replied to my emails fast and gave me all the details I've asked her about. The camp was designed in a wise and nice manner: every tent is spacious and equipped with en-suite portable shower, bio-lavatory, bed, and blanket. The food was good, and the cook did his best to please us. But this is where good points end.

        On the first day, we were sailing on a motorboat for about one hour and then on a mokoro, the little canoes, for about three hours. Under the baking sun. But all of that would be fine enough if we could see at least something except a couple of birds...

        Then we came to the camp and spent the afternoon doing nothing. After we had a 'Nature walk' seeing a lot of excrements of different animals and some insects. The local guides could tell 3-4 sentences as maximum about each species, and we were lucky to have a professor of zoology in our group. From him, we received 90% of information about the Delta and its wildlife.

        During the night, in the camp (or village, I don't know) that was not far from us they had a kind of party till 3-4 AM and they make such a bad noise, that if I would have been an animal I would run away as far as I could.

        Next day we had a 'safari walk' on another island, where we saw a herd of zebras and a heard of antelopes. It was early in the morning and from 10 AM to 4 PM we were just sitting in the camp. We were not allowed to walk around because of the 'dangerous wildlife'. I walked a bit at my own risk and saw heaps of rubbish and plastic. Probably that was why it is not allowed to walk around because there is simply NO wildlife in this area, I didn't see there even one simple impala. And I don't think that any wildlife will come there if they won't stop night orgies and pollution.

        Coming back I found that my bio-toilet is not working. I asked the staff to do something.

        In the evening, we had a mokoro cruise to the lake with the hippos. They were far away to make good photos, but at least we've seen something - I thought. But at that moment people from this camp/village came on their mokoros shouting so loudly that my group mates started to worry about our lives since hippos are not so tolerated to that crazy sounds as people are.

        When I came back to my tent I found my toilet clean, but it was still not working.

        Next day after the breakfast we just went back to Maun, without any morning activity.

        Honestly, I was expected from Okavango Delta much more. Before that safari, I went to Chobe National Park, for the 3-days-2-nights tour, too. But there we had two safaris every day and just a couple of hours to rest, the staff was experienced and did their best to make us see as much as possible, and we've seen a great number of different animals. In comparison with that, this trip was just for wasting time and money. For this amount, I'd better book a flight and I'm sure I would be impressed much more.

        Summarising, it was the most expensive and the most disappointing part of my 16-day-travel.

        Hi Alice, thank you very much for your feedback. We will certainly do our utmost best to improve on our service especially relating to the Boro community whose concession we conduct Mokoro activities in. Your feedback and your investment will certainly assist in ensuring a sustainable tourism operation for us and especially for the the Boro community. We have already recommended to the Community authorities managing Guides’ allocation for the assigned Guide to get further development. Mokoro experience is mainly about the Delta’s tranquility and most guests prefer Mokoro just for that. Yes the mid morning sun can be somewhat unbearable but you travelled during the best time of the year (winter). We look forward to hosting you again in future this time in Moremi Game Reserve which has a much larger concentration of animals including the big cats compared to the Okavango Delta which is predominantly aquatic and bird lovers paradise. We trust that you enjoyed the Delta’s amazing landscapes. Thank you once again for your feedback. Regards Xaa Safaris team.

        This was an experience unlike any other. Being able to see the serene beauty of the Okavango from the Mokoros with expert polers, going on nature walks with knowledgeable guides, and settling back into a clean and comfortable camp every night. I would have never thought I could be so comfortable camping in the wilds of the Okavango! The tent was equipped with cots, toilets outside, and even an option for hot showers in the evenings! Each meal was prepared for us with attention to detail by our chef Ona, and the staff was so kind, making us laugh and feel at ease throughout our adventure. I would recommend this tour to anyone really wanting to experience the delta.

        We had such an incredible time with this tour. The only negative thing I have to say is that they picked us up a little late, but everything else more than made up for it. Guides made sure we were comfortable for the ride to and from Matsaudi, the chef made wonderful food for us, the guides were knowledgeable and approachable, and you really can't beat the scenery. Our tents were clean and the added perk of a toilet out back was really great. We had such an amazing time getting to know our guides - they were true professionals with great senses of humor. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great mokoro experience on the Okavango!
