It was a really good experience, I would completely recommend it if you want to go camping in Chobe and do some game drives and boat safaris. I was traveling by myself and he helped me feel really comfortable and made an effort for me be with more tourists that were really nice as well.

Highly recommend Big Sam Hubber!!! I had a tour booked with a completely different company and late the night before, they told me it was going to cost more. So I wrote to Big Sam Hubber at midnight and they responded and coordinated a tour for the very next day!!! Everything was absolutely fantastic!!! We loved our guide - he was so kind and knowledgeable. The Chobe game drive was amazing too and we had the best day. We are so grateful for them coordinating this so last minute for us!

We cannot thank Sam enough for his assistance in our visit to Botswana in March 2021. Sam was full of information, was fairly priced and extremely helpful. He was our transfer from the border (Kazangula) and we hired a car through him to visit Chobe National Park. He assisted us with getting our covid tests, and waited with us for our results (24 hours!) and was just helpful on every level. You can reach Sam on +26771691746

The service with these guys was great. Friendly and helpful. Although you pay less than for other tours I think the value is equal. They fetched us from the border at no extra cost. Be sure you communicate clearly what you would like and the duration of your boat and land your.

One of the worst experiences I've ever had with a customer facing company... avoid! We booked 3 tours with Sam and his team, which we forked US$5000 for. After all the trips, as we were about to leave, Sam stopped us aggressively and said we needed to pay the rest/additional fees. What a surprise, as we paid upfront which he forced us to do. Apparently these extra costs were for his personal banking fees (I know, it's shocking right) and were never quoted for in the initial quote for the trips. Now clearly we were not going to just fork out another US$500 because Sam can't figure out his own costs at his bank, we decided to question him on this. After his story changed numerous times, he could see that we could clearly see through his scam (Which other people on Tripadvisor and Google Reviews have also encountered). His last resort was threatening us with the local Kasane Police Force, whom he said he has a brother that was in the force, and that a night in the Kasane jail was not very nice. We paid him 500 Pula, to leave us alone, as we were also with 5 ladies who were very uncomfortable. I will never visit Kasane/Chobe again because of him. This is a scam and he threatens tourists, avoid, avoid and avoid.
