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.

The safari was amazing! I forget the name of a our driver but he was funny and went above and beyond to make sure we got the full wildlife viewing experience. Our campsite in the bush was the nicest camping I’ve ever done anywhere in the world. The only negative is that there is a long time between meals so bring lots of snacks.
