Our trip could not have been any better. Everything was as expected or better than expected. The camps were all great. Wonderful game viewing, great food, awesome staff and perfect accommodations. Lea liked Sable Alley the best. I like all of them. The guides were all very knowledgeable and engaging. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We were never hungry. Seeing the variety of game from our tent or the common areas was very cool. We were entertained by two hippos mating during breakfast at Sable Alley (for Amanda’s sake, luckily they do it under water). We heard lions roaring and elephants trampling bushes from our tent at Sable Alley. We had baboons and buffalo under our tent at Rra Dinare and two elephants in our path at Lagoon. All just awesome. We saw five leopards, hyenas, aardwolf, wild dogs, jackals, buffalo, warthog, wildebeest, every kind of antelope including sable, hippos, baboons, ostrich, honey badger, mongoose, crocodiles, zebra, giraffe, more elephants than we could count and lots of lions. All the flights were right on time and the pilots were great. We had to run some Kudo off the runway at Lagoon. The transfers all went very well. The transfer staff were on time, helpful and made us feel well taken care of. The house boat worked out very well. Very clean, great food (ox tail is more bones than meat 😉) and we got to sleep past 5:45 AM for a change. We got lucky with our passengers. We had a couple from Australia and a couple from New Zealand and they were both great folks. We exchanged emails and phone numbers. Lots of laughs. We saw elephants swimming across the river and baboons chasing each other up and down the river bank. We did a trip to a local village which was eye opening and made us really appreciate what we take for granted every day. Vic Falls hotel was very nice and a welcome respite from the street vendors of Vic Falls. We did the zip line over the gorge and the Wild Horizons Elephant walk, very special. The border crossing from Botswana to Zim looked like a two hour wait but our transfer person “pulled a few strings” and got us through in 20 minutes. Again, overall, just an amazing trip and perfectly executed. 5 stars to you, your staff and all the accommodations. We will plan a return trip in the near future and look forward to your help again. Thank you so much!! Steffi was so helpful and did an outstanding job for us!!! It could not have been any better!!!

This has been my 4th safari in the past 10 years I different parts of Africa and so I can safely say this one is up there with the best. The difference was our choice of gondwana safaris as our handling agents.we travelled as a family of 7 adults and from the moment I contacted Mark @ head office I knew they were the right choice. Mark booked splash camp in the okavango delta for us.cottage garden on the chobe river and phezulu lodge in victoria falls and they were all superb. I must also mention George and Muzila who were our guides on safari ,nothing was too much for them. Please use Gondwana tours and safaris. You will not regret it

Jen from Gondwana Tours organized a 12 day tour in the Kalahari and in Okavango Delta for me and my sister. We were in four different camps, all of them beautiful, great staff, best guides and trackers. Thank you for your help with planning this trip that we will never forget.

I found Gondwana in a Google search and they had by far the most best response to my last minute request for an affordable (by game lodge standards) trip to Botswana. They had great suggestions, like adding the Victoria Falls to our itinary, and took care of everything for us in no time. Through Gondwana we stayed at a three Kwando camps (Tau Pan, Nxia Pan and Splash), which were absolutely spectacular: best wildlife watching ever with the help of fantastic guides (leopard with fresh kill, anyone?), marvelous rooms with outdoor showers and comfy beds and wonderful pampering by the lovely staff. An unforgettable trip!

We have asked several tour agents for bostwana itinerary and at last we have picked Gondwana. Jonathan from Gondwana gave us good suggestions and responsive to all our questions. We have some specific requests and Jonathan has helped us to check out the possibilities. All the logistics and accommodations were well arranged. We have seen over 50 species of birds and over 20 species of mammals during our safaris ( the tour guide has provided us a booklet to track our record). The guides are very professional. We have seen big ones ( lions mating and eating elephant corpse, leopard chasing impala at Savuti) and small ones ( how a dung beetle rolled the elephant dung to attract its mate). The trip was fantastic and very educational. I highly recommend Jonathan to our friends.
