Just had 3 short stays over the last couple of months, Lulu & the team have spent a lot of time up dating the place. It was always a great place to stay, now they've added new seating along the waterhole frontage. And new shaded seating up at the pool, along with a chalet up on a small platform, glamping style . And as I left a small restaurant was being completed on the ground floor under the bar . I've already booked to stays next year, can't wait.

This was not our first time but it was a pleasant surprise to see that they did something during Covid. Reception had a good clean up, security gate was erected and big smiles added to reception. The best welcome I had I'm Botswana, completed with a fantastic Victoria Falls trip organized by Senyati. We opted for a safari drive too. Guide was excellent and the animals played together. Elephants, Buffalo and wild dogs in the campground chasing an impala. I cannot imagine any other place as good as Senyati. We will be back!

Yet again a lovely stay. Fewer elephants but we think the abundance of wild dogs kept them away. G&Ts were out of this world and they are currently in the process of completing their kitchen. We did a Vic Falls trip with them whic we booked through reception, and even if they say so themselves, the coffee was the best I had in Botswana. It will be difficult to give this boutique lodge run by a husband and wife a miss. Top place for us in Kasane

We were welcomed in a lovely way by very friendly faces and from there on we only had fun. We booked all our activities through the office and we enjoyed all of them, including the Vic Falls Trip and multiple gamedries. The elephants came late but them together with masses of Buffalo gave us great joy. The coffee is without doubt the best we had in Botswana and the Ginand Tonic compared to the best we ever had. Senyati Wil definaely see us again.

I've visited many times and always with group of families. We have never been disappointed. Always very happy with facilities and what the waterhole brings...of course many elephants and several buffalo herds.

This email is regarding a game drive we booked at Senyati Safari camp in Kasane on 13 July 2022. We were very disappointed in the service we received from your company. As well as the feedback we were promised from Senyati Safari Camp Manager Lulu. We booked an Early morning 3hour game drive in Chobe National park for 6 people. Lulu the manager arranged the game drive and we paid the fees for the excursion. Day of game drive the Driver named Kindness picked us up at 6:15 at Senayti’s Reception. He informed us that it is about a 30min drive to Chobe National park gate were would need to pay park entrance fees ect. We left Senyati Safari camp and crossed the tar road onto a gravel road, the driver at time was speeding a lot on this gravel road and we noticed that we were traveling along the airport fence, this carried on for about 30 minutes the driver then made a u turn and took us back the same direction we came. We then got back to the tar road at the entrance sign for Senyati Safari camp, the driver turned right on the tar road in the direction of Nata. He then informed us that he heard about Lions in the area. We drive for about 15 min up and down on this road and he stopped a minibus, he spoke to a lady and from what we could pick up from the conversation they had it sounded like he was asking for directions. Driver’s speech was slurry and he looked very tired as his eyes was very red. This was very concerning for us as we suspected that the driver might be under the influence and very tired. We the proceeded on the tar road toward Kasane at this time it was 7:23 “see photos attached we took of game driver’s clock” we the reached the park entrance gate at 7:31”photo attached”. The driver and myself entered the offices to pay the park fees. The driver spoke to the lady at the counter and he told me to pay the park fees of P1320.00. As I was about to pay the lady behind the counter informed me that when we enter the park with a tour operator, we only pay P730.00. We entered the park at 7:43 “photo attached”. We then drove for about 30 min on the Chobe riverbank. We turned left and drove deeper into the park, at some stages we drove in very thick sand and the vehicle stalled a few times, we got the impression that the drive was not trained or used to drive in these circumstances, we are keen over landers and are used to driving in thick sand and gravel roads ,the way he drove the vehicle was at some stages very concerning to us. At one stage he stopped and told us that as we can see there are not many animals in the park after driving for about 15 min after we left the river bank ,and he is going to take a loop back to the tar road. We then drove thru the bush for about 30 min and reached a tar road. We got onto the tar road and the driver drove sometime at high speed +/- 80-100km/h “which we see as to fast for an open vehicle especially with children. We never exited the park gate and we left park by coming thru the bush on a small road joining the tar road. We reached another gravel road the driver stopped and informed us that the game drive is over, and he is taking us back to our Camp. We drove for about 15 min on this gravel road and reached the Senayti turnoff. Driver dropped us off at reception. This is truly one of the most disappointing experiences we had. For one we spend P2530 for a 3hour Chobe game drive in Chobe and we received a 1:15min drive in Chobe. The rest of the time we spend driving around the airport and on tar roads. Not what we were expecting at all. At some stages we felt very unsafe with the driver seemed under the influence and very tired. His speeding and the way he drove the vehicle was very concerning. We spoke to Lulu from Senyati when we arrived back, and she promised she would see to it that we would get a refund and report this to the owner. Up until now we have not received any communication from her or anybody regarding this. The only response we received from them was that one of the staff members fell ill and they will get back to us. it has been 2 months now with numerous emails from our side with no reply.

Senyati again and again proofs that it never disappoints. A place that will always be close to my heart. Chalets have air on, pool has character and animals are just beautiful people. Nobody should miss Senyati.

We had a perfect stay of 2 days at Senyati, the staff, including owner were very helpfull, kind and thinking for solutions. At the time we were there we saw elephants and some antilope and that kind of stuff but the waterhole was not very crowded with animals. That’s part of nature right! The bar was nice and the private ablution block as well. They have a nice photography bunker which allows to come really close to the animals. The only disadvantage was no payment possible with card at the bar, on the other hand you could just walk to the reception and pay the bill there so again no big issue. Maybe some more focus on silence at the bar/waterhole viewing experience would be a nice improvement. I saw some negative reviews about service and staff but they were absolutely not reliable.

We were treated like family! The owner's hospitality exceeded all expectations. My husband, 2 teenagers and myself fit comfortably in a family chalet. Beds were comfortable and rooms were very clean. We had an excellent view of wildlife at a short distance. Saw elephants, giraffe, impala, and many more animals and birds. This location is considerably better for wildlife observation as compared to staying in the town of Kasane. The friendly staff arranged excellent guides for our excursions into Chobe Park and Victoria Falls.

There was nothing about this place I did not like. Friendly, efficient and just Paradise. From the smallest mongoose to the biggest elephant, all entertainers of this fantastic show. The coffee was definitely the best I had in Botswana, if not in the world! And, of course, made with love and a smile. We just loved Senyati and will be back! It was hard to depart!
