We just came back from our outstanding 7-day trip to Botswana and Zimbabwe organized by “Discover Africa”.
From the very first moment on when we got in touch with Megan from Discover Africa about 7 month prior to the trip everything was very professional. Megan was very proactive and reactive to all kind of questions and also gave some important information which helped us to select the right camps.
We have been in Okavango Delta and stayed at Camp Okavango. This is a very magic place. If you are coming from a busy city in an industrialized country and suddenly you are put in this significant landscape, is a really outstanding experience. The people in this camp are so friendly and each individual goes far the extra mile to make the stay as extraordinary as it was. The wildlife guides are very experienced and the best part of this camp are the hikes, together with the guides. We have collected so many impressions, which would be far too much for this review.
Just one of “never forget” experiences have been the approach during a hike to a pride of lions which we viewed just like 20 meters away. This is lifetime experience we will never forget. After that we continued to Chobe Game Lodge, which was very different from Okavango, but also very beautiful and outstanding.
Chobe is a very interesting area. We have seen 4 out of the “Big 5” there. Unfortunately no Rhinos, but I think that’s become very rare these days Unfortunatly. Chobe Game Lodge is also an excellent place and the people are doing an outstanding service there. After Chobe we continued to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. We stayed and Victoria Falls Safari Lodge.
Victoria Falls is something very impressing to see. I think once been there, it’s very impressive but we not go there again. Besides the Falls there is noch much around and the area is very expensive and only focuses on tourists. Vic Falls Safari Lodge is nice, but from a Service standpoint not comparable to either Camp Okavango or Chobe Game Lodge.
Overall, from an organizational standpoint, Discover Africa organized a great trip and everything worked out very well. We never had a situation where we felt uncomfortable or did not now how to go ahead. I would express my sincere appreciation to Megan and the whole team at Discover Africa who made this trip possible for us. For sure in future we will again go with Discover Africa.
