Okavango Delta Safari Review

James from United Kingdom travelled with Discover Africa in April 2022

Incredibly friendly, helpful and professional.

When considering a safari, we were not sure what we wanted, and only had a rough idea about region and budget. Within a day of contacting Discover Africa, we were equipped with multiple options in multiple countries at a variety of budgets. The itineraries offered were all exciting and having spoken further with our agent they could be further tailored to our needs. We ended up going above our budget, because the package deal was exactly what we wanted in the dates we wanted. Safaris are not cheap because of the nature of the environment, vehicle maintenance, specialist guides, and the logistic support associated with it. We saw and spoke with many other people during our time there and came away genuinely believing we had been with the best and had enjoyed the most rewarding time.

Our trip consisted of connecting flights (on progressively smaller planes), from Johannesburg, to Kasane and then West to Xanaka airport on the edge of the Okavango. We then had 9 nights in three different tented camps that moved with us through three different safari areas. The tents were well maintained, insect free (with good door discipline) and equipped with en suite toilet and shower. They were camping style but warm water was available, they were hygenic and service from the camp staff was exceptional. The partnered Letaka safari group were outstanding throughout. Every meal provided was excellent, the majority of the food of restaurant quality cooked on an open fire or in a camp oven. I have no idea how the chef made such amazing bread every day!

Truly a great experience with fantastic organisation. 11/10

The guide Robson, was outstanding, to the point where other guides deferred to his experience and knowledge. We were on safari at the end of the wet season when grass is high and animals sometimes difficult to spot, but through a combination of tracking, observation and local knowledge we missed nothing. Indeed we saw things things that far surpassed out expectations. His knowledge of flora, fauna and birdlife was extensive.

On the end of our trip we tagged on a short trip to Victoria Falls and some single night stays in lodges. Both lodges were excellent, the transfers and help at the border was seemless and our connecting flight to return worked perfectly. Having spent more than we intended initailly we had absolutely no regrets after the trip, it was the best holiday we have ever had (and I have traveled round a bit).

I should note that at the start of our trip from the UK, our main flight was cancelled with just 30 mins before departure. This effectively threw into jeopardy the entire trip. One call to Discover Africa and everything was sorted, with new flights and links arranged before we even touched down in Johannesburg. This is a credit to the company and we could not be more grateful.
