I AM REALLY GLAD WE ADDED THE BOTSWANA PORTION. IT WAS AMAZING!
The trip was simply amazing!!
I will start with a big thank you to you for the great organization. Your flexibility in all the changes and advises was greatly appreciated! I usually do not go through travel agencies, you may have changed my mind for the future!
Regarding the trip, it was probably a 9 out of 10 for us.
I am really glad we added the Botswana portion. It was amazing! The place was really remote (exactly what I was looking for) and Pelo Camp was perfect. Staff amazing and service very personalized and genuine. I would definitely recommend this camp! 2 days were just fine.
Onguma The Fort was very nice 2! We really like the set-up and the activities of the camp. The camp was probably less special than the Pelo Camp – less personal touch and more hotel type (but still very nice!) A lot of activity around the waterhole with lions 1 night. Really nice!
We ended driving through Etosha park to reach Damaraland Camp. I am glad we did that as we say tons of animals on our way. It took us the full day but very very cool. Road was pretty scenic, especially the last 2 hours.
Great location for the Damaraland Camp with amazing landscapes. Very nice staff, genuine with some very cool activities. I am not sure I would recommend though staying 3 nights. 2 would have probably been enough.
They have this very cool evening 3 days a week with traditional dinner. Not to be missed by guests!! We really enjoyed it.
Next time, we will probably mix a bit the type of camps meaning adding some more adventurous type of accommodations; maybe to discover the country in a new way.
Regarding the percentage of travel with flights and driving, we didn’t feel it was too much at all. Most of the people we have talked to during our trip were saying that they were staying 1 or 2 nights in each camp. I would agree with this, 2 is probably the right number (except Etosha where you have plenty of animals to see so 3 was perfect).
We will certainly go back to this part of the world, we loved it!
Thanks a lot for everything.
