Had a very nice day, everything went smoothly from pick up to drop off. We had Brook for our guide and he was fantastic, very patient and obliging. I might just mention that if you have water with your lunch, you will be charged. There could be water and juice on the buffet table but we didn’t see it.

We had a good day in Botswana and saw lots of animals, despite it being the rainy season. Only saw one of the big 5 (elephants), but saw numerous birds, impala, antelope, hippo, baboons and giraffe. We even saw a hyena on the return trip to Zimbabwe. The Botswana company used for this particular excursion appears to be quite small, as there was only my wife & I on the trip (other excursions appeared to have 20 - 30 people on them). This meant was had our own guide for the day, who was very good. The game drive in the morning lasted 2 hours, 30 minutes, which was less than the 3 hours that I expected. Buffet lunch was excellent and included 3 courses. Afternoon boat trip was in a small boat, enabling you to get close to the river bank. Boat trip lasted about 2 hours, again less than I was expecting. Transportation was good throughout and border crossings were very easy, although had to wait 40 minutes at the border on the return for another trip to return. Overall, an enjoyable trip.

It was a great experience to see the animals so close from the boat and from the jeep. Think of the double entry (2 entries costs $ 45 pp) at the airport when you enter Zimbabwe so that you can come back to Zimbabwe after your trip from Botswana.After Botswana you only get a stamp in your passport (it costs nothing) , A guild picked us up at the hotel and brought us back to the hotel around 5pm.
