Outstanding Botswana experience!

In July 2019, we went on the Botswana Wildlife tour (15 days/14 nights) booked through Bench Africa and organised locally by Jenman Safaris. This was an absolutely outstanding experience. Many things contributed to making the trip such a pleasure, notably (1) the assistance from the folks at Bench Africa during the booking phase, as well as the subsequent support (2) the outstanding Jenman guide, for whom nothing was too much trouble.

We had a very friendly group of 12 people who got along from the outset, which certainly helped, and were exceptionally fortunate in terms of seeing a very wide range of wildlife (e.g. we saw lions, a leopard, many types of antelopes, dozens of giraffes and zebras, hundreds of elephants and buffaloes, as well as an endless variety of birds). The local guides who supported our Jenman guide were consistently excellent.

We stayed at several different lodges/camps during the trip. A'Zambezi Lodge at Victoria Falls and Chobe Safari Lodge at Kasane were clean and comfortable, with all tourist facilities. Camp Kwando in Namibia was a delight, with instant access to the river for a pre-dinner exploratory cruise. Guma Lagoon Camp in the Okavango Delta had an excellent location and was also quite good. Mankwe Bush Camp in Moremi Game Reserve was a fairly basic stopgap arrangement that nevertheless worked very well. Indeed the wonderful smiling staff at Mankwe gave us an impromptu concert after dinner on the second night! Nata Lodge was a pleasure for an overnight stop. We finished the tour staying at Elephant's Eye Lodge in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, a luxurious collection of tent chalets with amazing food.

There's a lot of road travel (over 2500 km) and we were out of our comfort zone some of the time, but it was all very worthwhile because of the range of experiences on offer: the tour is a genuine adventure for people of any age. The add-on scenic flight over the Delta in a 4-seater Cessna was special!

We unhesitatingly recommend Bench Africa to anyone considering a trip to that wonderful continent.

Botswana Wildlife

Just returned from Botswana Wildlife. My husband and I had an amazing adventure on this small group tour. All the accomodation was great. My favourites being the Bedouin Camp and the amazing Elephants Eye Lodge where the elephants came to camp each evening. The tented chalets were luxurious plus the chef was fabulous. The food at all places was very good and of a great standard. The guide and driver did a great job of looking after us. Highlights: the animals, the lodges, sunsets, sundowners, the food, and travelling companions, the laughs, the campfires, gin and tonics.
Karen at Bench was very knowledgeable and organised our flights and trip and was great in helping us decide which trip to do.
Don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it.
