Our tailor made safari adventure.
On my first visit to Bench Africa I was asked where I wanted to go, how much was my budget and how long I had to do it. The itinerary offered with a few tweaks was perfect. We had 4 weeks and I particularly wanted to spend time in Capetown, Namibia and Botswana and of course to see Victoria Falls. We wanted to see the countryside, landscape and of course as many of the animals as we could.
The accommodation was 3 - 4 star and excellent. It was diverse, no camp was alike, all were lovely and fitted into their environment in a suitable manner. The staff at the camps were knowledgable, friendly and wonderful ambassadors for their country. We felt privileged to be their guests. Our driver/guide on our 10day safari in Namibia was Peter who went above and beyond our expectations. We loved the”Magic Box” picnics and sundowners. He epitomized all that good and wonderful about Namibia. Thank you Ultimate Safaris and in particular Peter.
Who could not be impressed by Victoria Falls in flood. Wow! Yes we did get drenched. Spectacular!
Chobe Water Villas - take me back any time - a wonderful place to stay. Thank you Ephraim and Gilbert - our boat driver who took us back and forth across the river each day to visit Chobe NP. Culture - our guide - who made sure we saw the lions -thank you.
Gunns Camp - each day the water was flowing into the delta channels - fantastic to see the water rising and understand its life giving properties. Thank you BT an amazing guide and his offsider Jonah.
