    Written on March 7, 2016
    5.0 - Excellent

    Outstanding and great organized trip led by professionals who also know how to spoil your tummies. 15 days full of highlights: Rhino sanctuary visit, bush camp overnight in Okavango, enjoying the traditional music and dances of the locals. The flight over the delta is absolutely spectacular and a must, spotting wildlife from the air. Chobe river sunset cruise with tons of animals around the water and a safari in the early morning spotting 13 lions eating a baby elephant for breakfast. Visited the majestic Victoria falls and we stand right next to 4 wild rhinos in Matobo NP...and I really mean standing as we were led by the rhino whisperer himself!! Plus the enormous Kruger Park in the end with offering the most spectacular storm I've seen in my life. Africa is just magical!!
