    All was great except the village walk in Maun( I believe) was a holiday so our guide took us to a political church service! Singing was good but was not what we paid to see. Very disappointed!

    Overall, this was a good tour. Some days we were in the van for endless hours...but I understand that this was necessary. The location in Maun, although good in many ways including the food there, caused a lot of extra driving to the boat depot.... Show more
