    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 tour was amazing! There are some incredible game drives and fun places to say. A few of the excursions are a bit mediocre and the days on the bus can be very long. It was 100% worth it though. I had a once in a lifetime adventure and will... Show more

    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
