We are planning our second safari, this time to Botswana and Victoria Falls via Johannisburg. We want to connect with a first rate Safari Company to handle all details of our trip? We went with Micato when we went to Kenya and they were superb. But, now I am retired and there seem to be many high quality, less expensive options. Does anyone have an outfitter they can recommend? We have been talking to The Africa Company, African Odyssey and African Adventures. So far, African Adventures has done the best job for us. Any help would be appreciated. Thx.
Thanks Eric and Michael - we agreed to book with Fish Eagle today. Bert has been great to work with. He has us in three premiere camps in Botswana and a lodge at Victoria Falls. His price is very competitive, which made it an easy choice. We are going this coming January - the Green Season.
We are sailing in the BVI as I write but enjoying the safari planning as well.
Mike--we went to Savuti, Little Vumbura and Mombo in Botswana and the River Club in Vic Falls in 2004. Our trip reports are in the Trip Report Archives, in you want to take a look. Some things have changed, I'm sure, but it was a magnificent trip! Glad to know that Bert is still in business. We were very happy with his services.
mdoyle, not to seem uninformed, but are you talkng about a hunting safari? I realize that photography safaris, sightseeing, etc are common, but I would personally be interested in finding out about hunting safaris myself. I have no idea where to even start with it, but if that is what you are looking at, then I could contact the same outfitters that others have suggested.
We went on a photography safari. I won't tell you what my opinion is of hunting safaris. Wilderness Safaris only has photography safaris, as far as I know. Bert at Fish Eagle, I think, also only handles photography safaris.
