    This was heaven for me as I am an avid bird watcher. I lost count of the number of different birds we saw, both from the water, and on walking safaris. Our guide, Chilli B, was amazing - so knowledgable, and his powers of observation...More

    Very nice place, small and intimate by the water. True relaxation - we did the boat drives, the mokoro (dug out boat) and the walking safari and enjoyed them all. As part of the welcoming, the guides explain a bit about the country, the Okavango...More
