This comprehensive tour will create a greater understanding and appreciation of Botswana as a whole and is certain to create memories that last a lifetime.

Game drive in Tau Pan Camp

Today will begin with an early morning wake up call, followed fireside gathering to fuel up with hot coffee and tea, hearty porridge and freshly baked muffins. Because mammals are most active in the low heat of the mornings and evenings, the early departure will increase the chances of unusual sightings. Game drives are navigated within Toyota 4x4 vehicles that are customized for maximum game viewing ability. No more than 6 guests are seated per vehicle, with 2 rows of 3 to ensure proximity to the guides, which will allow good hearing and understanding of their interpretations. Drives are led by a two person team, consisting of a professional guide and a tracker to create a quality experience together, without missing any tracks or signs. Due to the location within a National Park, night drives are prohibited. ...read less

The trip you set up for me was flawless.

The trip you set up for me was flawless. The guide met all my expectations. He was helpful and protective. I did learn that in Africa, time is a relative thing. I soon learned that when James told me we were one half hour from anywhere, I could count on an hour. I saw every major animal, but one, including the Black Rino, one of the most endangers specie in the Crater. I took 900 pictures. I can tell you without a doubt, that your people can take care of a person my age and should promote that fact. I loved Nxabega. However, I was prevented from going to my tent for a rest when a family of Elephants started eating the trees between the lunch area and my tent. They were all first rate camps, but Sopa was exceptional. If you wish me to fill out anything, let me know. One funny story. I needed to go to the bathroom. James asked me to wait while he drove about a half a mile to high ground, so he could watch out for animals while I attended to the problem behind his 4×4. As we get to about fifty yards from the place we planned to stop; three lions walked over the hill and past our vehicle. You would be surprised how fast the urge to go disappears under these circumstances.

We all loved Cape Town and Franschoek

We’re on our last day at Kagga Kamma and I wanted to let you know that we are having a great time and everything is according to plan. We all loved Cape Town and Franschoek. While we were unsure about KK when we arrived, it has turned out to be a great experience. Just today we saw ostrich, eland, wildebeest, red hartebeest, zebra, botinbok, Springbok and cave paintings. Ted and i are taking the ATV’s this afternoon. It is a huge reserve here. The weather today is sunny and cool. Off to the airport in early morning to fly to Kruger. Hopefully the last leg of our trip will be as good as the first.

I highly recommend Yampu as a company and Karolina in particular as an agent.

Karolina Guilcapi at Yampu Tours has provided excellent service for me and my brother on two separate trips, one to Mexico last August and, more recently, South Africa (and Botswana and Zimbabwe) last month. In particular on the South Africa trip she worked closely with me to combine and fine tune a number of their tours. I appreciated her recommendation to go to several game reserves and parks, rather than a lot of time at one. And my brother had some last minute complicated logistics (scheduling an all-day teleconference in the middle of our trip and rescheduling his flights when he missed his original flights) for which Karolina was instrumental in coordinating. I highly recommend Yampu as a company and Karolina in particular as an agent.
