Letaka Safaris and Beautiful Botswana: An Unbeatable Combination

Views: 1193 Visited: Aug 2013 Reviewed: Feb 08, 2014

My teenage children and I have been fortunate to have gone on two safaris with Letaka Safaris in Botswana, and we highly recommend this excellent safari operator and this spectacular country. The Letaka guides are knowledgeable and friendly. In their care you will see amazing animals/animal encounters and be well looked after. We saw a cheetah kill an impala and then a leopard take the kill from the cheetah; a lion-hyena battle for a buffalo carcass, a crocodile attempting to steal a leopard's kill, wild dogs feeding their pups, 33 lions on one 10-day trip, 1000 buffalo in the marsh, elephants, hippos, zebras, and really too many creatures to be named. And we saw many beautiful and unusual birds, although ours was not a birding safari.
Thrilling sightings every day - and the Letaka guides know just where to go, when to wait, and when to move on. The Letaka vehicles are comfortable and designed so that everyone has an expansive view. Letaka tented camps hardly feel like "camping," with beds in the tents that are large enough to stand up in, showers and en suite bathrooms. The camp staff take good care of the guests, providing delicious meals and seamlessly moving the camp from location to location. It's exciting to be safe in your tent and hear all kinds of animal sounds outside - a benefit of camping in the bush. With a maximum of nine guests served by a guide, a chef and two camp workers, Letaka Safaris provides a great deal of personal attention to guests. The office staff can help with many trip details and can arrange for additional safari days (beyond a scheduled safari) in Botswana or other nearby countries. We love Letaka and long to travel with them again!
