Traveling during a pandemic is something else. Christin and her team went more than the extra mile to ensure our trip to Vic Falls was a successful one. First, they allow us to modify the trip from a day trip to an overnight one, giving us more time to enjoy at Livingstone and Vic Falls. Then they allow us to park our rental car at their office. Christin helped over the entire weekend to facilitate our online Zambian e-Visa application and miraculously got us through. They have a very professional team, thank you Lunza for making the initial bookings, Lance for dropping us at the border, and Patrick for picking us back up the following day. They have a jolly good business partner across the border in Zambia, thank you Moyo from JollyBoys for taking care of us during our stay in Zambia. My profound appreciation and gratitude go to these nice people that faithfully and joyfully stay true to the essence of tourism/hospitality, even under such harsh circumstances of a pandemic. Thank you for not losing your heart! Pray that things will be back to normal soon.

We booked a sunset cruise with Christine at Kalahari tours in Kasane. The sunset cruise was exceptional. Christine went over and beyond to help us with other arrangements we had made. Nothing was too much trouble and she gave us excellent advice for the rest of our trip. We would highly recommend Kalahari Tours.

Saw quite a bit of wildlife. Spotted the spoor of lion and tried to follow-up, unfortunately they had other ideas. The guides were professional, knowledgeable and above all friendly. Thanks very much to Rex and his team for an awesome morning in the park.

Response from kalaharichobe, General Manager at Kalahari Tours

Hi BotsBoy thanks so much for the great review, it must have been eerie being some of so few guests travelling with all the borders shut and Chobe so quiet. We are optimistic our Government will open the Borders before November in order to get some normality back and our staff back up and going . We look forward to seeing you up here again soon and please stay safe .

I had the enormous good fortune (I think) of being the only person booked to do the overnight camping trip to Chobe with Thizah at Kalahari Tours. I was picked up on the Bostwana side of the border and taken for coffee and a snack before we did a morning boat trip in a small boat with a handful of travellers. We began by spotting magnificent bird life, then progressed to seeing crocodiles, hippos, water monitors, elephants and Cape buffalo, very exciting indeed. Thizah was great at spotting the birds and animals, and telling us about them, as well as explaining the history of the Botswana/Namibia border of the Chobe River. It was all extremely interesting - and made my self-imposed fixation with visiting as many countries of the world as possible during my trips around the sun seem ridiculous, really, as Namibia was literally metres away but I haven't been there. At the end of the morning boat tour, my group went back for a very nice lunch (save room for dessert!) then we split up, as I was solo on my overnight camping while the others were doing only a day trip. Now, as somebody else pointed out in a review, if you stay overnight, it makes your Kaza visa invalid so you need to buy another one as you exit. Just be aware of that. It was absolutely well worth it though. With Thizah (pronounced Teaser) to myself, I had a wonderful tour. We were able to stop and look at the animals for as long as we wished (or until the animals wandered off) and he is a great guide, who knows the park really well, so aside from the highly elusive leopard, I really didn't feel I missed out on anything. In fact, I felt incredibly fortunate. Our lion sighting was especially memorable. At the time I was there, the rains had yet to come (thankfully they began very soon after) so the wildlife was relatively easy to spot as it had to go to the water sources. I had an interior monologue commentary of David Attenborough in my head quite a bit. Camping was basic but the camp was well set up with a fabulous meal ready when we returned. This is camping in the way it used to be when I was a kid - not "clamping" so I suggest a torch you can use hands free if possible. My torch on my phone did the job, but wouldn't have been ideal for going out to the toilet in the middle of the night - something I couldn't bring myself to do when I felt the call of nature - I saw some movement out of the corner of my eye and held on till morning - turned out it was a honey badger in camp so I made the right decision there. The next morning we set off fairly early and Thizah looked at tracks to explain what animals had been around during the night. Somehow, I had slept through the ruckus of the elephants versus the lions but the lion we had seen the previous day was nowhere to be found. Back to camp for breakfast and a bush shower (one of those canvas bag contraptions - most welcome!) and a rest, then we continued our safari - for many miles until we found herds of zebra then finally we went back to the border crossing and I got another visa and headed back on the boat into Zambia. It was an absolutely brilliant 2 days and a night and I couldn't recommend it more highly. A "bucket list" experience.

The Kalahari tour 2 day and one night camping experience is not to be missed. If you have the kaza visa and spend the night in Botswana then it will become invalid and you will have to buy another. We were never told this and it does not save you any money but now I have two huge visas in my passport that are identical so if you are doing this then get a one time entry into Zambia and then buy the kaza visa when you return. With that being said, this was well organized. We were picked up at our hotel in Zambia, taken to the border and dropped off in Botswana via a ferry. Provided coffee and put in a boat where we saw elephants and hippos, crocs etc. after a quick lunch we we started our safari and the guides were awesome and you felt alone in the wilderness. Camping over night was interesting and not for the faint of heart but such an adventure. I highly recommend Kalahari tours and their guides.
