Okavango Delta tour guides/safaris
« on: February 12, 2018, 02:08:10 pm »
Any recommendations for a reputable organisation that can organise a tour for a family from outside South Africa?

One of my colleagues from Michigan wants to take his family to the Okavango Delta in August and he was talking to this company: https://www.okavangodelta.com/

They have no online reviews and are based in the UK. I don't know if they are dodgy or not. Does anybody know of them? They also go by Ngamiland Explorations.

He is combining the trip with a visit to his wife's family in Lesotho (the Yank even speaks fluent Sotho  ;D )

Any tips welcome!  :thumleft:

Best to visit 4x4 Community (http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/), search around there.

Also try - http://www.ndmtravelagency.com/camps.html or http://www.botswanafootprints.com/

Both are rated as good on the 4x4 Community forum.  :thumleft:

JC - for a while when I was young and stupid I ran a small outfit doing 4x4 tour guiding up there.  I ditched this about 12 years ago in favour of bike touring but still have many contacts in the 4x4 industry.

The most important thing for your family to decide is whether they want to do the self drive thing in a hired 4x4 or would they prefer the higher end (in product as well as price) pampered and fully provided for setup.

If they want the self drive thing, they should join into the overland forum (google is your friend) or the T4A forum where they will get fantastic support.

Love your life. Take pictures of everything. Tell people you love them. Talk to random strangers. Do things you're scared to do. So many of us die without remembering all the little moments. Take your life and make it the best story ever.
