What an extraordinary experience !! The guides and the trackers have an extraordinary connection with the land and the animals. They are so knowledgeable as well. The accommodations were superb, the camps very ample and comfortable with not too many people. Great food and drinks as well. The staff from all camps were very nice and caring. Wonderful life experience. Will share with all our friends hoping we can get somebody else to enjoy the experience. Many thanks!

Having been to Africa on safari 4 times previously and not seen them, we were on a quest to find African wild dogs. I contacted The African Wild after doing an internet search on the dogs and their webpage came up. Rory set us up with a trip into 2 camps in the Kwando Concession in Botswana. We saw the wild dogs on our very first game drive!

Our trip was set-up excellently with all our accommodations and transfers going as planned. The accommodation and food at each lodge was amazing. We could not have asked for better. The staff at both lodges were very kind and friendly and really made us feel welcome. Our game drives were loaded with highlights. The guides and trackers at the Kwando camps are absolutely excellent. They are knowledgeable and dedicated to making the game drives memorable.

We can’t thank Rory and The African Wild enough for planning a truly fabulous safari for us. We loved every minute!

We had the most amazing time on our safari organized by The African Wild. Rory was attentive to every email and request. And helped us along the way with so many details that we did not even know we needed. The trip was smooth from the pickup in Maun, to the flights, and the beautiful lodges. We could not have had a better experience. Thank you!

What can I say?! Everything was amazing- from start to finish. Rory did a fantastic job in tailoring the perfect safari for me and my girlfriends. Everything went so smoothly. We had the best time; saw all the animals we wanted and came home with incredible memories! Could not have asked for better. Thank you for an epic trip!

We had an absolutely wonderful time in Botswana. Especially in the Okavango Delta. Many thanks to The African Wild and Rory Sheldon who organized our trip!

How do we begin to list the highlights of our time in Botswana?…. all the highlights compete for the top spot; the people, the lodges, the animals, the birds, the wide open space and night skies! But none of them would have been possible without the ease of working with The African Wild. Planning a family trip (daughters ages 12 & 13) takes special consideration and it was figured out with ease with conversations with Rory – as he sought to understand what we were hoping for. We loved experiencing two lodges and the balance of game drives, walking and mokoros. We loved game drives for being able to cover larger areas, and blissfully watch a leopard try to catch breakfast, or lion laze about after their breakfast. Being on foot, or in mokoros, created an incredible experience to be able to watch and learn about the wildlife. While our time was too short in Botswana, we loved every moment and are already dreaming about our return visit. Thank you!

The African Wild organized the best safari that we could have ever hoped for. We were so well taken care of from the minute we arrived until the minute we left. We were lucky enough to see pretty much all the animals, and this included seeing amazing animals in the lodges. The African Wild helps to connect tourists to the wild through incredible encounters – by car, mokoro, and walking. At the same time, it was a completely safe and luxurious experience. Thank you for everything!
