Recent Guest Itineraries for Botswana and Beyond

Raymond and Janine experienced Botswana’s most unforgettable wildlife and landscapes in the Okavango Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve, which sits on the eastern edge of this lush wetland, before travelling to cosmopolitan Cape Town. In the Mother City, they visited Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years of his 27-year incarceration, and experienced a local township tour.

“The accommodation, food and hospitality at &Beyond Sandibe are superb with good game/rangers (driver and spotter). It was wonderful to introduce our friends to Cape Town which is a stunning city of contrasts (mountains/oceans; urban/rural; first world/third world; etc). Delaire Graff was a highlight, the Zeitz MOCAA a wonderful surprise and Robben Island and the township tours very insightful.

Overall, our two weeks in Botswana and Cape Town with good friends was very special, enjoyable and thought-provoking time which we will remember for a long time to come.

Thanks to you and Marco for all your help and advice which is very much appreciated.” Read more »

As part of a 70th birthday celebration trip, Ricky and family spent Christmas at in vibrant Camps Bay, Cape Town, before moving on to the Sabi Sand to kick off their safari in one of South Africa‘s most luxurious lodges. The next stop was the magnificent Victoria Falls before spending the final three nights in northern Botswana‘s Chobe Riverfront, which is renowned for high concentrations of wildlife which roam lush floodplains and dense mahogany and teak woodlands.

“I wanted to reach out and say a massive thank you to you and others who contributed to make our very special family trip possible and of course extremely memorable for everyone.

What an incredible experience we had over the past few weeks and how special to do it all together as an extended family. It is really difficult to verbalize to others just how special it was.” Read more »

David and Susan explored some of the most spectacular parts of South Africa, Botswana and Zambia over two weeks last year, starting in Cape Town where they enjoyed four nights at an elegant property conveniently located at the V&A Waterfront. They also visited Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands, staying in a luxurious vineyard hotel and experiencing some of the country’s best food, wine and art on a series of privatey-guided tours. Moremi Game Reserve was next, whose diverse ecosystem supports an incredibly wide spectrum of wildlife, ranging from large herds of buffalo, wildebeest and zebra, to the rare sitatunga and lechwe antelope, lion, cheetah and packs of wild dog. The couple then hopped on a chartered flight to the 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve followerd by two nights on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, just upstream from Victoria Falls.

“Overall, this may be the best trip we have ever taken. We loved every day, every moment and every exciting experience.

The safari part was the very best. Botswana was wonderful, seeing the animals up close was mind-boggling… Louise, you did a great job organising our trip. Your work was faultless. Your creativity was essential and much appreciated. You made everything seamless and oh so easy. We would not hesitate a second to recommend you to others.” Read more »
