October 2018 Safari Review

We had always wanted to do a safari in Botswana together and family events aligned this year to make it happen (60th Birthday year and a relatives wedding).

The 10 days in the bush were magical! The isolated camps, eating delicious meals by the campfire under the star’s, and watching the Full Moon from our beds were very special and rejuvenating. The game viewing exceeded our expectations. After several trips to Africa Laura finally saw all the big carnivores and with excellent views and multiple times.

The Leopard kill and the Wild Dogs were absolutely thrilling, and we enjoyed seeing animals and birds unique to the region and literally living amongst the wild animals.

We also enjoyed our two boat rides. The one at Chobe was a great introduction to the trip and Brooks, our guide, was excellent. Our sincere thanks to Jane and her exceptional support team (Victor, Pinnie and Manga) for a fabulous trip and the wonderful memories.

September/October 2018 Botswana Safari Review

Thank you so much, Jane, Max, Pini, Manga and Victor for an unforgettable vacation.

This was my first #safari in Africa and could not have been a better experience. From an incredible team, lovely campsites and spectacular game drives, I loved every minute of it!! My most special animal sighting was the Buffalo herd heading into the Sunrise.

You have done an amazing job putting this safari together and I definitely hope to be back one day to explore more of Botswana.

September 2018 Safari Reviews

This was a return visit to Botswana for us. We had very high expectations, and they were completely exceeded.

Wonderful sightings every day with too many highlights to list. The lion and hyena in the camp were special. Washing clothes under the close supervision of an elephant, multiple leopard sightings and watching a lion roar. And of course with the birds and other wildlife that make Botswana so amazing.

The Landscapes added to the experience and to be here with the tree’s and shrubs in flower, with the beautiful scent as we drove was a huge bonus.

Thank you to all the team.

September 2018 Safari Review

I went with #UlindaSafari Trails on a 10-day safari from Kasane to Maun in September 2018 – a trip that will last long in my memory. Jane and her team did an outstanding job. The four different campsites we stayed in were beautiful and the tents very comfortable (even with an en-suite toilet to them!). We saw so much wildlife and our guides always had a very good intuition where we might be able to view something special. My favourite moments were watching a huge herd of buffalos striding into the sunrise, a lion family feasting on a buffalo and a hyena stealing the prey of two very disappointed leopards.

The food: Oh, the food! I have no idea how the team managed to cook all these tasty dishes in the bush. But there was a lot of variety and even freshly baked bread. A very nice touch was the #GinandTonic #sundowners and later in the evening beer and wine around the campfire, accompanied by Jane’s amusing stories from her years as a tour guide.

The vehicles were perfect for travelling longer distances between the campsites and the open roof allowed for some 360° views when on game drives. Since there are no more than 4 people in a vehicle, everyone had a window seat.

I highly recommend Jane and her team and hope to return one day! Thanks so much!

July 2018 Safari Review

This was not our first #safari, having done several in Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Botswana and South Africa. But it has been our most memorable. Jane’s many years of experience makes her safaris outstanding.

Ours was a #privatesafari, with Jane and her staff of three. We chose #Ulinda because of Jane’s experience. She is a photographer and positions the vehicle for best light and photos. Her vehicles are custom made, closed in, that seat no more than 4 with a pop-up top (very comfortable).

We are not campers and Jane has the option of upgrading to a large Meru tent with Spring beds and private ablutions which we found very comfortable.

Excellent food and good variety, the campgrounds are in spectacular settings. The animal experiences were amazing.
Thank you, Jane!

August 2018 Botswana Safari Review

We had a great twelve-day safari with Jane, Victor, Pini and Manga doing everything to ensure a wonderful trip.

We saw lots of animals (Leopards🐆, Lions🦁, tons of Elephants, Wild dogs, Honey Badgers, a Python and much more besides*) and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We felt out of time, and it was a good feeling to escape from the hyper-connected world for the duration of this trip. The food was great and the camping luxurious.

A special thank you to Jane for finding the Wildlife, getting us in a good spot to watch and photograph the animals and birds, and giving us all the time in the world to enjoy watching them.

Thanks for everything!!

You and your staff made my 60th year on earth with a bucket list safari and experience I will never forget.

So much knowledge and experience to find wonderful campsites and more animals and birds that we ever imagined. Honey Badger on a log, Leopard eating antelope in a tree, family of lions with 3 cubs, elephants doing amazing things, wild dogs hunting with a puppy pack… sunsets with a Gin and Tonic.

This was the best possible introduction to safari life we could have had. Thank you all.

I didn’t really know what to expect from my first safari, but this 10 days surpassed all expectations. Huge care and effort from Jane, and wonderful attention (and food) from the camp staff. I couldn’t praise the organization more – excellent. Richard Blackmore
 
Thank you to everyone for a fantastic experience. Really enjoyed the camping, the way we were looked after, and the food was superb. Jane was a great guide and hostess and gave us some amazing animal viewings.

Professional way in which you deliver.

The safari was truly an authentic Okavango Experience. Thankyou very much to you and your crew for all you
have done. We will look back at this safari and our time with you as a lifetime highlight. Well done!!

December 2017 Safari Reviews!

I really did not know what to expect from a Safari, Botswana and Ulinda. I came in with no preconceived notions or expectations.
 
The result was incredible. Botswana and Jane offered an authentic experience in which we were able to see, photograph and live amongst the wildlife. We saw and did more in a short week than I thought possible. I truly felt as if we had gotten away from society and were experiencing a different part of life.
 
The Camp, Food and Staff were amazing.
 
A special thank you to Victor, Manga and Gase. Being Christmas I thought we would feel alone or isolated being away from family. However, this group has truly made us feel at home, all the best and take care.

This safari has been an incredibly rewarding experience. A life changing experience I would say.
It has been so much fun being out here and seeing the beautiful animals and scenery.
Thank you Jane and your crew.
Hope we can come back soon.

October 2017 Client Safari Review!

My sister in law invited me to join her on this trip of a lifetime to Botswana. She was the one who selected Ulinda Safari’s and I am so happy she found them! They supply all of the support – the tents, the food the set up and preparation. All of this made us comfortable and extremely well fed! The best part is having an expert guide Jane with us to find and explain the abundant and amazing wildlife we got to see.This far exceeded all expectations. Thank you so much!!!
