KK was our chef and he couldn't have made any improvement on his varied and delicious menu, catering for vegetarians and one vegan superbly. Culinary excellence KK, thank you so much. (And all that on a camp oven!)
Neems was our waiter - best gin and tonic ever and cold and waiting for us on arrival in camp - wow Neems, you're the best.
Kubo showed up just at the right time with our shower water and just the right temperature too! Go Kubo!
CJ was amazing - he intuited the right time and places to be at - the hyena den being one example we will never forget - and we appreciated his patience. Love you CJ and we'll be back!
Letaka have hit the jackpot with this tour - no detail left out, great spots to camp, fabulous staff, nothing was too much - including flying in some "bubbles" for a birthday celebration ... We hope the boys are still enjoying some football!!

Botswana is beautiful and we saw incredible animals everyday, but what really made this trip special was the stellar team from Letaka Safaris. It was evident that our guide CJ loves his job. He has a great knack for finding animals and getting in a position so that everyone in the truck has a good view. He is knowledgeable and a joy to be around and kept our group of 6 engaged and laughing.
Mmulla, Kabelo and Buncy were gracious and highly competent. They never missed a beat and we were very well taken care of. The food was delicious and the quality and variety was amazing. If you have the chance to go on safari, do not hesitate to book with Letaka Safaris!
Absolutely Amazing Adventure!

The camps were just the right amount of luxury vs. camping - we slept very well. CJ was a great guide, very knowledgable and showed us a huge amount of wildlife.
The food is some of the best I've eaten anywhere and was all prepared in the bush oven, which was very cool to see. They catered for our family of meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans - and plenty of beers and G&T's too.
An awesome trip, can't recommend enough!

Our guide (Gee) knew the best places to view animals, he was able to follow tracks, and educated us about their characteristics and habits. Gee also shared information about his culture when we sat around the fire after dinner each night.
Our cook (Mmulla) worked miracles on a "bush" stove and oven -- fresh baked bread, fresh baked cakes every day for afternoon tea time, and delicious meals for every lunch and dinner including vegetarian entrees. The support staff of Kebalo and David rounded out the team perfectly.
Although the canvas tents were basic, this team made it feel luxurious. We saw many animals -- elephants, giraffes, lions, leopards, baboons, water buffalo, hypos, crocs, wild dogs, hyenas, black-backed jackals, zebras, wildebeests, over 100 bird species, etc.
There are zero negatives to express about Letaka Safaris. They are known for the best guides (thank you Gee), but they were so much more. After traveling together for 10 days we felt almost like family due to the warmth and care this team expressed throughout the trip. They won't disappoint!
BEST Botswana Safari Company

The following day a rhino family & on the day of our first move a wild dog hunt to follow in an adrenaline filled ride. The rest of the trip followed in that vein, with some incredible events in the campsite.
Robson's skill at finding game and spotting birds was incredible.
Pula's ability to produce bread & cake in a tin camp oven outstanding. Messenger & Jo's camp management & hospitality excellent.
Wonderful experience, excellent guide, chef & support team

Our guide, Frank, was exceptional. His knowledge of flora and fauna was outstanding and he had a great sense of humour. He also had fantastic driving skills which were definitely needed on some of the bush tracks and roads we encountered. We felt safe in his hands at all times.
Our camp was managed by Banda, Ludick and Poster. What a lovely group of men. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Banda prepared the most amazing meals; we ate like kings. The tents were roomy and our beds very comfortable.
We would highly recommend Letaka safaris as a well organised, responsible, ethical operator who go the extra mile to ensure their guests wants and needs are exceeded in every way.
Phenomenal game viewing, exceptional operator.

We had 5 people in the group and we got along great...everyone was easy going with excellent sense of humor. CJ, our guide, was fun and worked hard to make sure we all enjoyed our trip.
In addition to the animals, we saw 10 days of the most beautiful sunrise and sunset...I couldn’t ask for a better tour guide.
One of the kind safari experience!

What made KB, our guide, more amazing was his disposition. He was always smiling and laughing. You knew he loved Botswana, the Game Reserve and the animals - and this made you love every moment of the trip.
The family agreed that we would manage expectations and keep an open mind for anything that would happen. We never knew what would happen and what to expect. This experience is beyond anything we have experienced. Thank you Letaka, KB, Banda, Ludick and Poster

The whole trip was a highlight, truly. The guide, the team, the food, the camps, the wildlife. It was all amazing. If I had to choose just one highlight it would be wildlife related. Perhaps the afternoon that elephants quietly marched through our camp on the way to a tasty tree, or the amazing array of wildlife we saw, or perhaps it was the evening by the campfire watching the lunar eclipse. They were all highlights!
