“I cannot begin to tell you how stunning this trek is. Your group almost has the whole trek to yourselves. It'a a beautiful and serene hike that's not too difficult. The climb up felt very gradual and not too strenuous. Our guide Percy was the best. He knows everything there is to know about local culture, nature, and history. We had an incredible trip thanks to these guys!”

Important 

Please contemplate bringing extra spending money for personal expenses during your trip: snacks, drinks, souvenirs, tips and souvenirs. As a general guideline we recommend budgeting US$10-15 per day. Most spending will be in Botswana Pula (for incidental expenses along the way, optional activities, most additional accommodation before/after the trip)  but it’s a good idea to bring along some US$ cash for any international airport taxes or visas (US Dollars in clean, un-torn, post 2006 edition notes). Only Botswana Pula is accepted in Botswana. Don’t forget to allow money for before and after the tour if you are spending time in Victoria Falls.

- Spending money is best carried as cash in Botswana Pula or US dollars (US Dollars in clean, un-torn, post 2006 edition notes). Sterling or Euro can also be exchanged into local currency on arrival and as you travel. Your guide will give general guidance about spending during the tour.

- Currencies are as follows: US Dollar, Botswana Pula.

- ATM machines are found in Victoria Falls, Livingstone, Kasane and in Maun, Botswana although may be unreliable (so we ask that you please do not rely on them).

- Credit cards can be used to pay for some optional activities although fees for use may be higher than you are accustomed to at home. 

- This is a full participation safari. You are asked to play your part in (for instance) pitching and striking camp each day. The safari operates in remote wilderness areas where facilities are few or non-existent and where we carry in and erect (and dismantle) the camp ‘bush’ toilet and ‘bucket’ shower each day. Please also note that the tour involves travelling each day and covers a considerable area: the Best of Botswana is essentially a ‘driving’ tour on mostly 4 x 4 tracks.
