Botswana - Sanctuary Retreats vs Wilderness Safaris vs & Beyond

Jump to last reply

After a week in Krueger in September my wife and I are heading to Botswana for 6-7 days. So far we have had suggested itineraries from the 3 companies mentioned. Sanctuary Retreats trip include 2 nights in each of Stanley Camp, Chiefs Camp and Chobe Chilwero. Wilderness can do 3 nights in Savuti and we can combine that with either Kwando's Lagoon or Lebala for 3 nights. Lastly, & Beyond has suggested 3 nights at Nxabega and Sandibe.

We are seriously confused - the more I read the more confusing it gets! We had wanted to ideally see big game (including hippos) perhaps with some emphasis on water-borne activities after Krueger. We would like comfort but don't need luxury. We would be commencing things from Livingstone and need to get to Joberg to fly home at the end of the Botswana trip.

any advice or suggestions on the 3 options above would be greatly appreciated.
