I have done safaris all my life but this was par excellence in every respect! We saw all the big predators at very close range, with cubs, in an exquisite ecological environment. A big group of friends with children, we were treated to great comfort in the tented camp lovely food and wine around a campfire......the luxury of a lodge. Alistair was so knowledgeable and congenial and great fun. His staff were efficient and friendly....it was a truly wonderful 5 days with Embrace Safaris and the amazing Alistair Wilmot team. We will do this again!

Coming from Zimbabwe and having had the great fortune to have 'been to the bush' throughout my childhood, expectations for this safari to Savute and Khwai were high. And I can say without a doubt, that I was blown away by Embrace Safaris! Alistair is a brilliant guide - it was fascinating to watch him hanging off the truck to track - a particularly memorable moment was when one of us thought we had spotted a snake track on the road. Alistair slowed the vehicle down, glanced at it for 2 seconds and: 'nope, that's a leopard dragging a kill'. U-turn! And off we went to find it - and find it Alistair did! We had 5 days of magic in pristine wilderness, with a very charming host, in a luxurious camp and were spoilt by the friendly and efficient staff. I can't recommend this experience more highly and my friends, family and I have come away with fantastic memories. Thank you so much Alistair and Embrace Safaris! So hope to be back again soon!

Alistair is a brilliant guide and host. His crew were fantastic . Comfortable camp and great food. As for the wildlife, it was beyond expectation and mostly due to Alistair's incredible skill as a guide. I have had the privilege of being on a number of Safaris in Botswana and I can honestly say this was one of the most incredible experiences. Highly recommended.
