What a trip! It was absolutely perfect, perfect weather, perfect lodges, perfect guides, and perfect animals! Can't wait to share pictures and adventures with you who know and love the magic of Botswana. Thank you so much for guiding us on our trip.
Margaret, Norwich, VT
We had a fantastic adventure and saw an amazing variety of animals. GrassTrack Safaris has both the knowledge and the contacts to answer questions and add intrigue to what is one of the best undiscovered adventures. In fact, my daughters enjoyed this African safari better than the week we spent in Paris and are looking for any reason to return!
Dave, Monroe, WA
I was looking for a different type of safari that would show me the wilder side of the bush. I booked The Buffalo Safari with GrassTrack Safaris and it was an incredible experience! Grasstrack Safaris did an excellent job organizing the trip and the guides, food, and vehicles were great. It was an unforgettable experience!
Shawn, Denver, CO
My safari was incredible! A camping safari is the perfect experience for travelers with a sense of adventure and who are looking for an authentic African safari. My safari was a truly life changing experience. Highly recommended!
John, Fort Collins, CO
GrassTrack Safaris arranged our recent trip to Botswana. In every way this adventure was A plus. Every travel connection went like clockwork including flights on small planes. Each game camp ("rustic elegance!") was different -- different terrain/views and different animals and birds, and always a welcoming staff. Food and accommodations were terrific. And the guides were extraordinary in their knowledge, their ability to track the animals, and in their friendly and helpful manner. We never could have planned such a wonderful trip on our own, and in ten short days, we fell in love with Botswana.
Jim, Strafford, VT
Our leader, Dan Hopkins, and guide, Steve, demonstrated vast patience and deep curiosity in observing wildlife, and shared their compelling interest in conservation and understanding of areas of wildlife/human conflict. They could not have been more engaging, and their enthusiasm was contagious. They both combined incredible focus and wonderful good humor, and together (with our super congenial little group!) made our safari experience truly memorable. It was an amazing and wonderful trip in every way, definitely a "trip of a lifetime.

We booked the Leopard Safari and had the adventure of our lives! There is nothing that compares to lying in your tent at night listening to the elephants feeding nearby. GrassTrack Safaris walked us through all the details on packing and what to expect so we felt well prepared. Our guide and fellow travelers made this the trip of a lifetime.
Debbie, New York City, NY
It's pretty daunting to consider planning a camping safari in Botswana. Who is want to trust? It was nice to have a local company that we had read about. Grasstrack Safaris and Dan Hopkins helped us bridge that gap. We had a really good experience. The guide and cook were outstanding. The trip was well organized and we were well taken care of.
Ben and Marlene, Hanover, NH
Just back from our Botswana trip from Kasane to Maun booked with GrassTrack Safaris. We went through Chobe and Moremi parks and finished with a Mokoro trip in the Okavango Delta followed by a plane ride over the Delta. Thanks for the great help booking this wonderful adventure!
