Dear Annette
We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Botswana!!!
As you know, our travel arrangements included a stay at Senyati Safari Camp.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Senyati. The ‘vibe’ of the place was great and we found the facilities perfectly suited to our needs and style of travel. Its location and proximity to other tourist points in the area is an added bonus.
We found Lou to be a good host and his ‘honesty bar’ on the game-viewing deck was really unusual in this day and age.
Senyati will almost certainly be included in our travel plans should we visit the area again.

I would just like to bring it to your attention that I have checked my bank statement and note that the refund of R 900 has yet to be made. I trust that this will be undertaken at your Finance departments earliest convenience.

Once again, thank you for your assistance.
Regards

My toer deur Botswana was vir my ‘n ongelooflike ervaring. Van die suide tot in die  noorde is daar iets wat jou opval van die land. Dis skoon, almal wat daar woon maak dit nog mooier met al hul vriendelikheid en die feit dat hulle so na aan die natuur lewe, en dan is daar al die diere op die paaie. Dit laat jou dink aan vryheid en die pas wat soveel stadiger is as hier by ons - nie mense wat jaag in die strate of op die hoof paaie nie maak dit soveel lekkerder en makliker om alles in die natuur om jou waar te neem. Die dorpies is klein en so tradisioneel en ver uitmekaar geleë met net die beeste en donkies en boerbokke wat jou herinner daar iewers is nog mense wat daar rond woon. Die noorde van Botswana is ongelooflike, veral as jy Kasane area besoek en die Olifante langs die paaie sien en ook ander wild as jy mooi kyk vir hulle. My hoogtepunt was egter die nag by Senyati waar ons gebly het. Dit was ongelooflik by die kuierarea by die watergat waar die diere kom drink het, die mense het ons so welkom laat voel en ons het tot laat die nag gesit en kyk hoe die olifante ongeveer 15 treë van ons af kom water drink en hoe die klein olifantjies al om die groter olifante in die water rond beweeg. Ons het die geleentheid gehad om die swartwitpens bokke te sien en’n groot trop buffels, bobbejane en selfs ‘n jakkals, dit was so rustig daar en jy kon die verskillende geluide in die natuur waarneem wat dit seker een van my ongelooflikste ervarings was. Dankie Senyati vir die bewaring van die natuur en jul gasvryheid en om mens weer die rustigheid te gee waaroor almal net kan droom, want waar kan jy nou nader aan die natuur wees as juis net daar.

Senyati Safari Camp was a highlight.  It is owned by the very friendly Louw Barnard.  There are 3 thatched double en-suite units, with outside self-catering ( self contained ) facilities (sink and cupboard with basic utensils for mainly braaiing purposes.  There is a great game viewing deck at waterhole, where elephant are regularly seen, and which is excellent for birdwatching.

We stayed in two chalets overlooking the waterhole created by the owner. The accommodation is comfortable and this time the cutlery/crockery was adequate with toaster, two plate stove and kettle provided. They also gave us firewood every day. From here we did our trips to Vic Falls, Chobe game reserve and sunset cruise. The waterhole was a unique experience and we sat for hours watching the social interacting of literally hundreds of elephants using the waterhole. This will be one of the highlights of our trip.

Senyati – we eventually stayed there for 7 nights and enjoyed every moment there. We used this as a base to operate from and we spent many hours on the deck at the waterhole and made wonderful friends. We enjoyed the “bush” experience there and the private ablutions and “kitchen” at each campsite is fantastic. Oom Louw is just wonderful and we will definitely go there again in future.

Good Morning Geraldine,
 HOLIDAY IN BOTSWANA...
 It was the most wonderful experience!  All the booking that you did for us was perfect, we have no complains at all.
You are most welcome to have a look on some of our photo's on facebook, Karien Booysen (karienb@yebo.co.za) - Botswana Vakansie.
The adventure that goes together with this vacation in Botswana is unforgettable.  We were 6 vehicles, travelling together, we had our break-downs, but we helped each other all along!  Pulling vehicles out of the very sandy roads, and of course the water is very high, crossing most of the small roads and bridges...

Thank you for your email, have a great day!

Kind Regards
 Karien Booysen
