3 dream weeks thanks to a tour operator who listens! | 3 semaines de rêve grâce à un TO à l'écoute !!!!

Written on: August 31, 2015   |   I visited in August 2015 Many mail exchanges with Thierry to build this three-week trip: 14 days driving through Namibia, two days to discover Victoria Fall falls six days and finally distributed in three destinations in Botswana. Thierry remained on high alert to answer all our questions and changes in the structures of our trip. He also offered alternatives that were ALL proven to be wonderful surprises!

The pace was perfect. The recommended car rental company was top-notch. We were surprised and amazed by the many landscapes of Namibia, its starry heavens, those roads that we believe are endless but full of surprises! The flora and fauna were on rendez-vous in Botswana ... but above all, as in Namibia, kindness and thoughtfulness of everyone we met and who made this journey is so special.

Thierry was also attentive, where possible, to offer us stops away from it all, where, thanks to solar energy, our days started at dawn and ended at sunset. Following the tiny mishap of a scheduled taxi that never came to collect us, Thierry repaid us the next day the service we initially paid for twice. A pro who loves what he does and fully knows what it offers!

Thierry, THANKS !!!!

De nombreux échanges de mails avec Thierry pour construire ce voyage de 3 semaines : 14 jours en voiture à travers la Namibie, 2 jours pour découvrir les chutes de Victoria Fall et enfin 6 jours répartis en 3 destinations au Botswana. Thierry est resté en alerte maximum pour répondre à toutes nos questions et changements lors de la constructions de notre voyage. Il nous a aussi proposé des alternatives qui se sont TOUTES révélées être de magnifiques surprises ! Le rythme était parfait. Le loueur de voiture conseillé juste au top. Nous avons été surpris et émerveillés par les multiples paysage de la Namibie, de ses cieux étoilés, de ces routes que l'on croient interminables mais qui sont pleines de surprises ! La faune et la flore étaient au rendez-vous au Botswana... mais surtout, comme en Namibie, la gentillesse et la prévenance de tous ceux que nous avons rencontré et qui ont fait que ce voyage soit si spécial. Thierry a aussi été attentif, lorsque cela était possible, pour nous proposer des arrêts loin de tout, où, grâce à l'énergie solaire, nos journées commençaient à l'aube pour s'achever au coucher du soleil. Suite à l'infime petit dérapage d'un taxi prévu qui n'est pas passé nous prendre, Thierry nous a dès le lendemain remboursé du service que nous avions finalement du payé deux fois. Un Pro qui aime ce qu'il fait et qui connait à fond ce qu'il propose!

MERCI Thierry !!!!

We did our honeymoon with Biwakwango.

We have no complaints, the choice of dishes was perfect, authentic, natural and quality. Thierry's advice was precious and always tailored, personalized and courteous.

We also thank Biwakwango for the quality of e-mail exchanges and their responsiveness. A quick answer to any question.

The stay was fantastic and we le... read more

The 14-day circuit in Zambia was super well-organized and balanced between the 3 parks: Lower Zambezi, South Luangwa and Kasanka. The choice of lodges was perfect both for their hospitality and for the activities proposed and supervised by competent guides. We had unforgettable moments. Would recommend the canoe and the Muchinga escarpment! Thank you Thierry and at... read more

We started off in the awesome Namib dunes at sunset and experienced the searing heat of the Sossusvlei, with flocks of oryx to keep us company. Then onward to the rock paintings and engravings at Brandberg and Twyfelfontein, even meeting up with the Damaraland elephants during a four-hour hike. Etosha was breathtaking, with such a variety of wildlife that it's almo... read more

It was our second trip with Biwakwango. After S. Africa and the unforgettable Lesotho, we discovered Namibia. Gorgeous landscapes! Walls of ocher-colored dunes, picnic in the vast minerals, encounters with locals, super hike in Naukluft and watching a magnificent fawn in marvelous circumstances.

We wanted to combine a safari trip to South Africa with a couple of friends. We were keen to get off the beaten path. We contacted Thierry Biwakwango, a local agency, and his proposals were consistent with our expectations.
Our choice was wise. We left for 19 days in November 2015, where we did two safaris (Kruger and Imfolosi) and treks (Swaziland, Drakensberg r... read more

Biwakwango was our local service provider on a family trip to Earth Aventure. For us and our two children (11 and 13) it turned into private trip (2 participants couldn't embark from Europe). What a great experience we have lived: whale watching, sea lions and penguins in the south. A little bit of activity when we climbed Table Mountain! Then St. Lucia, Imfolozi a... read more

We contacted Thierry from Biwakwango in August 2013, explaining to him that we wanted to go to Africa for our honeymoon. Thierry very quickly picked up our interests and what we were looking to experience, and came up with a proposal which matched all our requirements, as we wanted to mix top-class safaris, adventure and luxury.

Not only was he very quickly ava... read more
