Thierry from Biwakwango organised our 5 star honeymoon in Botswana and Zambia, simply brilliant !

Written on: September 01, 2015   |   I visited in June 2014 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 available to discuss the details with us (despite the fact that he's often on the road, or in the bush), but we also appreciated his relaxed and friendly approach, and our discussions on sustainable development and ecology, issues that are very important to us. By the way, he did not hesitate to recommend that we not go for certain experiences we'd been considering, as they would have disappointed us from a conservation/ecology point of view, which we very much appreciated.

During our trip, everything was flawless and we did not have to worry about the organisation (park fees, plane transfers, road transfers, ...). Besides, Thierry informed us of many important issues such as vaccines, visas, and was very helpful and knowledgeable on everything that you should be aware of before going on such a trip, which prevented bad experiences!

To sum up, we are very thankful to Thierry for having organised such a memorable and outstanding trip to Botswana and Zambia, probably one of, if not the best, trips we have ever experienced. We are always very demanding when we travel, and are much involved in the preparation of our trips.
Thierry definitely did a great work with us and no doubt that we will contact him again for our next journeys to Africa. Thank you!

Our first family trip in Africa with our four children and with Thierry. We had 15 days between Swaziland, Mozambique and South Africa.
Thierry knows how to share his passion for nature and animals. Bonus: his Franche-Comtois accent attracts leopards--we observed two leopards during our stay. Everyone loved the safari and Thierry knew how to keep the kids entertai... read more

Wonderful trip discovering the grandiose countrysides, small villages and magic reserves outside of the standard tourist routes. Thierry shared his passion for the flora and the fauna of Austral-Africa with us, particularly the wild animals.

You'll be guaranteed to unwind and disconnect with him.

Perfect trip thanks to Thierry.
Great guide and cook. He's passionate, funny, attentive. He has a deep knowledge of the flora and the fauna.
We got off the beaten path and enjoyed vistas that took our breath away. We visited local villages.

I strongly recommend Biwakwango!

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
