Our greatest adventure for a safari

Views: 54 Visited: Jun 2019 Reviewed: Jul 16, 2019

It was so great, we were in Botswana and Victoria falls for 11 nights. Only our family and in campsites. We liked so much to be so close to the animals with a fantastic guide from Botswana (Justice). Everything was perfect: the trip, the camps, the safari, the food. Such an amazing and trip! Thanks a lot. read more

South Africa: Just perfect

Views: 201 Visited: Oct 2018 Reviewed: Nov 19, 2018

It was my first trip to South Africa and it was just amazing. Thierry is a top, passionate, fun guide. Thanks to his knowledge of the bush and the fauna, and through safari on foot and in 4x4, he knew how to pass on his passion. Each place was at the top with amazing views.
Just one last word, only to program the next trip. read more

l'Afrique=Zambia

Views: 151 Visited: Sep 2018 Reviewed: Nov 11, 2018

We met Thierry on a trip with our children in South Africa. I contacted him 8 years later, for him to put together a couples safari in Zambia, after a week-long stay in the Cape region (on our own).

The transfers were perfect. Tide and Time camps and Chongwe were exceptional. We often were the only ones for walks or game drives, despite it being high season in September.

Once again, a big thanks to Thierry and his team. Africa, we miss y... read more

In love with southern Africa

Views: 250 Visited: Apr 2018 Reviewed: May 30, 2018

On arrival in Zimbabwe we went on a cruise on the Zambeze river from where we saw mainly hippos, birds and a crocodile and watched the beautiful sunset. After one night in a splendid location on the cliff edge of the Zambezi Gorge, we visited the spectacular Victoria Falls before taking a small aircraft to Somalisa Camp in the Hwange Park.

We fell in love with the bush, the camp and of course the animals, many elephants who come to drink j... read more

Botswana et Victoria Falls

Views: 202 Visited: May 2018 Reviewed: May 28, 2018

Thierry organized a great trip to Botswana for us. Everything went as planned. We went from lodge to lodge via charter plane. On-site, the game drives were well-organized and with very competent guides. The lodge staff were very friendly and accommodating. We ended with two nights at Zambezi Sand lodge--it was utter paradise.

Super sejour familial

Views: 316 Visited: Jul 2017 Reviewed: Aug 27, 2017

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 entertained.

Thank you, Thierry, and until the next time!

Amazing South Africa!

Views: 240 Visited: Apr 2017 Reviewed: May 22, 2017

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

Zambia - 14 days trip with Thierry

Views: 463 Visited: Oct 2016 Reviewed: Nov 25, 2016

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 a future opportunity.

The best of Namibia & Victoria Falls - Le meilleur de la Namibie et des chutes Victoria

Views: 404 Visited: Sep 2016 Reviewed: Oct 18, 2016

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 almost impossible to describe. Boat trips on the Kavango and Zambezi rivers allowed ... 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.
A new journey under the guidance of Thierry, who showed us these exceptional locations!

Unforgettable adventure | aventure inoubliable

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 rise of the amphitheater, Lesotho and Table Mountain). We also explored the Cape ... read more

A lovely family adventure | Une belle aventure en famille et une belle rencontre.

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 and its cortege of rhinos, hippos, crocs ... A quick pass through Swaziland befor... 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 available to discuss the details with us (despite the fact that he's often on the r... read more
