“Genuinely waterproof bags and cases for everything in the wet season” - Chris22

Trip of a Life Time

Views: 1201 Visited: Jan 2014 Reviewed: Mar 03, 2014

Letaka Safaris organised a 3 week private safari for myself and my wife during January 2014. In summary, highly recommended. If you've got one shot at it, go with Letaka Safaris.
We visited the Moremi, Kwai, Savuti and Central Kalahari game reserves. The guide was Nkosi Sibanda. The trip included game drives, boat cruises, guided walks, chopper scenic flights and some excursions with bushmen to observe various bush craft and tracking skills. E-mail communications with Letaka were always prompt. Overall organisation was outstanding. Catering and accommodation were as good as I've seen on a mobile safari. High quality vehicles. Our principle interest was photography. The knowledge of our guide got us numerous good opportunities and several outstanding opportunities. I would recommend Really Right Stuff Safari Rigs for lens support on Letaka's Landcruisers. The vehicles have a 220V inverter that can be used for charging cameras, laptops et cetera.
I would also recommend a Brunton solar panel and solar battery for convenience and a back up charging system. I asked for a number itinerary changes and additions along the way because certain areas turned out better than expected. Letaka accommodated these short notice changes without any problems.
As expected, it rained a lot. We were never uncomfortable and the team's experience meant we never suffered any restrictions. If you go in the wet season, be sure that everything and I mean everything, can be put in a genuinely waterproof bag or case. We used double waterproofing for vital clothing and equipment i.e. water proof bags inside waterproof bags/cases.
