My BFF used to be a travel agent. She put together a Botswana safari with Ker & Downey (14, 15 years ago IIRC) for the 4 of us.

After a night in Jo'burg, we met DD in Livingstone, Zambia, where we stayed at a rustic resort a short walk to Victoria Falls. We'd walk by monkeys and zebra right on the grounds. DD was working in Lusaka, Zambia at the time and drove down to spend a couple of days with us. We had a sunset cruise on the Zambezi, where we saw hippos. DD and the hubster took ultra-light flights over the falls, and loved it (heh--I went shopping to avoid worrying). Then we spent 3 days each at 3 different camps with our friends. Everything about it was awesome...the facilities--each of which had only a few tents so no crowds where we camped or in our jeep (just the 4 of us) or when viewing wildlife. The guides, the wildlife and scenery--totally fab. We took short walking tours at 2 of the camps--with a well-armed guide. I'm SO happy we went. It was truly unbelievable. If I were rich and the hubster were well, I'd return in a heartbeat. 2 of the camps we stayed at were Shinde and Kanana.
