The tents are well spaced, affording privacy whilst remaining within comfortable distance from the main camp area. Read more

I have traveled many places and spent several years in Africa. It is a place that draws me back time and time again. Jamie's experience and planning we were able to watch the African sun set with a leopard, sit and watch painted dogs and their pups hunting and playing and an elephant swim across the Chobe River. Our meals, accommodation and transport were all enjoyable and exceeded our expectations. Jamie's knowledge of the African bush and wildlife is incredible and has us returning for another safari in 2015! He is a pleasure to deal with and very informative and supportive during the planning and booking stage as well. I highly recommend Jamie Thom Conservation Safaris to anyone intending to travel to Africa and I have done so personally to all my friends! Read more

Eling, Liechtenstein

It was great to stay at 2 different lodges at Kwandwe and being ushered off to our first game drive before checking into our lodges was more than welcome. Despite the unexpectedly cooler weather, the wildlife at the reserve was remarkable. The transfer from Zambia to the Elephant Camp was seamless and in addition to the beautiful Vic Falls, the morning walk with Sylvester, the cheetah, was truly amazing. Botswana definitely provided much warmer weather and the wildlife there was very special. We thoroughly enjoyed the mokoro and seeing the diverse bird life, leopards as well as a pride of 10 lions together were just some of the additional highlights while there Read more

Michelle , Australia

It's hard for me to settle back into my life at home after such an exhilarating trip through East Africa! Our group was ideal size of 8 and a mixture of well experienced Africa travelers and first timers. The pre-departure information was so good the newbies were just as prepared as the others. Everything ran like clockwork, the camp staff and drivers were fantastic, catering to all our needs with a smile, and their own personal experience and knowledge was clearly extensive. The vehicles were well equipped with charging facilities, fridges and they were water tight (a consideration if you are traveling in rainy seasons...). The timing of the trip was perfect as the game viewing far out stripped our expectations. Jamie's experience as a tour operator and as a professional photographer made this trip a safari of a life time for me. Read more
