It was an exceptional day with James and the crew making us feel safe and comfortable. Paddling through the Zambezi with everyone was a great day and would recommend this to everyone! We felt looked after and the videographer would go to great lengths to ensure he got the right shots. The effort everyone put into the day was phenomenal. The guides are all locals (being a local company compared to some other places) and were able to provide a lot of information about the area. If you are thinking about going white water rafting - choose manu adventures! If you are staying on the Zimbabwe side please make sure you have the UniVisa.

Pamela was timeous and very friendly. Fetching us from our hotel and delivering us to the Botswana border. Then met us again after the days activity to drop us off at the hotel. The cruise and game drive was excellent. Plenty to see. Our guide, George, was terrific. Very knowledgeable. Plenty of laughs and good conversations. Lunch was plentiful and delicious served by the lovely ladies back at the office. A day we'll spent. 100% recommend.

This was an amazing experience! Sam our tour guide was absolutely fantastic and made this an amazing experience we will never forget! He showed us all the animals up close including lions that were only 4 meters away but he made us feel so safe through his experience!! If you are planning to do a trip to Chobe DEFINITLY do this one! Food for lunch was also amazing!

Absolutely amazing experience. Highly recommend! We saw so many elephants, hippos, crocodiles and many more. Our guides were absolutely amazing and nice and the picnic set-up was super cute.
