We just came home from 12 days in Botswana. The first place we stayed was at Hyena Pan Camp. We were on a safari that specialized watching and learning about elephants however it was far more reaching than just elephants. It was a great place to start our safari. The staff was excellent. All they cared about was our experience, and the guides knowledge on the area are rich; a true education We feel fortunate and are looking forward to going back with our older children We had people in our party with dietary restrictions. They notify Hyena Camp in advance of their restrictions and they accommodated them seamlessly because of the prior notice
We had an amazing time here, a quaint little place managed by two wonderful humans Roile & Mick. The staff too were excellent, food was great, cleanliness top class. Highly recommend! Plenty of game surrounding the lodge
We have had lots of safaris and this place is up with the best. Lovely staff, well equipped tents,good food, good guides. Camp manager was very helpful, friendly and interesting. Surroundings stunning with elephants in the lagoon. Game drives good .
The camp is ok, the staff is friendly and helpful, our 3 guides were excellent. However what goes on there is the artificial creation of an overpopulation of elephants by means of several waterholes where they pump up water every day to attract the elephants. This unnatural overpopulation results in massive damage to the forest - it looks partially really apocalyptic. The acacia trees of the PR - photos are long gone, and even some centuries - old giant baobab trees have little chance of survival. The management apparently doesn't care otherwise they would fence them to keep them alive.It is sad but in my eyes the best thing would be to close the camp and resettle some of the elephants.
The wildlife at this camp can’t be beaten! The elephants are ten feet away when you are in the swimming pool! Lion, hyena, wild dogs elephants and antelope all come to drink at the water hole morning, afternoon and evening. That being said our fantastic guide, Amos, found us so many great sightings on our game drives that we didn’t mind leaving camp. Leopard, lion, birds, crocs, elephant and much more! A must stay at this camp!
