Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Isa is an incredible guide who runs his safaris extremely well. Camping truly is the best way to experience the bush, and his team takes care of every aspect--from meeting us at the airport, getting us across borders, setting up/taking down camp, to making sure we were well-fed and had unlimited beverages. Isa's talent at finding the various animals is a true gift, and he always positioned the truck close to them and at the best possible angles for taking photos. We always felt very safe--Isa's motto is "I have a plan, with another plan". He knew which elephants could get aggressive, and never put us in a place that could harm us or the animals. Every game drive was somehow better than the last, as we'd see things we had never even imagined we'd get to see. Admittedly, we had some initial concerns about having to wire the trip payment to him up front (he does not yet accept credit cards), but after much texting and then spending 8 days with him in the bush, I can say I have never met a more kind, honest, and transparent man who is completely trustworthy, and who truly wants to provide his guests the most memorable safari experience possible. He was even helping self-drive vehicles with directions to cheetahs, lions, and leopards we had just seen. His love of the animals and the wilderness is readily apparent, as he is an outspoken advocate for the reserves and for Botswana tourism. He is an expert not only on animals, but also birds, plants, and trees as well. His team is just as outstanding, with trained chefs cooking 4-course meals every night, and assistants who take care of the campsite and provide for our every need. We were so blessed to have 4 people taking care of the 2 of us! It was incredible to sleep in a tent with the roars of lions and elephants nearby, and then to wake up to find leopard tracks going through the middle of our camp the next morning. "Glamping" at it's finest! I give Extremely Wild my highest recommendation--there is no way I would trust any other company and will definitely stick with Isa for any future safaris we take.

We (4 of us) just returned from an 11 day safari in northern Botswana and Zimbabwe with Isa Sabetha, who is an incredible guide and wildlife tracker. I cannot recommend the camping safari experience highly enough if you really want to be immersed in nature and see far more than you would with the lodge tourism. Being right in the park means you have many more hours of game and bird viewing and it really makes a big difference in terms of what you ultimately see. Hearing lions roar and impalas snorting, birds calling, etc. from your tent every night was just magical. Isa and his team really know what they are doing in terms of safe, comfortable camping in the bush---the food was wonderful and all cooked over a fire and eaten under a lovely dining tent. Inside the tents, the cots were very comfortable and each tent had a 'bathroom' out back complete with a pit toilet (easy and doesn't smell at all) and a shower so we always felt nice and clean at the end of every day. We really can't wait to return and do another tenting safari with Extremely Wild Safaris

Best experience of 2022! This was my first time in the Okovango Delta and Botswana and it was absolutely incredible. Isa very kindly organised a mokoro (traditional canoe) day trip including lunch and a 1hr bush walk, on relatively short notice. He was an incredible host, extremely knowledgeable and experienced and very friendly. He met up with us the day before to check in, explain the day and confirm our preferences. He picked us up from our accommodation, drove us into the Delta, provided us with breakfast and drinks and drove us back. His colleague, who took us out on the Mokoro was very professional, knowledgeable and made the experience safe and enjoyable. Both answered all our questions and we were able to learn about both the wildlife, nature and cultures of this region. We were extremely lucky to encounter some Hippos, Giraffes and other wildlife. The Okovango is a magical place.

My only advice would be to get in touch with Isa and check which time of year is best for wildlife sightings if your stay here is time-limited.

It would be hard to find a better guide than Isa in the Maun area, maybe even Botswana. I have travelled to many places and Isa was the best tour guide I've had. His passion for Botswana and his work is evident and really makes the experience with Extremely Wild Safaris a standout. Thank you Isa for your time, your hospitality, for sharing your stories and for an unforgettable experience.

Would highly recommend Extremely Wild
Safaris for an authentic mobile camping safari. Isa, the company owner/guide, made every effort possible to make my trip an unforgettable experience and adventure, and he delivered! Neon the cook was Amazing, as he also set up the campsite. Isa is an Awesome tracker and guide, and will lead you to see many animals. I will definitely be taking another adventure trip with this Amazing company!

We experienced an amazing holiday.
We have spent 8 days around Botswana whit Isa and his staff: Doc and Oti. We have been very happy and we felt at home.
Isa is a good guide and he loves his job.
The organization was perfect, even if we got some trouble with the car, but everything was solved in a great way.
We want to thanks also Doc, the Chef, because he is really a kind person and he is able to do miracles with food even in the middle of no where.
We were lucky during our safary and we saw a lot of animals and we really hope to come back one day!
Thanks Isa

With Essa doing the safari in Botswana by camping all over is mind-blowing. He customizes the package according to your budget and when you land he is there to receive you, in the end, we will have no mind to leave him and Botswana. He makes sure we have the best safari experience. The planning and execution are brilliant. He knows the in and out of all the areas and the chances of game viewing. My trip with him was so well planned and we could see a good pride of a lion, herds of elephants, Hippos, Leopard with a cub, giraffe, zebra...and many more.

The absolute trip of a lifetime! So many incredible and unforgettable memories made. If you’re looking for a getaway where you are fully immersed in nature, then this is the trip for you. After 2020, this was the perfect getaway! From the moment you wake up for your morning game drive, to the moment you lay your head down after a day of the most amazing sightings, listening to the calming sounds of the beautiful surrounds and the animals - hippos, lions, hyenas, elephants, and so much more, patrolling through and around the campsites, the stresses of life just melt away and you appreciate the beauty this incredible country has to offer! Isa and his other expert driver and tracker, Kaiser, along with his team were very friendly, incredibly knowledgeable (their expertise and stories were truly unmatched), and so much thought and effort was put into every detail, making this the most special trip for us all! Truly the most memorable and unforgettable experience, I would go back in a heartbeat!

I started planning my trip of a lifetime many months ago, and I was intrigued by the Extremely Wild Safari website and their offerings. I messaged Isa (Proprietor and expert guide) who always responded promptly to my many questions. Based on my queries, Isa suggested that I might like a private 10-day camping safari.
From then on, I knew this was the authentic safari adventure for me. The fact that this was a local Botswana company and staff was also a big plus for me.
The 10-day tour exceeded my expectations. Each of the 5 unique parks and game reserves presented different habitats, providing insight into the ecology and adaptations of the wildlife. Wildlife was super abundant on all days. My guide Patrick was extremely knowledgeable and patiently explained the behaviour and ecology of various species. Patrick was a very perceptive tracker, finding more elusive species such leopard and white rhino that we saw up close. Nico, the chef and camp manager, prepared delicious meals each night which I enjoyed accompanied by excellent South African wines.
This was a true camping safari, but I consider it closer to glamping with comfortable beds, excellent meals and nightly showers under the starlit southern sky. I wholeheartedly recommend Isa and Extremely Wild safaris. You will not regret it
PS Botswana is a very welcoming, safe and stable country with the best opportunity in Southern Africa to observe wildlife in their natural state.
