A passional and very professional guide
Apr. 2019 • Couples
We did two half-day tours with Tendai, of Maroon Tours. We really appreciated his kindness and expertise. He explained very well the history of the country, he was very reliable and punctual. In addition, he brought us to a celebration he was invited at. We enjoyed a lot this authentic local experience. Some days after the trip with Tendai, we asked his support with our Air Botswana cancelled booking. He was really helpful and very kind. We highly recommend his tours.

Wonderful trip and memories for a lifetime.

I'd like to think of myself as a world traveler. Tendai made this trip wonderful. He's a guide that seems genuine and is a wealth of knowledge. I've been to 75 countries now and this will be one of my standout memories. Thanks for the experience.

As good as it gets!

The experience we had working with Maroon Tours was outstanding and we would highly recommend them. It’s important to understand that the internet connections in Botswana and other neighboring places is not the best so emails get responded to a bit slower than what we are used to in the USA or Europe. That being said, Tendai was just so wonderful to work with. To provide some context, we were headed to Gaborone for a conference and wanted to stay for a few days to try and experience our first safari. After a lot of emails back and forth and with guidance from Tendai, we settled on going to Madikwe because it was a short drive, malaria free and offered viewing of the Big 5. Tendai provided several hotel options based on our budget and we settled on Tau Game Lodge. He picked us up at our hotel on the day we were headed to Tau, picked us up at Tau on our return and dropped us at the airport, and navigated all the immigration and border details as we went through the area. He knows all the folks at the border and that is really helpful because things went so smoothly. He came to our hotel in Gaborone to get the first ½ deposit and we paid the rest on our way to our hotel in Madikwe. While we were nervous having not even put a deposit on the reservation, I would say you can trust Tendai 100%. He is honest, hard-working and very much focused on customer service and satisfying his clients. He also provided good history of Gaborone as we drove out and drove back so we felt we got a tour even on the drive. We would highly, highly recommend him and his company for any of touring activities in the area.

Good day tour, great professional service
Oct. 2018 • Solo
I hired Tendai to provide a pick up at the airport in Gabarone, then took a half-day city tour with him. He went above and beyond expectations with the pick up service, as my original flight was canceled and he returned to the airport to meet my much later flight. THe city tour was enjoyable, with a mix of standard and personalized stops. He was very informative, both about Botswanan cuture and history and about my individual travel needs. He even passd by a supermarket to allow me to stock up for my upcoming safari. Finally, Tendai went above and beyond again to ensure that I got onto my overnight bus safely and texted to make sure I arrived safely at my destination. All in all, a positive and professional experience. I would recommend MAroon Tours highly.

Professional tour operator, gracious host and reliable friend

Traveling solo to southern Africa was truly an adventure. Thanks to Tendai I was able to see and learn an incredible amount about Botswana in a short time while always feeling safe and taken care of. Besides driving me to Madikwe and back on a two-day safari, Tendai took care of my delayed luggage and made sure my onward travel was sorted out. His vast knowledge on local history that he copiously shared during the drive to Madikwe and the city tour taught me a lot about the land and its people. Most importantly, Tendai makes visitors feel at home from the moment they step off the plane and will be there for you for any major or minor issues that may arise. Professional, resourceful and very attuned to travelers' needs - most highly recommended!

Owner and guide Tendai was excellent in showing me and my university students many sights around Gaborone and environs. He was informative and knew great places to eat! We visited Livingston's Tree and church and a traditional village performance as well as the central city. Highly recommended by a professor (me) with many years in Africa.

Another excellent transfer to Mosetlha Bush Camp
Apr. 2018 • Family
This is the second time I have used Maroon Tours and Safaris to transport my group of UK school students to Mosetlha Bush Camp in Madikwe Game Reserve. It was an excellent transfer with the friendly Tendai whole always strives to please. Everything was perfect and I would recommend this company without hesitation!

Professional Service With a Smile

I used Maroon Tours to book a safari in nearby Madikwe Game Preserve (South Africa). It was the easiest process I could have hoped for! In addition, it was a little cheaper than a few of the other outfits offering the same service.

Once I provided the owner (Tendai) with the dates I wanted to travel, they took care of everything else. They booked the lodging in Madikwe (Tau Lodge, which was unbelievable and highly recommended) and handled all of the logistics. The day I finished work in Gabarone, the driver from Maroon (whose name was Umpele, though I am probably spelling it wrong) was already waiting for me. We went to the Maroon office to pay (credit cards are accepted) and within one hour, I was in my room at Tau Lodge. Umpele was very pleasant and professional - the drive includes a border crossing, so he walked me through both immigration offices with ease. On the day I departed Tau Lodge, Umpele was waiting for me again, and was kind enough to wait a bit while I watched an elephant and various other animals playing in the waterhole.

In addition, I was told that Tendai employs all local drivers and guides, so it is nice to know where your money is going. Kudos to him and to Maroon for doing a perfect job!

Wonderful day spent with Tendai
Feb. 2018 • Solo
Had a free day in Gabarone while visiting my daughter. Called Maroon Tours after reading about them on Tripadvisor. Tendai returned by email promptly and arranged for a morning sightseeing tour around town. He was prompt, professional and a wealth of knowledge about Botswana, Africa and Gabarone. As I was the only one in the car and it rained all day, some stops had to be avoided. Tendai was great about filling in the gaps and showing me all that Gabarone had to offer. Would highly recommend Maroon Tours for any travel/sightseeing needs in Gabarone.
