Botswana Safaris & Tours

A Botswana Safari should be the first choice for travellers looking for safari experience that is wild and free.

In a country where wildlife outnumbers people, a Botswana Safari offers you a glimpse back in time as you explore vast tracts of pristine wilderness areas including the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve, Chobe National Park, the salt pans of the Makgadikgadi and Nxai and the desert plains of the Kalahari.

A Botswana safari can easily be combined with Victoria Falls or Cape Town. There are also flight connections through to Nairobi from both neighbouring Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) and Livingstone (Zambia).

Our Botswana Safari & Tour options include:

Small Group Scheduled Departures

These offer the best value Botswana Safari experience. Most of our small group options combine the public parks and reserves with time in private concession areas. Our adventure camping safaris set up camp in the wild at operator only private and exclusive campsites.

Fly in Safaris

Many of Botswana’s safari camps are located in private reserves or ‘concessions’ that are adjacent to the national parks and reserves. There is no public access into these areas and many of the lodges can only be accessed via light plane so they offer a more exclusive safari experience.

Other lodges are within the national parks and reserves but guests usually fly between destinations but there may be a combination of 4WD roads and flights. Travellers also need to be aware that the airstrip that services the lodge may be some distance away so right from arrival you will be on a game drive.

Mobile Safaris

Mobile safaris hark back to days gone by as camp staff set up and erect camp in each wilderness area you visit, prepare all the meals and then break it down and move it on to your next destination. Most of our mobile safaris are private tours for a minimum of 2 people. The most popular being staying in rustic luxury in large tents set up with beds and linen and an ensuite bathroom with a long drop toilet and water for the bucket shower heated on the campfire.

Combinations

You could fly into a lodge, spend time on a mobile safari, stay on a house boat and end with a stay at a guest house, hotel or lodge to see Victoria Falls. The possibilities are numerous depending on your time available and your budget.
