Botswana

Botswana is an unforgettable travel destination blessed with abundant wildlife, ancient cultures and a staggering diversity of landscapes. Much of the country is vast wilderness, untouched and untamed by modern infrastructure, making it a destination that requires a little extra time and planning, but one that is incredibly rewarding.

Head to the magnificent Moremi Game Reserve to get close to Africa's iconic Big 5 game animals and camp overnight surrounded by the sounds of the wild, fully experiencing the beauty and diversity of this magnificent environment.

Don't miss the lush wetlands of the Okavango Delta, one of the world's richest bird and wildlife watching spots, where you can encounter abundant wildlife while being poled along gently in a traditional mokoro dugout canoe through the spectacular tributaries of the Okavango.

Marvel at the stark, otherworldly beauty of the sandy plains, dunes and pans of the vast Kalahari Desert, and discover the ancient history, rich culture and artistic traditions of the San people. Then, venture north to the vast Chobe National Park to see huge herds of African elephants on an early morning game drive, and watch hippos, elephants and other iconic wildlife at play as you take an unforgettable cruise down the Chobe River at sunset.

Our unique itineraries are designed to get you deep into the heart of this unspoiled wilderness - so start planning your Botswana adventure today!

 

Leaders in responsible travel

Responsible travel practice is at the heart of every program we offer in Botswana. Our adventures provide a true wilderness experience by viewing wildlife in their natural habitat and supporting the protection of diverse environments and local communities.

Authentic experiences

Our Botswana adventures are packed with unique elements that give you real insight to this part of the world. From visiting the best wilderness areas to camping under the stars and spotting wildlife during a safari, there are many options to satisfy the keenest wildlife and cultural enthusiast.

Ultimate value

Botswana is an expensive country following the principle of low volume and high cost. Our adventures offer the ultimate value for money by providing top quality service and atmospheric accommodation. Additionally, we aim to incorporate as many inclusions as possible in the tour cost such as most meals, transfers, excursions, game drives, permits and national park fees.

Experienced local guides

Our expert guides are the real key to our success. From spotting wildlife and natural signs during a walking adventure to cooking up a feast on the campfire, our guides are passionate about sharing the wonders of their country and culture to make your Botswana experience special.


 

Employment of local guides

Our guides are all professional Botswana safari guides, equipped with an intimate knowledge of their cultural and natural environment and driven to conserve and preserve.

Animal welfare focus

We adhere to our Animal Welfare Code of Conduct in Botswana. We strongly discourage contact with lions through lion cub petting and walking with lion activities, as well as elephant back rides.

Sustainable development

We support the villages in the vicinity of our camps and safaris, implementing projects that improve their access to education and health.


Safari lodges

In game parks, national parks and rural locations we use 3 to 4 star comfortable properties that reflect the character of the area. Some may have extra facilities such as a swimming pool or private balcony.

Hotels

In cities or large towns you will be accommodated in 3 to 4 star, twin share properties that are centrally located, comfortable and reliable.

Camping

We offer two styles of camping; fully supported and semi-participation. Both styles feature quality two person tents erected in scenic wilderness.

Permanent safari camps

Like a tented hotel room, this is the perfect way to experience the African wilderness. We use 3 to 4 star comfortable properties that reflect the character of the area.
