Botswana safaris tailor-made
Botswana is one of Africa’s last pristine lands and offers its visitors beautiful scenery and prolific big game in equal measure. Most people know of the Okavango Delta, yet Botswana conjures up so many memorable images for those lucky enough to visit – the shimmering heat rising from the vast white salt pans of the Makgadikgadi; the flight of a fish eagle as it glides over the waterways of the delta; the majestic baobab trees rising out of the Kalahari grasslands; or the elephant family coming down to the Chobe River to drink at dusk.
It would be easy to spend your entire safari in Botswana, as many of our clients do. Others add a few nights on safari in Botswana onto a South African holiday.
Botswana is never a cheap destination, but then it’s never disappointing either; and a Botswana safari is fully inclusive of meals, activities, laundry and virtually all drinks, so there are no hidden extras.
However as Botswana has grown in popularity, the proliferation of safari camps, especially in the Okavango Delta, has made the choice of where to go even harder. The Botswana Safaris page on this website aim to give you some extra information, but there is no real substitute for talking to us about your safari plans.
On Safari in Botswana
Generally speaking, there are two main ways to travel in Botswana. The vast majority of our clients opt for a fly-in safari using by light safari aircraft as you can choose which areas you want to visit and for how long. The alternative is to take a mobile safari which is a particularly evocative way of enjoying the delta and the deserts of Botswana. We go into more detail of what to expect in our section on Mobile Camping.
We offer the full range of lodges in Botswana from the modest to the top of the range. We are not locked into using one particular safari camp operator but generally it works best if your safari uses a circuit of lodges as this gives the best prices.
