ITINERARY IDEAS

A BOTSWANA SAFARI TAILORED FOR YOU!

Botswana safari itineraries usually include the classic destinations of the Chobe National Park , Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve but there are also excellent Kalahari destinations, reflected in our diverse ‘desert and delta’ safaris. Here you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds – game viewing by land and water.

You have the choice of staying at lodges in the parks or an adjoining private concession where you’ll be offered walking safaris and spot-lit night drives in addition to morning and afternoon game drives. And with Botswana’s Chobe River lying next-door to Victoria Falls, you can finish your safari in fine style.

We’ve showcased our most popular Botswana safaris below, designed to be booked as they are. But feel free to ask us for more ideas suited to your interests, time available and budget. We have the expertise to make the perfect itinerary for you.

What to Do

on a Botswana Safari Tour

1. Go on a Game Drive

Led by an experienced guide, morning & afternoon drives deliver Botswana’s amazing wildlife close-up. The 4X4 vehicle has an open roof & sides plus raised suspension to ensure the best photographic opportunities.

2. Explore Okavango Delta

It’s the world’s biggest inland delta, a mesmerising mosaic of wetlands & woodlands, home to big game & epic bird watching. Experience it from a mokoro – a traditional canoe – steered by a local guide.

3. Cruise the Chobe River

Elephants & buffalo crowd the Chobe River during the dry season & the best views are from a boat. You’ll also see hippos, crocodiles, dazzling birdlife & spectacular sunsets.

4. Track The Predators

Healthy numbers of lion, leopard & cheetah stalk Botswana’s reserves; it’s also Africa’s best destination for wild dogs. Crocodiles, hyenas, giant owls & eagles are commonly seen.

5. Walk the Wilderness

The Okavango Delta & private concessions can be explored on foot, adding a new dimension to your experience & ideal for bird watchers. Your professional guide leads the way.

6. Watch at the Waterhole

Camps & lodges are generally set over water: all you need to do is settle down on the viewing deck & let Botswana’s wildlife come to you. It’s especially rewarding in the dry season.

7. Take a Night Drive

Botswana’s private concessions offer spot-lit night drives, the best way to see Africa’s elusive nocturnal creatures such as porcupine, bush babies, wild cats & aardwolf.

8. Interact with Communities

Some lodges incorporate the local community into your experience. You’ll meet village elders, have fun with local kids & enjoy a taste of life in big game country.
