Tailor-made tours and safaris to Botswana
We plan and book your dream holiday based on your budget and individual needs and wishes.
Botswana lies between South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe and is comparable in size to France whilst having a population of only just over 2 Mio. inhabitants. Official languages are English and Setswana.
The country is strikingly flat and arid and most famous for the Kalahari Desert, which covers roughly 70% of its surface and the Okavango Delta with the Moremi Game Reserve, one of the world’s largest inland deltas. A major tourist attraction is also the Chobe National Park with the largest concentration of African elephants.
Safaris in Botswana are mostly high end and exclusive but wildlife is great and landscapes pristine. You often fly in to the remote camps on small aircrafts, which is an exciting way to start your safari – and it is unforgettable, to see the vast wilderness from the air. We work together with all the main providers in Botswana (Wilderness Safaris, Ker&Downey, Desert&Delta etc) who operate a large variety of exquisite lodges.
Botswana has dry and wet camps. Dry camps are set in dry areas, which are best for big game sightings. Wet camps are close to water channels or floodplains. The main activities here are water-based (either by motorboat or with a mokoro, a carved out wooden canoe). Wet camps are excellent for bird watching but there might be less game than in dry camps.
There is however also the possibility of doing mobile safaris with a qualified guide who drives you and your tent in a 4WD vehicle from one place to the next.
These comfortable camping journeys are doing safaris the old traditional way.
