A World of Discovery

Botswana Safari Tours

As a land of untamed wilderness, spectacular landscapes, incredible wildlife and dramatic natural contrast, Botswana is a dream holiday destination unlike any. From the endless stretches of the Kalahari Desert and the shimmering salt pans of Makgadikgadi, to the labyrinth of lush waterways in the Okavango Delta and abundance of wildlife in Chobe National Park, there is plenty to see and experiences to be had in this Southern African country.

While Botswana may be a sparsely populated country, its many fascinating tribes give it great cultural diversity. Here you can meet the Bushmen, thought to be one of the oldest cultures in the world, whose lifestyle has remained largely unchanged since the middle Stone Age. Botswana remains a refreshingly untouched destination providing an authentic and unique safari experience whether it's an overland camping safari or a tailormade safari of your own design.

I had the best trip with On the Go. Our guide Thembe, our driver Johnny and our cook Freddie were amazing and helped make the trip that it was.

The tour was great and covered a good portion of the countries visited! The camps were great and exceeded my expectations.

Highly recommend On the Go!”

Loved this tour. As a 58 year old traveling with a fairly young group it was a challenging but thoroughly enjoyable experience. Our driver Steve entertained us on guitar most nights which was an added bonus. Matt our guide was knowledgable and made the trip nice and relaxed. Would highly recommend this tour. ”

This tour was absolutely amazing. All of the crew were fantastic and I will miss them all. In particular Steve was a ball to have on the tour playing his guitar and singing around the campfire at night. Lorraine was always laughing and Matt made sure we were all ok everyday. Could not have asked for a better trip and this shows in how sad I was to leave. I would highly recommend this trip to all ages of people that have an open mind and love an adventure.”

Highlights of our Botswana Safaris

In the northern reaches of Botswana lies the world-famous Okavango Delta where a mokoro ride, nature walk and an overnight stay make for a truly memorable experience, as does a scenic flight overhead. To the southeast, head of the beaten track to the lesser known Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pan National Park, a wonderful spot for a bit of wildlife watching and to perhaps meet the resident meerkats. Outside the dry season, the never ending ethereal lunar landscape of glistening salt pans is spectacular and quad biking is popular. Rain brings a dramatic change as the area springs to life, grasslands flourish and the pans fill up with water, attracting a fantastic array of waterbirds and triggering spectacular migrations of wildebeest and zebra. There’s also Chobe National Park, home to the largest herds of elephant in the world. With plenty more on offer on our Botswana safaris you’ll get to see the very best of this amazing country.
