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 authentic and unique safaris. Experience it for yourself on our overland camping safaris departing in 2019 and 2020 or a tailor-made safari of your own design visiting all the top spots.

Botswana tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.68 out of 5 based on 53 recent reviews — See All Botswana Reviews

Excellent valued tour for people who have the time and prepared to rough it a bit to have a great experience.Guides were very knowledgeable and terrific to learn from. Cook and driver also had many tour years of knowledge. We were the oldest (63yrs) but still had a fun time and always felt looked after and safe.”  

Stephen Leggett • Submitted 18 Apr 2019

The tour overall is fantastic. It is a great way to have once in a lifetime experiences and see fabulous sights.

However, there are numerous early starts and long days in the truck that are not reflected by the trip notes. There are often times when the group want to stop and see more of the country through which we are travelling but this is not possible due to time and distance constraints.

The tour team were fantastic A little bit more advance notice and information would have been useful though”  

Paul Rought • Submitted 2 Apr 2019

This tour was very well organised with the tour leader Tabi, Driver Laban and Cook Ben. All fantastic guys. There was a good routine which we adhered to and this made everything flow smoothly. The driving was great, very careful and safe. The food was superb. Early mornings resulted in us being at camp early afternoon and making the most of the facilities. The campsites were all good and nearly all had swimming pools and a bar/restaurant. The tents were easy to put up and take down with plenty of room for mattresses and backpacks. A really enjoyable holiday. Tabi was a bit lacking in giving us important information at the evening briefing but Laban made up for this. ”

Go wild in Chobe National Park
Botswana's premier wildlife experience

Home to one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa, Chobe National Park is Botswana's most popular and rewarding wildlife destination. Located in the north and just an hour's drive from Victoria Falls, the park is home to a large population of elephant that are characterised by their short tusks due to brittle ivory. As well as ample wildlife spotting opportunities, the Chobe River also offers the chance to enjoy a safari from the water's surface.

From arid desert landscapes to sublime inland waterways, Botswana is home to an incredible wealth of natural beauty with plenty of national parks and game reserves offering incredible safari experiences. Here's some of what you can expect on one of our Botswana safari tours.
