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 4.69 out of 5 based on 54 recent reviews — See All Botswana Reviews

We loved the tour, unfortunately were unaware of the amount of bus travel but that is to be expected, and have to say sleeping on mats was a little uncomfortable for our old bodies, but we managed and did upgrade once but still had the opportunity to upgrade at other camps. The camps were all good, although we did run out of hot water on occasion. Any discomforts could be expected as we were camping. I did realise on our return that we only had one opportunity to shop for souvenirs apart from the airport shops, a little more time would have been fabulous. The food was great and plentiful, the staff were fabulous and more than helpful with putting and taking off the clips to the tent, very hard to do.

The tour was great, we really had no idea or knowledge of what to expect but was amazing to see these magnificent wild animals roam where they chose, it was fabulous and would have no hesitation in recommending this tour or your company again. ”  

Kerre Millman • Submitted 2 Aug 2019

Our guide was superb, he was honest, considerate and full of excellent advice on travelling through the areas we were going. In the same way our cook, Peter was fantastic - every meal was exceptionally good and the team was completed by a fantastic driver Peterson, who made sure that we were always comfortable on the bus, despite the pot holes. We visited some fantastic places and the included game drives and activities were excellent - the local guides used were always top quality.

The long days driving through Tanzania were challenging, although we were expecting this but leaving one place in the dark and arriving in the dark at the next, travelling all day on two consecutive days was tedious. ”

As this was a budget tour the accommodation was good.

The tour took us to places that I didn't even envisage existing the group was great and we did get a true feel for the country. ”

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.
