Discover the pristine wilderness of Botswana with our range of camping and lodge safaris as well as bespoke tailor-made safari holidays.

From parched deserts to flourishing waterways, grassy savannah to eerie wilderness, Botswana is a land of dramatic contrast and incredible beauty showing wild Africa at its finest. The UNESCO-listed Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta, is a watery haven home to an abundance of mammals and birds whilst the great Kalahari Desert is a breathtaking expanse of burnt orange sand dunes punctuated by lone grassy shrubs.

The other-worldly landscape of the Makgadikgai salt pans has to be seen to be believed, a vast terrain of shimmering white and prehistoric beaches. There's also a variety of experiences to be had in Botswana from leisurely drifting along lily-strewn canals in a traditional mokoro to meeting the local meerkats in the Kalahari with plenty of traditional game viewing opportunities in the grasslands and emerald floodplains of the Chobe National Park.

Discover Botswana on an exciting overland expedition camping in national parks or sample some of the country's low-impact lodges on a small group tour or tailor-made holiday that covers many of the best places.

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. ”

The tour was amazing,the group I was with was great and everyone got along. ”  

Paul Marter • Submitted 2 Jul 2019

We had a marvellous time with our guide, cook and driver. We formed a lasting bond. I found Chris to be very very knowledgeable and always on top of everything we needed to do during our tour. He helped us out even before being asked and was full of fun and joined in our games and music and stories and laughter.

This is my second trip with On the Go tours and both have been fabulous. ”

Go wild in Chobe National Park

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.
