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

Blessed with pristine wilderness, iconic landscapes, healthy game populations, an abundance of bird life, and one of the oldest surviving cultures on Earth, Botswana is a dream safari destination. There's an incredible variety of natural wonderlands to explore from the vast, UNESCO-listed waterways of the Okavango Delta where the vegetation forms small islands to provide an oasis for wildlife, to the expansive Kalahari Desert marked by vibrant orange sand dunes and grassy shrubs where the popular meerkat lives in extended family circles.

There's also the Makgadikgadi National Park, which comprises one of the world's largest salt pans, a stark, featureless terrain that could easily pass as the surface of another planet. With a history of political stability and successful conservation efforts, Botswana is a safe and rewarding place to enjoy your safari adventure.

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.

Botswana tour reviews

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

Fantastic trip, ideal way to see so much in just 12 days. Tour guide, driver and chef were brilliant. Tour guide was very knowledgeable about every place we visited and advised us on the best places to visit. Our driver was great, always got us there safely and was a pleasure to chat to. Our chef was incredible! As this was a budget camping trip we didn't expect the standard of food we received. It was much more than we expected, very good quality, couldn't have asked for better.

Great trip all in all, would recommend to anyone with a sense of adventure!”

I can't fault anything on the tour, our guide was amazing, the cook incredible and our driver wonderful! Great value for money and I had such a fantastic time! ”  

Mariah Hartmann • Submitted 13 Sep 2018

What an awesome holiday, the crew (Godfrey, Duncan & Alouis) were 5 star, incredibly professional, caring and very entertaining. There was no doubt the group were in very capable hands throughout. I think they deserve a raise. Highly recommend this crew & tour company. Best wishes guys. Walburg Ireland”

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.
