Botswana Tours and Safaris

Discover Botswana's spectacular scenery and wonderful wildlife with our camping and lodge safaris, and our terrific 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.

The trip was awesome. From the airport pick up to our guides escorting some of us to the border so we could leave early (corona :( )

We saw so many things and a great variety. We were safe and very well fed. Moonya? kept us happy and healthy with delicious mushroom sauce and yummy peanut cabbage. There was always a vegetarian option.

Becky keep us safe on the road and was an excellent driver and helped me with my tent.

Gift keep us organized and informed with a great sense of humour. His love of Africa always shone through. I did find some parts a bit slow. I did not really enjoy so many idle afternoons but some in the group did.The truck should have curtains and some small repairs to the seats but was pretty comfortable for the most part. A source of power in the back would make life much easier.

Campsites were almost all excellent. I was in a great group and the three weeks flew by.

I cannot say enough good things about our crew. A great trip.”

Exceptional experience of Southern Africa - Exceptional service and spot on itinerary, have used On The Go many times before and shall do again. Never an issue with any booking ”

Just to say the tour was superb - mainly due to the Crew Tabisha, Jacob (driver) and Ben (cook). They were first rate.

I have lived and worked in East Africa, mainly Kenya, for many years. During this time I have traveled extensively with friends and independently. I didn’t know what to expect from the overland experience.

I loved it and can’t wait to continue to explore - hopefully next time through Namibia.

Thank you again to your amazing staff on the ground. ”

Go wild in Chobe National Park

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 just an hour's drive from Victoria Falls, the park is home to an enormous elephant population 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.
