Botswana tours

Over a long association with Botswana, we’ve come to know the country and its lodges incredibly well. Each of our Botswana tour ideas follows a route that we’ve embarked on ourselves, often one that breaks away from the busier circuits and offers visitors a novel way to explore both established highlights and emerging destinations.

Cruise through the Okavango Delta spotting hippo, crocodile and birdlife. Explore Chobe National Park, which boasts one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. Or head into the wild landscapes of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.
