“Of all the safari destinations I have experienced, Botswana is my personal favourite. Share the magic with Safari Online, your Botswana safari specialist.”

Why Go To Botswana?

Home to some of the greatest concentrations of game on the continent, Botswana gives you the chance to see Africa’s wildlife as it once was. It is a land of big cats and wild dogs, of huge elephant herds and dazzling zebra migrations – no wonder it’s been first choice for generations of safari travellers and film-makers.

You’ll also enjoy the benefits of Botswana’s low-impact approach to tourism: limited visitor numbers, sensitively designed safari accommodation and beautiful, unspoilt landscapes. From the Chobe National Park to the Okavango Delta, honeymooners will love Botswana’s romantic scenery; discerning travellers will appreciate its exclusivity.

But there’s another reason Botswana is the perfect safari destination: basking under a warm and dry climate, it’s one of the safest, most stable and welcoming countries in Africa. It’s simple to get to – there are daily air links from Johannesburg, Windhoek and Cape Town – and it’s also easy to add next-door Victoria Falls onto your itinerary.

What Will I Experience?

A Botswana safari is designed to showcase the country’s astonishing wildlife. Whether you choose a camping or accommodated safari, you’ll be sitting back on early morning and late afternoon game drives in open-sided 4X4s – perfect for unhindered photography.

Boat and mokoro (traditional canoe) excursions are part of the activities at Botswana’s water-based camps while those set in private reserves also offer exciting night drives and guided bush walks. Transfers between camps are usually by light aircraft, giving you a memorable bird’s-eye perspective of the landscape; a few select camps offer game viewing by helicopter.

The standard of guiding in Botswana is very high and game drives are generally extremely rewarding, especially in the long dry season. Bird watching is excellent year-round, and this is a country renowned for its predator sightings. You’ll also enjoy some of the best safari accommodation in Africa, ranging from affordably comfortable to once-in-a-lifetime indulgences. Activities, meals and most drinks are included in the cost, and many lodges feature swimming pools, health spas and air conditioning.

How Do I Do It?

To ensure a flawless Botswana safari, it’s best to rely on the experience and expertise of an established safari planner. Safari Online has been creating Botswana safaris since 2005 and all you have to do is contact us with your ideas and we’ll do all the work.

But first you’ll need to make a choice – usually determined by budget – between a mobile camping safari and a fly-in accommodated one.

Botswana camping safaris travel overland from one wildlife hotspot to the next. They draw their inspiration from the days of Hemingway and you can expect comfortable beds in stand-up tents, hot bucket showers and classic campfire camaraderie. Accommodated safaris divide their time between permanent camps and lodges to offer a diverse safari experience with a layer of added comfort.

Then it’s up to us. We deal directly with suppliers – negotiating better rates for you – and ensure all the right bookings are made. Our industry affiliation credentials and super-safe payment methods ensure your financial peace of mind on booking, and we travel regularly to Botswana to double-check logistics and inspect accommodation to ensure standards remain as high as we promise! And since we’re based in South Africa, Safari Online can respond in real time to any problems you may have when you’re here. With us, you’re covered.

Trip of a lifetime

Richard From the US

“I can’t help myself from giving everyone I meet a run-down of our amazing trip, and people are just astounded. I tell them that it was like being set down in the middle of a National Geographic special. “Trip of a Lifetime” doesn’t do justice to our experience.”
