Botswana Safari Travel

Planning a Botswana Safari? Our definitive guide to safaris in Botswana tells you everything you need to know – where to go, when to go & what to expect.

1. The Guide to Safaris in Botswana

A Botswana safari is one of the world’s greatest natural adventures. Home to classic safari destinations such as the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park, Botswana offers some of the best game viewing in Africa. The continent’s greatest concentrations of elephants gather at its rivers; it’s the last stronghold of the African wild dog, and the big cats are in abundance in every reserve. There are Kalahari migrations in summer and the bird watching is amazing all year round.

Enjoying idyllic settings and generally accessed by air charter, Botswana safari accommodation is usually in the form of Hemingway-style tented camps or grand lodges with air-conditioned chalets. Travellers planning a Botswana safari with a budget in mind have the perfect option: mobile safaris deliver all the best destinations in a classic candles-and-candlelight camping adventure.

Safari Online will help you plan your Botswana safari. Drawing on our expertise and experience, this guide to safaris in Botswana will inspire your itinerary and set your expectations. You’ll find out the best time to visit Botswana, where to go, and whether it’s a place for families as well as honeymooners.

2. What to Expect on a Botswana Safari

2.1 Camps & Lodges

The standards of comfort, cuisine and management at Botswana’s safari camps and lodges are generally among the highest in Africa. Many are award-winning establishments and several have to be booked well in advance such is their reputation for game viewing.

Morning and afternoon game drives in specially adapted 4X4s are the focus at Botswana’s camps but many Okavango Delta lodges are water camps, conducting their activities by boat, canoe and on foot. Camps set in exclusive-use concessions are permitted to offer night drives.

Remote settings means that most Botswana safari camps are accessible only by air and guests will have little or no cell phone reception. Some camps have internet access.

2.2 Travelling Between Camps & Lodges

Travellers on an accommodated Botswana safari usually arrive at one of Botswana’s entry points by air – Maun or Kasane – and transfer to a light aeroplane, generally a six-seater Cessna 206 or a 10-seater Caravan. Flights are short and often very scenic, and a guide will be waiting at the airstrip to take you to camp.

Flying from camp to camp is the easiest way to travel around Botswana but short distances are often covered by road: a 4X4 game viewing vehicle for short transfers within Botswana’s parks and an air-conditioned vehicle for overland transfers to Victoria Falls.

2.3 What is Included in Your Stay?

Botswana safari accommodation tends to be fully inclusive which means all park fees, meals and drinks (but not premium brands) are included in the per person cost as are safari activities. Laundry is often included at the bigger camps but smaller camps may not offer this service.

You’ll enjoy three meals a day plus two scheduled safari activities – a 4X4 drive, boat safari, canoe trip or guided walk. Camps and lodges in private concessions may offer night drives.

Excluded are flight transfers, tips, premium brand drinks and items of a personal nature – most camps have small shops or boutiques with souvenirs, books and clothing for sale.

2.4 Your Safety

One of Africa’s most stable and democratic countries, Botswana is a very safe country to visit. However, part of Botswana’s appeal is its wildness. Mostly accessed by air, Botswana’s safari camps have remote settings in game-rich areas and are generally unfenced, allowing animals to wander through the lodge grounds. You will be given a safety briefing on arrival and accompanied to your tent or chalet by your guide if requested. Botswana’s wildlife is nevertheless remarkably habituated to our presence and largely ignores us if unmolested.

Although enjoying a largely dry and sunny climate, Botswana is a malarial country and travellers should consult a medical practitioner about the best form of prophylaxis, especially if visiting between December and April.

2.5 A typical Day on Safari

Prepare for an early start! A typical day on safari in Botswana begins with a dawn wake-up call accompanied by tea, coffee and biscuits. Some lodges offer a light breakfast before the morning activity; most like to get going early.

You’ll enjoy a morning game drive, a boat safari or canoe excursion (with a tea and coffee break) before returning to camp for a hearty late-morning brunch. The early afternoon is yours to catch up on sleep, laze by the pool or stake out a photographic hide.

High-tea precedes your afternoon safari activity which ends with cold drinks and snacks served at sunset. Some camps conduct spot-lit night drives as they return to camp but all evenings end with drinks and conversation around a campfire before a three-course supper.

2.6 Travelling with Children

If you’re planning to bring children on a Botswana safari, it is vital to do some research before you make any bookings. Camps and lodges have age limits – some will take children from six, others from 12. Several camps do not take children under 16.

Choose a camp with a family tent or unit, usually a four-sleeper and with more privacy. If you have younger children, it’s usually mandatory (and highly recommended!) to book a private guide and vehicle for a personalised safari schedule. Indeed, many lodges encourage family safaris and offer child-friendly activities such as tracking, bird ID and bug hunting as well as game drives – ask us for the best ones.

Parents should note that camps are generally unfenced and usually set near water with wildlife passing through on a regular basis. Precautions should also be taken against malaria.

3. Planning your Botswana Trip

3.1 Who Should Go?

A Botswana safari is ideal for travellers who want amazing game viewing in pristine settings but without sacrificing comfort and convenience. Lodges, tented camps and mobile safari camps are designed with the discerning traveller in mind and beautiful Botswana is naturally a honeymoon favourite too. Families have child-friendly camps to choose from and animal lovers will marvel at the diversity, abundance and easy-to-photograph nature of Botswana’s wildlife.

There is still an element of adventure on a Botswana safari. Rugged 4X4 game drives, boat and canoe safaris in teeming wetlands and even guided walks are all on the itinerary. Travellers to Botswana should prepare for unfenced camps in big game country as well as the possibility of things running on ‘Africa time’ thanks to the logistical challenges of operating in such a wild environment.

3.2 When to Go?

Deciding when to go is perhaps the most important decision you’ll make when planning a Botswana safari.
The best time to go on a Botswana Safari is generally considered to be winter (May to October) when game viewing is at its best. Little or no rain falls at this time of year, mosquitoes are largely absent and temperatures are at their coolest. Naturally this is the most popular time to visit Botswana and visitor numbers are relatively high (especially July and August).

September and October are very hot and dry but offer great concentrations of animals at water sources, making it perhaps the very best time for game viewing.

Summer rains begin in November, peak in January and February and continue sporadically until late April. Botswana turns lush and green and early-summer safaris are often very rewarding. Visitor numbers are much lower, accommodation and tours more affordable and the game viewing is still good. Elephants and buffalo herds are on the move, new-born antelope attract predators and big herds of zebra move into the Kalahari. Migrant birds arrive to turn Botswana’s bird watching from amazing to incredible.

Note that February, March and April are peak malarial months in the region.

3.3 Where to go on safari in Botswana?

Botswana is home to some of Africa’s biggest and well-known safari destinations as well as several off-radar reserves – choosing where to go depends on your needs and expectations.

Boating on a Botswana Safari
Chobe National Park

Botswana’s heavyweight game reserve is home to two distinct regions: the Chobe River area is famous for its dry-season game viewing (especially huge elephant and buffalo herds) while the Savuti area has well-deserved reputation for elephants, big cats and wild dogs and also hosts a summer zebra migration. Accommodation ranges from riverside hotels and houseboats to tented camps.

Okavango Delta Boat Ride
Okavango Delta

One of the world’s greatest wildlife destinations, this freshwater paradise is home to both water and land-based camps set in Moremi or neighbouring private concessions. Depending on the camp and seasonal water levels, game drives may be combined with motorboat and canoe safaris as well as guided walks. You’ll enjoy superb birding and game viewing all year round plus made-for-romance accommodation.

Botswana Safari Game Drive
Moremi Game Reserve

Protecting much of the Okavango Delta, Moremi is a beautiful and game-rich reserve with some of the best predator sightings in Africa. Several privately-run reserves border Moremi and their lodges offer drives in the reserve as well as on their concession where you’ll enjoy additional activities such as night drives and guided walks.

Linyanti Walking Safari
Linyanti, Selinda & Kwando

A swathe of pristine wetlands and woodlands hidden away in northern Botswana, these private concessions offer excellent game viewing in an exclusive-use environment. They are especially good for predators like leopard, lion and wild dog, and visitors generally enjoy land and water activities.

Kalahari Botswana Safari
The Kalahari

Botswana’s wildlife trump card, the Kalahari is barely visited by travellers but packed with animals. The Central Kalahari, Nxai Pan and Makgadikgadi Pans each deliver a very different experience to the rest of Botswana. Desert animals mingle with more familiar savannah wildlife and each reserve has a healthy reputation for predators, especially lion and cheetah. Green Season safaris in the Kalahari are especially rewarding.

3.4 How Long to Go for?

Deciding how long to go for a Botswana safari usually depends on the budget but to get the best out of Botswana, Safari Online recommends between six nights and two weeks.

An itinerary should include two or three camps, taking in different areas and wildlife experiences. You may want to combine a water-based camp with a land-based one in the Okavango Delta, and allow for a few days at nearby Victoria Falls.

It is important not to rush things – three nights at a lodge instead of two adds great value to your game viewing experience and allows for a more relaxed pace on safari. Families with children will appreciate a few days in the same camp too!

3.5 Permanent Camps or Guided Mobile Safaris?

Choosing between an accommodated safari and a mobile camping safari isn’t just about budget: it’s about experience too.

Accommodated Safari

Accommodated Botswana Safari
Recommended for families, honeymooners and discerning travellers, permanent camps and lodges offer the most comfortable and convenient way to discover Botswana. Standards of accommodation and service are generally very high and guests enjoy all the advantages of a permanent location – swimming pools, sun loungers and wine lists. Accommodation is all en suite and sometimes air conditioned. Smaller tented camps have fewer facilities but offer a more intimate experience.

Mobile Camping Safaris

Mobile Tented Tour
Mobile camping safaris travel between exclusive-use campsites, led by an experienced driver/guide and a back-up team. A canvas and candlelight safari, it’s an adventurous, classically authentic way of experiencing Botswana. And while some mobile safaris require a degree of participation (setting up tents, helping with kitchen chores etc) others are extremely luxurious and offer en suite tents with butler service. There’s enough comfort for most as well as a great ambience.

3.6 Botswana’s Parks or Private Concessions?

Botswana’s national parks and game reserves rank among Africa’s largest and their wildlife is famously abundant. Together, the Chobe National Park, Moremi Game Reserve and the three Kalahari parks deliver some of the best game viewing on the continent. Having been protected for decades, animals are often unaffected by our presence, making for intimate, close-up sightings and superb photography. Set in prime locations, camps in Botswana’s parks and reserves offer morning and afternoon game drives, boating and canoeing but walking safaris are only allowed on Chief’s Island in the Moremi.

Bordering Botswana’s unfenced parks and reserves are a number of privately-run reserves with only one or two accommodations in each. Usually paying a premium for the advantage of privacy, visitors to these sole-use concessions enjoy exclusive game viewing plus activities not permitted in the national parks and reserves. Guides can drive off-road for sightings and also offer walking safaris and night drives. Game viewing is usually as good as in the national parks though animals are sometimes not as approachable.

3.7 Wet or Dry Regions of Botswana?

Botswana is best known for its dry Kalahari landscapes but its Okavango River is southern Africa’s fourth largest and it creates the world’s biggest inland delta. South of the delta are enormous salt pans that fill with summer rain; north lie permanent wetlands and wide rivers.

A Botswana safari should take advantage of these different destinations as the experience is quite different in each. Combine ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ camps for an amazing diversity of wildlife and a range of safari activities.

‘Wet’ regions of Botswana: Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve, Chobe River, Khwai and Linyanti Concessions

Camps and lodges with access to permanent water offer a wider range of activities. Many combine game viewing by 4X4 with boating, sunset cruises and canoe safaris; others offer only water-based activities and walking. However, with the exception of accommodation on the Chobe River or set deep in the Okavango Delta, many lodges in Botswana’s wet regions offer water-based activities only in flood season – usually May to August.

‘Dry’ regions of Botswana – Savuti, Central Kalahari, Makgadikgadi Pans and Nxai Pan

Game viewing in Botswana’s dry regions is conducted by vehicle only. Indeed, the limited availability of water in these destinations encourages concentrations of animals at the few permanent water sources and dry-season game viewing can be excellent. Summer rains then fill waterholes and saltpans, turning these destinations green and attracting migrating wildlife such as zebra and buffalo.

4. Botswana Safari Price Guide

4.1 Why am I paying this Price?

Whether it’s a mobile camping safari or an accommodated fly-in tour, a Botswana safari is a considerable financial investment.

One of the reasons they are relatively expensive is that Botswana pursues a policy of high cost, low impact tourism. By imposing a financial premium on Botswana safari travellers and restricting safari accommodation, conservation authorities keep visitor numbers low and widely dispersed. This means you’ll have game sightings largely to yourself and even more so in Botswana’s privately-run concessions.

Another reason for the high price of a safari is the sheer cost of hosting visitors! Safari accommodation in Botswana is normally accessed by air and you’ll enjoy game viewing with expert guides in specially modified 4X4s and boats. Meals and most drinks are included in the price and camps and lodges are built to exacting standards. You’ll enjoy the comfort of en suite bathrooms, flush toilets and hot water showers.

4.2 Factors that Affect the Cost of your Safari

Perhaps the biggest factor is the duration of your Botswana safari – Safari Online recommends between six nights and two weeks – but your accommodation choices are also important. Several of Botswana’s lodges are among Africa’s most luxurious and expensive but there are many affordable camps in all the right destinations. You may sacrifice prime position but you’ll enjoy plenty of comfort and the same safari experience.

Another factor determining cost is season: peak game viewing season is between June and October and prices reflect its popularity. But the November to mid-December shoulder season offers lower prices for the same camps and tours, and the experience can often be as good. Likewise, if you are prepared for a bit of rain, Botswana’s Green Season (December to April/May) offers bargain prices in top locations – and the game viewing and bird watching can be excellent.

4.3 High Season v Low Season

Botswana’s high season is during the dry winter months of June to October. Rain is largely absent – as are mosquitoes – and animals are increasingly concentrated in impressive numbers at water sources. Game viewing is easy and very rewarding during these dry months. Weather-wise, Botswana is coolest and driest from June to August; game viewing at its peak in hot and dry September and October but this is also when you’ll pay top prices.

The low season is the rainy summer. Rains begin in November and continue until May. There is less wildlife to see in the dry-season destinations as many animals move away and the vegetation thickens to hide the remaining ones. But the green Kalahari and Savuti attract migrating animals and birds and these destinations are often considered to be at their peak now. Cheaper prices and an absence of other visitors make these places well worth visiting if you can put up with a few rain showers. Bird watchers will love the Green Season, as will safari travellers on a return visit.

4.4 How does Cost Influence the Safari Experience?

The more you spend on your safari, the more luxurious the accommodation becomes and more exclusivity you’ll enjoy. There’ll be fewer people at camp and on your game drive vehicle (usually a maximum of six) and everyone will have a window seat – for good reason: Botswana’s top camps and lodges deliver some of the best game viewing in Africa.

More affordable accommodation might not have the prime location of the top lodges but they access the same environment and offer the same activities. There may be a couple more people on your vehicle and it might be a bucket shower rather than a bathtub and private pool but the game viewing experience is undiminished.

For more affordable experience, consider a mobile camping safari. Offering the camaraderie of the campfire, these tented adventures are the best way to experience Botswana on a budget. You’ll be part of a group of up to 12 travellers, enjoying comfortable accommodation and good food plus expert guiding and first-on-the-scene game viewing. You may be required to help with some camp chores.

5. Our Recommended Safari Camps

5.1 Adventure Camps

These are our entry-level accommodations but you won’t sacrifice much in terms of comfort. Adventure Camps have large walk-in tents with proper beds and en suite bathrooms with shower and a flush toilet. The main lodge usually comprises a canvas or thatched lounge and restaurant/bar and a few offer luxuries such as a swimming pool. You’ll enjoy good food, a casual, friendly atmosphere and all the activities of more expensive lodges.

Our recommended Adventure Camps are Kana Kara Camp, Sango Safari Camp and Savuti Camp.

5.2 Midrange Camps

Midrange Camps deliver quite enough luxury for most safari travellers. They have a more permanent feel to them and their accommodations are gracious tented or timber and thatch suites with en suite bathrooms. Guests can expect luxuries like ceiling fans, private viewing decks and laundry service, and most midrange camps have a swimming pool as well as a communal lounge with bar and library.

Our recommended Midrange Camps are Xugana Island Camp, Camp Moremi and Savute Safari Lodge.

7. Combining Botswana with other Popular Destinations

It’s a long flight to Africa and for many travellers it may be the only one so make the most out of your Botswana safari and combine it with other classic African experiences. Local flights and good roads make it simple to combine Botswana with safari and beach destinations across Southern Africa – here are the best ones.

7.1 Victoria Falls

This world wonder sits only 70km from Botswana’s Chobe River and can even be experienced on a day trip by road. But romantic, dramatic Victoria Falls is best experienced over a couple of days: besides the spectacle of the waterfall itself there’s whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, elephant-back safaris and Zambezi sunset cruises to enjoy. It’s the ideal post safari add-on – browse our recommended Victoria Falls accommodation for inspiration. Read More About: Victoria Falls

7.2 Kruger National Park

One of Africa’s best game parks, Kruger rarely disappoints, especially if travellers choose one of Kruger’s private reserves where the Big 5 can often be seen on a single game drive. We recommend a safari in the Sabi Sands, Thornybush or Timbavati Private Reserves for exclusivity and experience, whether as a family, wildlife enthusiast or honeymoon couple. There are regular flights between Kruger’s airport in Nelspruit and Botswana via Johannesburg but safari travellers can also go direct to Victoria Falls (Livingstone) which makes it super-easy to combine Kruger, Victoria Falls with a Botswana safari.

7.3 Cape Town Holiday

The prefect safari starter, Cape Town’s gentle climate and mouth-watering cuisine are just what travellers need after a long flight. Accommodation ranges from 5-star hotels and boutique hideaways to self-catering apartments and depending on the season you could watch whales and great white sharks or just lounge on white-sand beaches. Year-round activities include wine and cultural tours, hiking adventures and penguin encounters, Table Mountain and Robben Island are easy to access and the beautiful Cape Winelands are less than an hour’s drive away – hire a car for complete independence.

7.4 Your Beach Holiday

What better way to finish a Botswana safari than with a tropical beach holiday? Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport is a short flight from Botswana and from there you can easily reach the Indian Ocean islands of Mozambique, Mauritius and the Seychelles, with or without an overnight stopover in Johannesburg. There’s everything from Crusoe-chic honeymoon lodges and private islands to scuba diving hotspots and got-it-all resorts with golf courses and kids clubs. You could also explore South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal coast, home to family-friendly beach lodges, wildlife reserves and romantic hideaways.

8. Top Tips for Planning your Botswana Safari

By planning your Botswana safari carefully you will not only save money but also ensure your expectations are met.

Decide when to go – you’ll pay top prices for accommodation and tours between June and October but far less during the rest of the year. You’ll enjoy the same camps and destinations but the game viewing may not be quite as good and there may be rain.

Decide where to go – choose a couple of destinations but don’t be put off by high accommodation costs – there are plenty of very affordable camps and lodges that access the same areas as the expensive lodges. You’ll forgo spa treatments and vintage wines but the game viewing is generally the same.

Consider mobile – travelling via a mobile camping safari greatly increases the affordability of a Botswana safari and you’ll enjoy a fantastic atmosphere and an unforgettable experience. You’ll stay right at the heart of the reserves and be first out in on game drives in the mornings.

Pack light but smart – you’ll need loose-fitting layered clothing, preferably neutral-coloured cotton (avoid white!) and a sunhat. Winter visitors should bring warm clothing and a light jacket. Use a soft-sided bag and keep the weight no more than 20kg/44lbs because of luggage restrictions when flying by charter.

Look for deals – many operators offer discounted prices during the Green Season as well as pay-for-two-stay-for-three night deals but don’t book directly with the lodge or safari operator before you shop around. It is often cheaper to book via a safari booking specialist as they will have negotiated better prices and will be aware of any current deals.

Use a Safari Planning Specialist – it’s worth tapping into the knowledge and experience of people who know the product and destination. They can give you firsthand feedback on which camps and tours are best for your needs, and will create the entire itinerary from door to door.
