Guided Safaris in Botswana

Authentic travel experiences in Southern Africa

Explore Guided Safaris

Go on safari and take a break from the rest of the world

Our guided safaris in Botswana will take you on a journey of discovery into the wilderness of southern Africa: watch elephant herds taking a bath in the Chobe River and admire the vastness of the Okavango Delta from above. See the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans come to life after the rains and the predators of the Kalahari stalk their prey. Accompanied by your experienced guide, you will learn about the wildlife’s habitats and social behaviour. At night, enjoy the bush life at authentic camps and exclusivity at luxurious lodges. There are different kinds of safaris to choose from and our travel experts will advise which we think would be best suited for your sense of adventure, expectations, and budget.
