Essential Botswana

Time to break out your best Attenborough impression – we’re going safari. This trip doesn’t skimp on the savannah, but it mainly follows the rivers and watering holes that sustain life (human and wild) throughout Africa. Drive across the sands of the Kalahari Desert in search of rhinos, then spot elephants and warthogs while you cruise down the Okavango Delta in a dugout mokoro canoe. Camp on the shore of the Kovongo River, take a guided exploration of nearby villages, and watch the sun set over the Guma Lagoon.

  • Did you know that rhinos come out to play when the sun goes down? Let us prove it to you during a sunset 4WD through the Khama Rhino Sanctuary.
  • Try and tell the difference between your buddy’s snores and the sound of wild hippos while camping in the heart of the Okavango wilderness.
  • There’s nothing more relaxing than feeling the African sun on your face as you lie back in a mokoro, eyes closed while your expert poler propels you through the Okavango Delta.
  • Elephants never forget, and you won’t forget them either. Cruise down the river in Chobe National Park, home of the world’s highest concentration of African elephants.
  • Learn what life is like for the Hambukushu people, traditionally considered masters of fishing, boat building, and making it rain.
