Botswana easy and affordable

Our camps and lodges are owner-operated – by people committed to the resources and cultures of Botswana, committed to Sustainable Tourism Practices; including management systems maximising social, economic and cultural benefits to the local communities whilst conserving the environments we operate in. We are committed to providing a quality, rewarding, yet affordable safari experience for your guests.

Several camps and lodges are amongst the most environmentally friendly safari camps anywhere, confirmed by the findings of the pilot project for EcoTourism Standards in Botswana.

Our various camps and lodges offer a wide range of experiences, including traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe) safaris (we are the last operators in Botswana to use the traditional, hand-made canoes rather than fibreglass replicas), camping excursions, day and night drives with guide and tracker, San (Bushman) activities and interactions, guided walking, horse riding, and family and specialist safaris.
We proudly operate community-based tourism projects in association with the various village trusts.

Regions

Makgadikgadi/ Nxai Pans
Tented Camp is located on the western boundary of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The camp on the banks of the Boteti River (dry) is ideally situated for safaris into three protected wildlife areas of the Kalahari.

Not to mention the mere fact that we potentially show guests, with a great deal of certainty, white rhino – yes white rhino too! The area is home to southern Africa's largest wildebeest and zebra migration, meerkats, and all species of African predators including brown hyena - perhaps the most diverse natural wildlife habitats in southern Africa,

Central Kalahari
Central Kalahari, a desert in name only, home to an abundance of wildlife and the San people who live there. In this region we have two lodges: .

No trip to the Kalahari could ever be complete if time was not invested in learning more about the San (Bushmen), who belong to the world’s oldest living culture, and the unique wildlife of the region. We operate all our activities with both a guide and bushman tracker. The bushman trackers are, arguably, the world’s best trackers.

During the summer months the Kalahari is transformed into a sea of green. Despite the grass being very tall making it rather difficult to view wildlife guests can still look forward to great predator sightings, thanks largely to the skills of our San trackers and our ability to operate off-road – a key to delivering a quality look at the predators that are widespread in our areas.

Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta with its crystal-clear channels, lagoons, sweeping floodplains and countless islands, is home to over 450 bird species, a spectacular array of plant species and the full spectrum of African game. The Okavango has earned its reputation as one of the world's premier wilderness areas.
We offer a full spectrum of camps and lodges within the Okavango Delta region; water camps, land camps and combination camps where you can experience both land and water activities.
On the dry land areas we operate on private concessions and our game experience is further enhanced by operating with guide and tracker – day drives and night drives.

At our water camps we proudly boast that we are home to the original and traditional Okavango experience.

Moremi Game Reserve – Khwai Region
The Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta, and combines permanent water with drier areas – making for some startling, and unexpected contrasts.
Although just under 5 000 square kilometres in extent, it is a surprisingly diverse Reserve, combining mopane woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. Only about 30% of the Reserve is mainland, with the bulk being within the Okavango Delta itself.

The Khwai Area at the North Gate entrance to the Moremi Game Reserve on the banks of the Khwai River is one of the best safari destinations in Botswana, with vast open floodplains bordered by mopane forests. The Khwai River, the eastern-most branch of the Okavango, borders the Moremi Game Reserve and brings water to an otherwise arid area. This life-giving water attracts a spectacular array of animals - lion, leopard, African wild dog and cheetah are frequently encountered whilst elephant are common throughout the area.

Moremi Game Reserve - Xakanaxa Region
The Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta, and combines permanent water with drier areas – making for some startling, and unexpected contrasts.
Although just under 5 000 square kilometres in extent, it is a surprisingly diverse Reserve, combining mopane woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. Only about 30% of the Reserve is mainland, with the bulk being within the Okavango Delta itself.

The Xakanaxa region of the Moremi Game Reserve consistently rewards visitors with fantastic wildlife sightings. Permanent water and varied vegetation zones combine to support the wide range of species that inhabit this area. Boating on the Xakanaxa lagoon and to the heronries of the Xobega and Gudikwa lagoons has become an iconic activity for visitors to this area.

Chobe National Park – Savuti Region
The Savuti has over the years developed a reputation as a prime place to view predators in Botswana, especially lion and spotted hyena.

The Savuti lies within the Chobe National Park and boasts one of the highest concentrations of wildlife on the African continent. The Savuti Channel itself was a river, but in 1982 it abruptly stopped flowing. The event was extensively covered by various wildlife documentaries.

After the first summer rains have fallen, tens of thousands of zebra migrate to this area to feast on the sweet marsh grasses.

Chobe National Park – Chobe Riverfront Region
The Chobe Riverfront is home to an amazing variety of wildlife. What is remarkable is the sheer number of animals that drink from the Chobe river during the dry months, creating the largest concentration of elephants and buffalo on the planet.

The other highlight is a boat cruise on the Chobe River and watching, from the comfort of the boat, a host of wildlife come down to drink a mere few metres away.
