Overview of the suggested Botswana safari lodges and activities:
To get the most out of Botswana as a destination, this safari is divided in half. The first part of the trip is full of green and lush landscapes with big game and traditional activities. The second part of the itinerary places you in the middle of Botswana surrounded by saltpans and Kalahari plains. Here, the landscape is extraordinarily beautiful, and the wildlife is niche.
In Botswana’s famous Okavango Delta, you’ll spend three nights at Shinde Camp, a classic camp in the northern region. Shinde offers expertly guided game drives, night drives, walking safaris, motorboat trips, mokoro excursions, and, from March to December, fishing too!
Then, you’ll spend the last three nights at San Camp, which lies on the edge of one of the world’s largest salt pans and offers unique game-viewing experiences along with cultural experiences in the company of San Bushmen.
Who is this Botswana trip for?
This trip has been designed and priced with couples and honeymooners in mind (two adults travelling together). However, every trip we create is tailor-made for you. If you’re a group or a family, we might even suggest different accommodation. We can move elements and change the number of days – it all depends entirely on what you would like.
