« SAFARI TOURS »

A trip to Botswana can either be planned as a unique tour which is tailored to your specific requirements in terms of budget, lodges and destinations, or the traveler can select from a variety of ready-to-go tours, ranging from participatory camping safaris which traverse the wildlife reserves overland in 4 x 4 vehicles, to luxury fly-in safaris to premier lodges and camps. These air hops are done between all the Okavango, Moremi and Chobe camps, in single or twin engined light aircraft.

The budgets for these tours vary between a high season rate of $1912.00 for a 10 night participatory camping safari, to a high season rate of $8250.00 for a 5 night Elephant Back Safari. Peak season in Botswana is late fall to early spring - between the months of May to October. These rates are per person sharing. The single rates for these same tours are $2256.00 and $11550.00 respectively.

During the off-peak season, known as the "Green Season", which follows the summer rains, the traveler can obtain some exceptional special deals for travel to Botswana. During this time, some outfitters and operators drop single supplement rates.

For youngsters and budget travelers, there are companies which specialize in overland expeditions in large overland vehicles, camping mostly in government administered camp grounds on the fringes of the Delta. Travelers usually contribute to a food kitty and everyone helps with the daily chores.

Although fun and exhilirating for these travelers, the ultimate way to see Botswana is to get away from the main areas, deep into the heartlands of Moremi, Chobe, Linyanti and the Okavango, by either getting a consultant to tailor a tour to your needs, or by selecting a safari which mets your criteria in terms of budget and expectations.

These tours are generally fully inclusive of all meals, drinks and activities. When searching for a tour, our site displays very clearly what is included and excluded in the cost, so the traveler is not faced with any unpleasant surprises on arrival.
