Wildlife holidays in Botswana

Wildlife holidays in Botswana

As one of the world’s greatest wildernesses, Botswana is a mecca for wildlife fans. The empty landscapes, immense Okavango Delta and network of national parks and reserves mean that this is one of the last places where you really can see nature as it is meant to be. There are many ways to enjoy a wildlife holiday in Botswana: wilderness camping, canoeing the Okavango Delta, bushwalks with a local guide or exploring the lesser known parks reveal big cats, antelope, hippos – and over 100,000 elephants.

Luxury camping safari in Botswana
Memorable parts? The wildlife, the stunning location of our accommodation was truly memorable. Tips? Go to the bushcamps! Its fab. Local benefits? During our stay, we learnt a lot about the different local projects the provider of this holiday is involved with - we thought it was quite extensive. Environmentally, the solar-powered bushcamp was definitely the most ecological of the 3 camps we stayed at. Overall rating? A truly unique experience. Great service pre-booking....

Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group tour
Remember that this is Africa and everything does not work all the time. Be patient and positive and make friends along the way. (more)Louis Carroll
The most memorable part was driving with Makoros (traditional wood boot) to our wild camping in the Okavango Delta observed by hippos. (more)Sigrid Pach
From €2895 excluding flights
Namibia and Botswana safari holiday
Fantastic! We loved every minute of it. Guides were lovely people, very good at their job and we enjoyed the team working aspect of group participation in cooking and camp activities. (more)Rachel Guinee
I am a frequent traveller and have done many overland and organize trip in the past, by far these were the best I have used. The countries visited were more than I could have ever imagined and the people I met along the way will always stay with me. It's a 10 out of 10. (more)Cathal Murphy
Excellent trip with a huge amount packed into the 21 days and good value for money (more)Jennifer Rousseau
From €2595 excluding flights
Okavango Delta tailor made safari in Botswana
Memorable parts? Up close and personal with the wild animals on safari Tips? Can be cold on the morning game drives and take DEET insect repellent. Don't have too high expectations of animal sightings and then everything is a real treat. Local benefits? Very eco friendly, solar power and recycling etc. All staff were locals and seemed to really enjoy their work. Overall rating? Excellent. Not cheap but we didn't need to spend any extra money except for tips and... (more)Janet Gaten
From £3200 - £5950 excluding flights
Cape Town to Victoria Falls camping safari
Memorable parts? Every day was a different wonder but the two days wild camping at the Okavanga Delta were really special. Tips? Be prepared for very early starts and not much relaxing times. Local benefits? Yes, local guides were used in a number of locations but obviously driving such long distances is not exactly environmentally friendly. Overall rating? Excellent.

Okavango Delta safari in Botswana
The highlight was seeing wildlife at really close quarters - the time the leopard strolled through our camp. (more)Lis Woods
The holiday was fantastic, wildlife great, the food excellent and although no mod cons you soon realise how little we really need to live day to day and how much we take for granted over here. A very satisfying holiday. Would go again. (more)John/Cathy Baldock
The most memorable part of the holiday was the locations of the campsites. Right there in the midst of the wildlife... we drifted off to sleep to the sounds of hippo's deep bellied chuckles, lion's roars and elephant's trumpeting. Magical! (more)Janet Hammond
From £2999 - £3249 including UK flights
Southern Africa luxury wildlife & beach holiday
Botswana was the best. We want to go back today!! One of the most memorable moments is arriving in our first camp, and barely two hours later, sitting on a Land Rover just meters from a male lion, and nothing between him and us! Just amazing! (more)Dirk Bettels
Do it! Money well spent... (more)Katrin Nyman Metcalf
From £6555 including UK flights
Botswana camping safaris
I am really happy we did it and I will never do a holiday as memorable and extraordinary again! (more)Susan Davies
Indescribably lovely...the most memorable parts were wild camping and interactions with wildlife! (more)Becky Sandford
10 out of 10....The truly wonderful and magical Okavango boat journey. Softly, silently being punted through the waterways, between the reeds and framed by trees and punctuated by birdsong and and gentle soft water ripples. Victoria Falls - seeing is believing. (more)Colin Pilkington
From €1595 excluding flights
Southern Africa holiday
I can't wait to return to Africa with these operators. It is a unique and special way to see a country and feel the local vibe. Extensive overland travel gives more than a taste of the local culture and enables one to experience a very different way of life than we are used to in the western world. (more)Honey Bernstein
It was all pretty memorable - for positive reasons! Well organised, excellent guide - and the group of us gelled well. (more)Rachel Balen
Botswana is a fantastic country and we had a brilliant guide who was happy to share his knowledge about the different countries, animals and places we travelled through. (more)Anna Downie
From £1885 - £1915 excluding flights

We loved it! The staff was so knowledgeable and we enjoyed the participation aspect of the trip. The people we met were great and it was really a bonus to meet people from all over the world. (more)Kelly Towle
The most memorable parts were... stunning sunsets every night, the clear starry nights, amazing wildlife, beautiful scenery, incredible people, and great company. (more)Julia Ward
From €1965 - €1990 excluding flights
Family safari for teenagers in Botswana
Memorable parts? Many wonderful memories, among which magnificent sunsets, mating lions and a leopard resting in a high tree near its prey, a young impala, lifted in the tree. Lions and leopard were seen in the Moremi Game reserve. Tips? Bring enough warm clothes: in July and August, nights and early mornings are very cold. Bring many memory cards and something to protect your camera from dust and sand. Local benefits? This tour is organized by a South-African company, so... (more)Franηoise Bartiaux

Botswana great wilderness journey
Memorable parts? To travel to an area of Botswana which we had not covered on previous trips ,with hope of seeing the Wild Dog. We chose three independent areas of Botswana to appreciate the diversity of the land and the wildlife. We were fortunate to see Honey Badgers, nocturnal Wild cats, Bat Eared Foxes, Black Striped Jackal, a family of Porcupines and other birds and Raptors. The big game didn't disappoint either. In Moremi all the big cats were visible, healthy herds of Elephant with... (more)Michele Grainger
