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
Every part of every day was special in some way. Of course seeing really wild animals in the really wilds the best bit. (more)Jill Jesson
The wildlife, the stunning location of our accommodation was truly memorable... A truly unique experience. Great service pre-booking. Great service "on the ground" - including all transfers etc. Thank you! (more)Judith Frehner
From £1520 - £2985 excluding flights
Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group lodge 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 €3170 excluding flights
Namibia and Botswana safari holiday
Best bits: There were so many memorable moments it's hard to pick just one: walking up Dune 45 early in the morning, watching the animals at the water holes in Etosha, staying in a tree house! (more)Janice Capstick
We had fantastic animals encounters in several places including Mosi oa Tunya, Mahango, Etosha and Chobe. The walking safari in Mosi oa Tunya was very special, we got great views of giraffe and white rhinos on foot. The landscape and animals at Etosha are just breath taking, we saw lions there and many other animals and birds. (more)Richard Stansfield
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
From €2890 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 small group 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. (more)christina monson
From £1740 excluding flights
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 £2949 - £3029 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
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 £1855 - £2095 excluding flights
Namibia and Botswana camping safari
It was tremendous! (more)John Greenwood
excellent, but very tiring (more)Gerard Thompson
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
From €1990 excluding flights
Southern Africa budget holiday
Memorable parts? So many fantastic memories. It was a wonderful experience, too many to choose from. Tips? Go with the flow. Bring a nail brush and some biodegradable wipes. Local benefits? Yes, overall it was very good. Overall rating? One of the best we have ever been on. I was worried about camping as it is not normally something I would do but it was well organised and bug free. Even the toilets and showers on the campsite were much better and cleaner than... (more)John Munroe
From £775 - £900 excluding flights
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

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
Best bits: The wildlife, glimpses of birds and lions, wild camping, professionalism of guides. (more)Mark Ereira
Indescribably lovely...the most memorable parts were wild camping and interactions with wildlife! (more)Becky Sandford
From £1295 excluding flights
Camping safari in Southern Africa
Memorable parts? Most memorable moments were the sunset cruise and land safari at Chobe National Park in Botswana. Also camping at Elephant Sands where you can see elephants at a waterhole for hours. Tips? By all means go to southern Africa but do NOT book with this holiday provider. Before I booked I asked about what vehicle would be used on this trip. I was told about their great safari truck but for Game Trails both camping and accommodation trips they only use a minivan. It was... (more)Nancy Wiesenfeld

Vic falls to Cape Town overland tour in 4 weeks
Memorable parts? Seeing hippos up close after travelling by mokoro ( canoe) in Okavango delta Tips? Come with open mind and interest in photography - be prepared to muck in but better than most overland trips in that we had a cook spacious vehicle and tents . Local benefits? Benefited local people when we visited Himba tribe and employed locals as porters and boaters . Overall rating? Very enjoyable and great range of locations (more)wendy taylor
