botswana Itineraries

Welcome to the Botswana itineraries page! 

Africa is a huge, huge continent and each area of each country, and even the camps in these areas offer completely different experiences. The beauty of it’s diversity though is that there is definitely an itinerary out there for everyone. We have been crafting tailor made trips for over 20 years now, so really do know out stuff. It can therefore be a good idea once you have had a browse through the itineraries to give us a call for further discussion with an expert who has recently visited the lodges & areas in question… Although we keep our website updated and try to make it as comprehensive as possible, first-hand experience is a much better indicator of the real-time quality of a camp!

We can craft any itineraries to suit you entirely, providing that it is all logistically possible with your time frame and budget. So please note this page is merely here to give you an idea of some of our favourite combinations. We hope this serves as a useful tool for not just inspiration, but so you can work out the kind of trip you can get for your budget and time frame.

A GUIDE TO CHOOSING YOUR AFRICA HOLIDAY ITINERARIES 


All of our 50 itineraries are tailor made for each individual client, according to their budget, requirements and preferences.  We don't sell pre-packaged trips of any kind.  However, in order to show you how some of the different elements can fit together, and some of the kinds of trips that previous clients have taken, we set out here a few example itineraries.  These are for illustration purposes only and should not be read restrictively.  Your trip can include elements of any combination of any of these itineraries - the only limitations are your budget and your timeframe!

Please select the style of trip you are after. If you aren't sure what they all mean, here's a little guide; 

  • Adventure - This is still not camping as we know it! Expect here rustic, but comfortable and authentic accommodation. No frills, but no compromising on still exceptional levels of comfort and service. 
  • Classic - A step up from adventure, this is a perfect style for those who are after a barefoot luxury experience. With very high quality camps, but no super luxury frills. 
  • Premier - For those who are lovers of luxury... Not much is missing on these trips! 
  • Expert - If you are after the very best the country has to offer, this is for you. Private pools, butlers and even private safari parks... This is the creme de la creme of African Holidays. 
  • Then select your budget

      A very airy and tropical feel to the camp makes for a jumpy and bright atmosphere, predominantly aided by the sheer brilliant design of the open main area. With everything on your doorstep and only 15 minutes from its private airstrip, Pom Pom is an effortless, comfortable camp with everything on offer.

    • DAY 4 - 6

      Gunns Camp is part of the Under One Botswana Sly camp collection, an extremely well regarded safari operator with years of experience. With only 6 rooms, fantastic game, an excellent location and superb value for money, it’s a great camp to include in an Under One Botswana Sky circuit.

    • An old favourite of ours…and such a great value lodge.  Muchenje has the best views of any Chobe Lodge and we love the fact that it is a privately-owned lodge located away from the crowds that Chobe National Park has become unfortunately so famous for.

    • DAY 10 - 11

      The Victoria Falls Hotel sits in an excellent spot with magnificent views. Although it feels as though it has lost its charm and now a faded copy of the once grand, colonial establishment. Great for convenience to the falls and activities; Still one of the best places to stay in Vic Falls town.

      Meno a Kwena is a small and intimate lodge that has long been home of the famous David Dugmore! Consisting of 8 simple, yet effective tents the lodge is located on the traditionally dry Boteti River.

      This is a new style of camp to the delta. It has 16 rooms, not the usual 9 rooms, but what a great value accommodation to experience, at its best, what the delta is famous for: its waterways.

    Fantastic Botswan safari with the ever reliable Kwando. This trip gives you the full Kalahari, Okavango Delta and Linyanti experience.

      The Kalahari desert immediately sounds lifeless and baron…it is far from it. It is one of the most diver habitats in the world and home to as much of Botswana big game and plains game as the other areas.

    • DAY 3 - 5
      --countryname-- Itineraries icon--countryname-- Itineraries icon--countryname-- Itineraries icon--countryname-- Itineraries icon

      The teak furniture created by Zimbabwean master craftsmen is elegant, comfortable and simple. Most of the tents are raised on teak decks to afford views over the surrounding plains and lagoon with the resident hippos.

    • DAY 6 - 8

      Located on the edge of a natural flood land, Lebala camp has slowly become renowned for both its superb guiding and excellent location in the Kwando concession.  One of the best things about the Kwando camps, in our opinion, is that they use an extra tracker on game drives, thus increasing the chances of seeing everything around.

    • Overall the Royal Livingstone is a remarkably nice but large hotel with great food, great pool and good service. The location is the closest location to the Falls and with Zebra literally walking around the swimming pool there is something really special about this hotel.

      Jacks Camp... if only there were more places in Africa that had this kind of atmosphere, dedication and professionalism!  To say Jacks is amazing is underselling it, this place is absolutely outstanding but the product is unique and it has to be sold correctly. This is not a big game destination.

    • DAY 3 - 5

      Little Vumbura is gorgeous little camp set on an island and well off the beaten track. This classic Wilderness Safaris camp is a favourite of ours and we have a big soft spot for using it over its big sister, Vumbura Plains. Little Vumbura only has 6 rooms whereas Vumbura Plains is made up of two, nine room camps.

      Wilderness Safaris newest property at the Falls is one of the best value properties in the whole area. Cheaper by a decent amount to their nearby River Club, we believe Toka Leya is an utter bargain.

      There is no doubt that this concession hosts some of the best game in Botswana and yet Chitabe itself is such a good price compared with elsewhere (this camp really could sell for more and still be full all year!).

      Many people regard Mombo as the best safari camp in the world, and we agree. The huge number of all the cats and vast concentrations of virtually everything else mean that game drives are always fulfilling and regularly explosive!

      Jao is one of Africa’s most famous camps. Built high up into the trees the design of Jao truly takes your breath away; the rooms are absolutely beautiful, with vast beds, lounges and outside double ‘sala’ beds.
