The Best of Botswana

A 14-day Botswana Mobile Camping Adventure

Immerse yourself in African landscapes and wildlife on a Botswana camping safari. This 14-day camping safari allows you to get deeper into the amazing National Parks of Botswana.  A truly wild and immersive experience of the African bush. 

Your fully serviced overland experience is led by certified local guides who know the safest and most intimate ways to view game, from wild dogs to elusive leopards, sunbathing lions to galloping antelopes.   Each night, sleep under a million stars and awake to the sprawling savanna for another day of thrilling game drives!

Start your trip in the desert salt pans of Makgadikgadi and Nxai, some of the largest in the world.  Then swap the dry conditions for the maze of waterways that is the Okavango Delta.  Explore the Delta within the Moremi Game Reserve, spying its abundant wildlife by both water and land.  Next, journey north to the Savuti Channel, known for the large populations of bull elephants that congregate along its banks before continuing north to the Chobe River.

Culminate your Botswana camping safari by crossing into Zambia where you’ll explore the famed Victoria Falls and spend your final night perched on the Zambezi river.
