Uncover the diversity of Botswana, journeying from the watery Okavango Delta to the arid Central Kalahari, on this eye-opening 9 day luxury safari.

Wilderness Safaris is one of the most respected operators in Botswana. Their camps are in private concession areas, so visitors can avoid crowds and enjoy a true wilderness experience. Game drives are conducted in open 4WD vehicles and night drives are available at some camps. At many of the camps you may also enjoy activities by boat, or mokoro (dugout canoe), as well as birding and fishing. Each tented room has ensuite facilities, indoor and outdoor showers, and all lodges have plunge pools. Whilst many camps welcome children, some also specifically offer family-friendly accommodation with adjoining tented suites/rooms sharing a bathroom.

Please note that this sample itinerary only highlights a small selection of Wilderness’ Safaris Camps portfolio. For more information on the full range please contact us.

Botswana Overview

What is the best thing to do in Botswana?
Abundant wildlife including big cats, small, ultra-luxurious lodges and diverse landscapes make Botswana one of Africa’s premier safari destinations. Unique activities including exploring the waterways of the Okavango Delta by mokoro (dugout canoe), walking with bushmen in the Kalahari Desert, and exciting 4WD safaris are all possible.

What is the Climate in Botswana?
During the winter months of May-August days are dry and sunny with average temperatures of 25°C. Mornings and evenings can be very cold. Daily averages begin to rise in September and October towards 33-35°C. Temperatures from November-April can be very hot, reaching above 38°C. December to March is when Botswana receives most of its rain.

How do you get to Botswana?
Unfortunately, there are not many direct flights into Botswana. Most travellers fly into Johannesburg in South Africa, the major hub for Southern African Safaris. From there, there are regular flights between Johannesburg and Maun, the Okavango Deltas major access point.

What can I combine Botswana with?
A landlocked country, Botswana is surrounded by a number of other safari destinations. Botswana can easily be combined with Victoria Falls, the stunning sand dunes of Namibia, cosmopolitan Cape Town or even a beautiful beach resort in Mauritius or Mozambique.
