If a group wants to exclusively book one of these scheduled safaris we are able to raise the maximum number to 8 guests and will offer a discount for the extra guests.
A safari is a wonderful, educational and fun holiday for the whole family.
If any of your kids under 12 years of age we prefer to keep the safari private to your group. This allows for the flexibility that will be needed to keep the small ones comfortable and happy.

The tents we use are 3mx 3m canvass bow tents with an attached enclosure at the rear of the tent for your en-suite bush shower and toilet. Each of the tents have camp cots with mattresses, sheets, duvets and pillows. They are also equipped with a light, table and rug.

Our 2022 best of Botswana Safari packages include all meals, drinking water, juice at breakfast and wine at dinner. We are able to arrange additional drinks for you at wholesale prices and include a cooler with ice. We focus a lot of effort on our meals and are absolutely capable of catering for Vegans, Vegetarians and other dietary requirements.

We generally prefer not to commit to an actual hour by hour itinerary on our safaris as there is a lot to be said for flexibility. We do however have to do our best to adhere to one when we group people together.
