Botswana Safaris

botswana safaris

Botswana is sometimes called the Jewel of Africa and not without some justification. The sheer diversity of habitats ranging from Desert to flooded Delta and with it a vast amount of wildlife, make Botswana a simply wonderful safari destination. Botswana has a policy of allowing only small camps with limited visitors which can mean that costs are higher proportionately than some of it's neighboring countries. The result is that there are very few other visitors and so the wilderness is often just yours to enjoy.
Below are several safari ideas, but  with such a choice of great safari camps and in such contrasting areas this is a destination where we very often tailor safaris for our clients.

Contact Tony McKeith Tony@busangasafari.co.uk or call us for advice and ideas.

 

 

Available Safaris

Botswana is a year round wildlife destination but that does not mean that all the areas are at their best at the same time, for instance the common advise is that the Delta is best visited when its full (during the dry season!) arguably the Kalahari in the green season. With such a choice of great safari camps and in such contrasting areas this is a destination where we very often tailor safaris for our clients.

Magical Botswana in the season of abundance

Experience the diverse, untouched habitats of Botswana, from desert to Delta and plains to rivers, all in one of its most abundant and remarkable seasons.

Explore the "petrified" river valley of Deception Valley in the Kalahari Desert where sporadic summer rains attract a plethora of wildlife; the Okavango filled with general game and predators followed by the diverse and wildlife-rich Linyanti and Chobe River systems. The journey ends at the famous Victoria Falls.

Highlights:

  • Exceptionally diverse range of activities: game drives, walks, a full-day excursion with lunch, motorboat excursions and a boat cruise.

    Exclusive access to the wilderness areas of the Okavango Delta, Linyanti/Chobe and Victoria Falls.

    Old-style serviced camping as well as accommodation in luxury Classic camps.

The 5 Rivers Safari      

Our most popular Botswana Safari. Offering great wildlife and outstanding Value.
We offer a ange of great safari camps, at a very discounted rate, covering all major wildlife locations that occur around the five major rivers in Botswana and the Caprivi strip, and at the Victoria Falls.

Although this is traditionally seen as the ‘low’ season, November to March is a very special time of the year to visit Southern Africa. 
The summer rains are a time of plenty in Africa; mammals are fat and healthy and for many species, it is a time to bring their young into the world. The bush is an emerald green, dotted with an abundance of flowers and migrant bird species arrive in their thousands.
For the experienced African traveller and specialist photographer, this is the time to visit southern Africa. But also great for a first time safari.

To help you decide how long and where to safari using our “5 Rivers” special – we have put together some different itineraries for you – these are just some of our favourites – but this is not all there is – the options are unlimited – let your imagination go wild!!!

 Mashatu is a tract of land at the boundary of Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa which forms a massive wildlife conservation area.  Very easily reached, it makes a great single destination safari for a week crammed with wildlife.  

Uniquely Mashatu offers a blend of abundant and diverse wildlife and a wide choice of activities to explore. This is a semi desert environment and is a year round destination, with very little rain fall.

Really suited to photographers Mashatu offers productive game drives in purpose built game safari vehicles and has several photographic hides, built to maximise the photographic potential, and there is so much more to explore on foot, horse back.
