By staying in a combination of luxury and exclusive, semi-permanent mobile camps in custom-designed en-suite safari tents, this safari allows you to explore the best-known wildlife and wilderness areas of Botswana in comfort and style.
The Botswana Wilderness Safari is led by an experienced and fully trained professional guide. S/he is very knowledgeable and will be able to name all the animals and birds you see as well as most of the plants, offering detailed insights into habitats and game movements.
Whilst in Zambia on Day 1 of your safari, you will overnight at the lovely Toka Leya lodge overlooking the Zambezi River. This will be your base from which you visit the Victoria Falls.
Whilst in Botswana, you will stay in safari camps with specially designed walk-in Meru tents. Each tent is sited so as to make the most of the spectacular panoramic views offered by the camp's location. Full-size beds with pure cotton linen and soft down duvets raise the comfort of a camping safari to a new level of luxury.
Each tent has an en suite bathroom with a flush toilet, bucket or standard shower, hand basins, mirror, towels, soaps and other toiletries. Bedside lanterns and finishes create style and comfort rivalling those in some of Botswana's most elegant lodges.
At each safari camp, the central area comprises of at least a generously sized 7x5 metre marquee tent, with dark teak camp chairs, a full bar table and basic library, providing a cool, shady and relaxing area where you can rest during the heat of the day.
Delicious three-course meals are prepared by the camp chef and served on a beautifully laid dining table, often situated for you to enjoy dinner under Africa's stars. When night falls, paraffin hurricane lanterns and a crackling campfire set the evening ambience.
Whilst at Gomoti Camp on Days 5, 6 and 7 and at Jacana Camp or Xigera Camp on Days 8, 9 and 10 you may share the safari camp with other guests who are not part of your group. However, your safari guide will remain with you throughout your activities here.
The Botswana Wilderness Safari is conducted in a custom-built 4WD safari vehicle with open sides designed for all-round visibility. Each of the eight passenger seats is a 'window seat'. The sides and top of the vehicle are canvas, which can be rolled back to give excellent all-round visibility during game drives. Each vehicle contains a fridge and a small field-guide library, as well as a supply of blankets during the winter months (June-August).
