Botswana is indeed one of Africa’s most remarkable destinations for wildlife and conservation. It is the country with the highest concentration of elephants left on Earth, the biggest African wild dog population and one of only 9 viable lion populations on the continent.
Our portfolio of Botswana safaris are designed to immerse you in this wildlife spectacle and in this vast, unspoiled wilderness. We are inspired by the expedition style of safari, in the tradition of Hemingway and Roosevelt as we believe there is a strong desire in many travelers to go back to the roots of safari, to touch, smell, feel and experience the wild, with ones feet firmly in the dust that covers Africa.
Botswana still has plenty of places where you can enjoy a quality camping experience deep in the wilderness while ‘roughing-it in style’ under canvas. Our mobile camping safaris will be particularly appealing to those who want to connect with the earth, culture, and wildlife in a very up-close and personal way. Our safaris emphasize the unique experience of Africa: rising before the sun to a dawn chorus of birds, days spent on the search for game, and falling asleep to the distant roar of lions.

Botswana Culture & Wildlife Safari
Join Bonnie Fladung for this cultural and wildlife safari to Botswana. Bonnie specializes in nature and travel writing and is coauthor of When Eagles Roar: The Amazing Journey of an African Wildlife Adventurer, a 2016 National Geographic book recommendation. We’ll travel to a remote San Bushmen village (which few tourists see) and spend 2 nights interacting with the villagers, learning about their customs, daily lives, and the challenges of living in the harsh Kalahari Desert. We'll join them around their evening campfires and learn about the local environment on a bush walk. From here we’ll travel to the Tsodilo Hills, a sacred place to the San Bushmen and one of the best sites for ancient Bushmen rock art. Finally, you’ll spend 6 nights camping in the wildlife-rich Moremi Game Reserve.
