You can find privacy and wilderness in Botswana where nearly 40 per cent of the total land surface has been set aside for conservation. High standards of accommodation and services are attained by the sensitively organised tourism in this spectacular country. Botswana offers plenty of choice – from camping in true wilderness areas (where lions roar close by, honey badgers steal food and elephant bathe in the river in front of your tent) to sumptuous hospitality in the finest of lodges.
On our set departure Art Safari we have chosen to take the camping option (with the luxury of an excellent chef) but ask us about some of the other accommodation Botswana has to offer for tailormade tours.
You can expect to encounter few other tourists and plenty of game during your travels. We think it’s a truly great all-round safari destination.
We love visiting the Okovango Delta and the elephant haven of Chobe National Park is not to be missed – cameras and sketch pads at the ready!
On several occasions we’ve added on a few days at the beginning and end of the set departure:- Maun is a great starting place for riding – on horseback the game just thinks you’re one of them, so you can get close. At the end of the tour you might like to spend longer at Victoria Falls.
