Botswana offers safari enthusiasts an experience of a life-time. If you are fortunate to be able to share that experience with a family group, or group of friends then the shared experience really can be unforgetable.
The country covers an area the size of France, is home to only 2 million people and amongst its protected areas is the continents largest reserve: the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. This is an astonishing destination of beautiful landscapes, true wilderness, unrivalled wildlife experiences and lodges offering a wide variety of style and set-up.
What’s particularly worth noting about Botswana is the size of the high quality properties. Due to strict tourism and conservation laws the sizes are kept small, often a maximum of 10 rooms, more often smaller than this. This represents the opportunity for full camp take-overs or buy-outs. The exclusivity this offers a group makes all manner of tailored experiences possible.
When you have a lodge or safari camp and a vast area all to yourselves, it really does become a playground. So if you are interested in bush banquets under the stars, picnics and swimming spots under the shade of acacias. Fishing competitions in the Okavango, quad-biking expeditions, Kalahari bushmen hunting experiences, or happy to just revel in the glut of wildlife offered in Botswana.
Thinking beyond a permanent lodge, the opportunity to get totally off-grid in a luxury mobile safari experience is about as exclusive as it gets. A tented camp built just for you is a special experience and certainly something to consider depending on your interests.
Our recommendation, when planning something like this do your research, don’t leap into something but give one of our Botswana specialists a call so they can impart their knowledge and understanding of this unique destination to ensure they tailor an unforgettable trip to your brief.
