"Making your way to the enigmatic landscapes of Botswana in search of a deeper connection to the continent from which all humans came, something timeless awakens inside you. "
—Michele Harvey, Experience Designer
Answer the Call of the Wild
Botswana—half of which is pristine wilderness—makes for the perfect outdoor African adventure. Gaze over glittering salt pans, endless plains where the zebra and wildebeest stampede and forests veined with tiny rivers. The luxe safari camps make for intimate home bases while you hike, canoe, horseback ride, fly camp...in a dizzying array of ecosystems. Discover Botswana on a private, bespoke trip—tailored-made your way. Here are a few ideas to help get you started.
Discover the possibilities:
Lodge-to-Lodge: Luxe Safari Camps
Our lodge-to-lodge experiences leverage our years of expertise to curate itineraries of a region’s most exceptional properties and handle the logistics between them. Suited for more independent travellers, you’ll still receive the same attention and care we give to every guest—for the same price if you were to book direct with the lodges themselves. A B&R representative will meet you upon arrival and act as your in-destination concierge, while our long-trusted local teams take care of your every need and keep you entertained with immersive activities.
Head out on safaris that benefit the community as much as the traveller (human or otherwise). You’ll leave understanding the unified efforts in place to protect Botswana’s wildlife and environment.
Botswana with Your Family
Rise early and mingle with the meerkats—you may even have them using your shoulder as a lookout post! Warning: Family dinners al fresco may be interrupted by spontaneous stargazing or the distant call of a lion.
Botswana Wildlife Experiences
Let the delta pan out in front of you, or willow through dense swamps and ancient woodlands. Pristine wilderness, in all its varied forms, is at your fingertips. Lions, elephants, flamingos and zebras are all on the agenda. Trot through wildlife reserves, horizon-heavy salt pans and arrive at veined deltas. One of the best ways to appreciate the diversity of Botswana is on the move.
