Expedition Highlights

  • Drive ATV vehicles and accompany Bushman trackers to Chapman’s Baobab tree, learning about their folklore and lifestyle on the way.
  • Centerpiece of your Botswana expedition: Time spent with Lex Hes, one of Africa’s premier naturalists & wildlife photographers with over 30 years of experience.
  • Chance for night safaris, using spotlights to seek out rare nocturnal species—one of the most memorable aspects of your Botswana tour.
  • Opportunity for South Africa adventure travel at the beginning and end of your Botswana tour; we depart from and return to Johannesburg.

Lex Hes is a wonderful guide—smart, thoughtful, he knows everything about Africa, and is the world's best storyteller. His 'sit still and observe' method is an elightened way of learning animal and bird behavior, and adds immeasurably to the enjoyment of the safari experience. He's the best!

    Recalling First Time Sightings in Botswana

    November 10, 2009

    Keeping with our singular experience theme, we saw thousands of zebras on the plains of the Kalahari. This is something that I personally have never seen before because our safari regularly arrives there a month earlier than the arrival of the migration. Another new experience for me was observing elephants gathering in and around camp, as well as seeing a red hartebeest.
