Know Before You Go
Depending on local conditions, we sometimes vary the order of the camps to make the most of our game-viewing options. The official camp order will be sent with your final documents approximately four weeks prior to departure. Travelers to Botswana should be aware that most of the nights spent on safari will be in tented accommodations. These tents are en suite and are designed to the highest standards and are quite comfortable, with hot and cold water and shower outlets in the adjoining bathroom area. Participants will find the tents spacious with plenty of headroom. All of the safari lodges we visit have separate lounge and bar areas that often overlook waterways, which adds to the excitement and ambiance of being on safari. It should be noted, however, that there are no fences around the camps, and animals of all sizes are sometimes encountered within the camp boundaries. Participants should also be aware that the safari drives can sometimes be long and over bumpy surfaces which can be quite strenuous.
