Budget Botswana small group safari
17 days from £2295*
Is this affordable Botswana small group safari right for me?
Given the high cost of many Botswana camps and safari lodges, the only way to spend more time enjoying the magnificent Bostwana wildlife is to book a small group safari. So if you are looking for a high quality budget Botswana safari, with excellent wildlife guides and access to the best places to see wildlife in Botswana; then this could be the Botswana wildlife safari for you. It is always important to ask how many people will be in the small group safari; and for this particular tour it is 8-12 fellow travellers. Another advantage of group travel in Botswana, is that they often book the best camps in Botswana a whole year before - if not earlier - so no last minute panics about not getting a good location in game reserves like Moremi or the Okvango Delta.
This is a Small Group Tour
Early morning pick up from Maun and transferred as a group to the northern border of the Central Kalahari Game reserve, where you will help set up camp. Afternoon nature walk led by local San Bushmen trackers.
Next four days will be spent exploring the undeveloped wilderness of the northern region of the Kalahari, moving from camp to camp.
Drive back to Maun. In the afternoon, you will have the option of taking a scenic flight over the Delta (45 min. Maun to Maun scenic flight, rate EUR 120 per person based on min. 3 participants – to be booked during the safari, payment in cash only). Overnight in a comfortable mid-range lodge in Maun.
Spend two full days exploring this beautiful southern Okavango Delta, with mokoro excursions and guided nature walks on the islands and floodplains of the Okavango, camping wild with bush ablutions on a small island for two nights.
Early morning of Day 10, you will enter Moremi Game Reserve, one of the best wilderness areas of Botswana which covers swamp and dry areas. The next three days will be spent searching for the wide variety of wildlife and birds
Head northwards to the Chobe national park, where your game drives will meander along the banks of the beautiful Chobe river during the game drives.
