Africa - Botswana

Botswana offers a fantastic variety of typical and untypical safari activities. With its many National Parks and Game Reserves (totalling about one fifth of the country), its superb wilderness (from the Kalahari desert to the sublime Okavango Delta) and its fabulous game animals, Botswana must be the first choice of first-time or experienced safari travellers.

Bona Safari Services can plan your Botswana safari for you and can offer you an array of options, including:
-game drives in 4x4 vehicles
-game viewing by motor-boat
-specialised bird-watching tours
-mokoro (canoe) trips in the Okavango Delta
-guided game walks
-wildlife photographic and filming projects
-horseback riding in the Okavango Delta
-elephant back safaris in the Okavango Delta
-quad biking
-cultural tours (visit the Bushmen)
-trips to view the world-famous Victoria Falls
-scenic flights over the Okavango Delta
-combinations of the above
Let us plan your game–viewing safaris in fully-inclusive luxury lodges and tented camps, or your 4x4 guided mobile trips camping in the bush. Game-viewing, birding, elephant and horseback safaris, fishing, quad-biking, ballooning, canoeing in  “mekoro” (canoes), cultural tours, scenic flights in light aircraft over the Okavango Delta – these and other options we can offer you. You will find further details of the safaris and activities of your choice in this website.

General introduction & information
We can arrange a fully inclusive package for you (all meals and activities included), staying in lodges and luxury camps with large, walk-in pre-erected tents; or we can organise for you a mobile safari, camping in simple campsites in the parks, reserves and wilderness areas of Botswana. Within the mobile safari options, there are different levels, from fully participational ones (erect your own tent, help with cooking, etc.) to ones where staff organise everything for you.

All your safaris will be guided by professional guides who will share with you their love and knowledge of nature. (There is another reason why you need a guide: tracks in the Botswana bush are numerous and generally not signposted, and if you do not know the area well, you could get seriously lost, thereby wasting a lot of time, or even endangering your life).

Fully inclusive camps and lodges standardly offer two, sometimes three, game activities a day, usually 4x4 game drives, and, if at water-based localities, boat and/or mokoro trips and fishing, too. Some offer guided walks as an included activity. There are specialised camps offering horseback safaris, elephant back safaris and quad biking.

How much time do you need for your safari in Botswana? This is difficult to answer, and it really depends on your expectations and budget. Many people stay about a week, visiting two or three areas; some request longer trips, some shorter. Some like to spend all their time in one locality, to soak it in; others opt for variety, e.g. a combination of a Chobe and an Okavango experience. Many add on a day trip to Victoria Falls. If you let us know what you require by filling in and sending us the enquiry form on this website, we will be happy to advise you and provide quotations.

We will take care of your travel and safari arrangements within Botswana. It will be easy for you to organise flights to the two main tourist airports of Botswana, Maun (gateway to the Okavango Delta) and Kasane (gateway to the Chobe National Park), which are both linked to Johannesburg International Airport. Kasane is only a 90 minutes drive from Victoria Falls in neighbouring Zimbabwe. There are international flights to Victoria Falls from Harare and Johannesburg.
