7 Night Botswana Safari Made Easy

SAFARI OVERVIEW

Experience the majesty of untamed Botswana.

We know that travelling during the pandemic is stressful enough without having to worry about the logistics of being tested in a foreign country. To help, included in this package are nights in Gaborone at the beginning and end of your adventure. These are to allow for the catching of connecting flights on arrival and PCR testing on departure.

This safari includes nights in the famous natural havens of the Khwai and Linyanti concessions where the wildlife on display is truly astounding. From massive herds of elephant to fierce prides of lions, Botswana has to be on any safari aficionado’s bucket list.

Join us in Botswana and let the stresses of the “real” world disappear.

Itinerary breakdown

Hilton Hotel Gaborone (or Similar)

Gaborone, Botswana

We’re seeing an increasing number of travellers use Gaborone as a Gateway via Ethiopian Airlines. Offering access to Botswana directly from Addis. An overnight on arrival serves as a buffer as this flight doesn’t directly link with the Air Botswana flight to Maun on the same day. The Gaborone overnight at Hilton Hotel is included, yet the flight between Gaborone & Maun is not. No need to quarantine at the hotel.

Suggested flights:

We suggest guests book onto the Ethiopian flight arriving in Gaborone on a Tuesday and book an Air Botswana flight on the Wednesday to get in camp.
