Safari Packages

Botswana is by far one of the best countries in Africa that is rich in wildlife, desert plains and vast wilderness that is unspoilt and untouched by man. It offers the most exciting Botswana Safari Packages in the world both land and water safaris.

Botswana is such a unique country with incredible game viewing opportunities with everything from lions, cheetahs, wilder beats, giraffes, sables, antelopes and so much more. In fact, it is commonly referred to as the “Land of the Giants” because of its large herds of elephants that roam freely throughout the country and the large ancient baobab trees.

Game drives, like any other safari on the African continent, are one of the most exciting aspects of Botswana Safaris. Walking safaris, on the other hand, are becoming increasingly popular. The good thing is that your safaris will be tailor made to suit your needs and budget. You can stay in a ridiculously luxurious safari lodge or keep it simple with a cosy tented camp. That is where the beauty of a Botswana Safari lies.

What To Expect From A Safari In Botswana

Botswana Safari Packages

All the nature lovers gather up, this is something you surely wouldn’t want to miss. Botswana prides itself on having vast plains of wilderness and wildlife that can be enjoyed in placidity and calmness without the presence of humans.

The country praises itself for its exclusivity and tries by all means to preserve its nature and wildlife in a way that ensures no human interference so that you can enjoy everything in its natural form. You can expect to see a high population of big cats, like the lions and cheetahs and even packs of hyenas throughout the Kalahari Desert and the Okavango Delta. Expect to see birds swooping above the tall trees, spectacular views of the desert valley, salt pans to dried-up rivers beds all rich in fossilised plants and minute ancient animal species.

Best Places To Go On A Safari In Botswana

Botswana is one of the most unique places among African Safari Destinations. Along with abundant wildlife and, of course, the Big Five, the country's diversity of landscapes distinguishes it and sets it above the rest.

Botswana is a virtually unexplored wilderness where adventurous and travellers at large can enjoy safaris with a sense of exclusivity. So, if you're thinking about going on a Safari in Botswana, here are our best locations to go.

Chobe National Park

Along the Chobe River is where you'll find the Chobe National Park. Some of Southern Africa's most incredible opportunities for game viewing may be found in this park. You have a choice of staying in a tented camp, houseboat, or opulent lodge at the Chobe National Park.

There are twice-daily wildlife drives (in the morning and in the afternoon), river cruises, and eating in the golden grasslands available at Chobe National Park. You will have a safari unlike any other in this park; therefore it is certainly worth the trip.

Moremi Game Reserve

Located on the Okavango Delta, the Moremi Game Reserve was one of the first wilderness areas to be protected. You have come to the right place if you're hoping to go on a luxurious safari in Botswana.

There are deals on some of the hotels at the Moremi Game Reserve if you stay for three nights or longer, so visiting the reserve won’t have to break the budget. Tented camps and luxurious lodges with private plunge pools are both available for accommodation in this area. With a genuinely authentic Botswana Safari Experience, visit the Moremi Game Reserve and discover the Okavango delta in all its splendour.

Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge

In the Okavango Delta along the banks of a river, you will find the beautiful Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge. This is one of the few lodges in the country where you can do a guided walk with a travel specialist.

There are three daily game drives from which you can choose, morning, afternoon, and early evening. Unfortunately there are no night drives that are available at this particular lodge. You can expect to see elephants, semi-aquatic sitatunga antelope and many more at this top-class lodge on the Okavango Delta.

The Kalahari

If you are looking to get away from all the hustle and bustle then consider the Kalahari. The Kalahari Desert is a semi-arid wilderness filled with sprawling plains that extend across southern Africa. It stands to this day as one of the world’s least inhabited areas and the only people found here are the San Bushmen.

The Central Kalahari Game Reserve experiences shocking landscape transformations which are quite the spectacle due to the rains. Temporary lakes are formed in the desert which draws animals into the area like the legendary black-maned lions and cheetahs as well as the large herds of impala, Oryx and zebra.

Makgadikgadi Pans

The Makgadikgadi Pans offer a whole other different experience. Millions of years ago there was a large lake that covered the Kalahari, and today the salt pans that remain are considered the largest in the world.

The pans give you the widespread view of salt as it glistens and shimmers in the sun. The area has much history to it from Stone Age ruins, prehistoric beaches, fossils and ancient baobab trees. The large vultures in the area add just a touch of mystery. The wildlife is nomadic and you get to see rare desert animals such as the aardvark, aardwolf, brown hyenas and meerkats. Hippos are also common in the shallow pools and one of the real shows is from the pink swathes of flamingos that fill the area as the rains come.

Various Botswana Safaris For Travellers

Botswana Safari Packages

There are so many ways in which you can enjoy a Botswana Safari. There are different Botswana Safari Packages available depending on what you want out of your safari, below are some of the best safari packages you can plan and choose from.

Classic Botswana Safari Tours

The Classic Botswana Safaris is the traditional style of "being on safari”, it is simple and offers more of a bush experience. It is one of the most affordable safaris and can be greatly recommended for those on their first time in Botswana.

Classic Botswana Safari Packages are among the most cost-effective Botswana safari options. You'll be staying in comfortable tented camps with en-suite bathrooms. These permanent tents are set on raised wooden decks and provide a more intimate experience than our Luxury Safari Packages while still providing all of the amenities of home.

Luxury Botswana Safaris

As the name already gives it away, this is a safari that you can enjoy luxuriously. Luxury Botswana Safari Packages allow you to enjoy the wilderness in style while encountering unforgettable wildlife.

Our premium Botswana Safari Packages provide a more elegant safari experience. The camps are more luxuriously finished and provide more safari activities. These Luxury Botswana Safari Packages take you to distant and unexplored areas, allowing you to enjoy your safari in fashion.

Luxury Botswana Safari Lodges offer an extravagant base with all the creature comforts and amenities you'd expect from a five-star establishment. Following an exciting day on safari, you will return to a luxurious suite to relax and take in the beauty of the surrounding wilderness. While dining under the stars, you can enjoy superb cuisine as well as fine wines.

Honeymoon Safari in Botswana

The Botswana Honeymoon Safaris offer some of Botswana's finest and romantic safari lodges accompanied by an unforgettable wilderness experience that suits every style and taste. You get to enjoy a romantic honeymoon holiday in the pristine wilderness away from the hustle and bustle of town where it’s peaceful. This is a good way to relax or perhaps go on a river cruise, or enjoy an intimate candlelight dinner under the bright African stars.

Chobe River House-boat Safari

This Chobe River Houseboat Safari Package is the ideal way to begin or end your Botswana vacation. You have the ultimate chance to enjoy a leisurely cruise along the Chobe River as you witness the beauty of the ever-changing landscapes. You can see elephant herds, hippos, crocodiles, and a variety of other Botswana wildlife as you cruise along.

You can catch-and-release tiger and bream as you enjoy fishing on the Chobe. There is also the incredible opportunity for bird watching in the early mornings as you enjoy the sunrise. You can also enjoy cultural village walks on Impalila Island. While lying in bed on your well-deserved Botswana vacation, you will be enthralled by night sounds such as the lapping of water and the call of nocturnal creatures.

Botswana Safari Packages

Many people when they hear of a safari tour, they only think of the classic game drive on a 4x4 vehicle which is very nice but did you know there’s actually a lot of ways in which you can enjoy your safari and below we’ve listed some of them for you.

Walking Safari

Walking Safaris In Botswana provide a distinct way to discover the Okavango Delta for those seeking an intimate experience. While walking safaris are permitted at most camps outside of National Parks and Game Reserves, a few operators partake in Botswana Walking Safaris. These specialised programs, which take place in genuine safari camps, offer a unique perspective of the delta and are ideal for families or small groups of friends. Walking in the wilderness is part of a 'true' safari experience.

Self-drive Safaris

Self-Drive Safaris In Botswana through wide and complex landscapes are an unmatched experience, especially when combined with a breath-taking wildlife spectacle. From the rough Kalahari Desert and the enormous Makgadikgadi salt pans to the riverbanks of Chobe National Park, nature lovers will be spoiled for choice.

Botswana's national parks have excellent protection. They only allow for a limited number of lodges, tented camps, and campsites. Because there is a high demand for a limited number of properties, you must book early to safeguard your ideal properties – we recommend booking a year in advance if possible. Prepare to be amazed, whether you're camping under the stars in your vehicle or trying to explore the Okavango Delta's floodplains.

Balloon Safaris

One of the most recommended ways to enjoy a safari is by going on a balloon safari. You will get to see breath-taking views of the beautiful Botswana landscapes and beyond from up above where the view is to die for. The experience is like no other and you get to experience Botswana in a totally unique way.

Riding Safaris

This is a unique and interesting safari that brings thrills across your spine. It takes you to see the wild not by car, not in a balloon or walking but on horseback. Follow animal trails and tracks in a way that is more adventures. Move across streams and straddle through the African plains with the wind on your face on a riding safari.

Botswana Safari Cost

In comparison to other African nations, Botswana has a consistent income due to its on-going GDP growth. The nation devotes a lot of effort to ensuring that tourists have an enjoyable and economical Botswana Safari Holiday. The Botswana Safari Cost will depend on a variety of variables.

The Seasons Have the Most Influence on Botswana Safari Package Prices. Peak season lasts from April through October, during the dry seasons. Because of the sparse vegetation and the tendency of wild animals to congregate in big numbers around water sources during these periods, it is simpler to identify huge game animals (like an elephant). From November to March are the wet season and also the hottest time which involves less game viewing but more abundant bird life.

Safari Package Prices also depend on what kind of safari you choose, is it a classic safari? Is it a luxury safari or a honeymoon safari? Your needs and what kind of safari you want will ultimately determine whether or not you will be spending a little extra or not on your trip.

How Long Should You Stay On A Botswana Safaris ?

For the ultimate Botswana Safaris we think that five to ten days is the ideal amount of time to fully enjoy and experience what the country has to offer. A brief visit of about 2 days might be overall expensive when we include flights and other expenses. The more days you spend the more you get to see, do and the more you appreciate. The advantage is, it allows you to visit more than one Game Park or reserve. It allows you to even see other nearby places as well.

You can plan your safari and include a three-night stay in the Chobe area, followed by five days of exploring the Okavango Delta or even squeeze in some time to go to Moremi Game Reserve. Some visitors can spend less time in Botswana and combine their safari with visits to neighbouring countries like Namibia, South Africa, or Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

Botswana is a beautiful country to explore and enjoy the wonders of Africa, let us be your guide as Falcon Safaris to your best adventure yet.
