Safari accommodations in Botswana

Getting around

Safari accommodations in Botswana are comparable with the best elsewhere in the region - this applies as much to lodges and seasonal camps as it does to the few specialist mobile safari operators.

With few exceptions, lodges are located in private concessions outside but in close proximity to the actual Park and Reserve boundaries.

One of the major attractions is the generally small size of accommodations with most of them accommodating on average 16 or less guests at any one time.
